Lawyer for Broken Bone in a Car Accident

Attorney Armando Edmiston serves clients in Tampa and all of FL

Due to the violent nature of car accidents, you are at risk of fracturing or breaking pretty much any bone in your body in the event of a crash. Collisions create a lot of force and release large amounts of energy. When your body takes the brunt of that energy, the result can be a bone fracture or break. A broken bone – especially a broken arm – is one of the most common car accident injuries.

Often painful and debilitating, a broken bone can have a major impact on your lifestyle. It doesn’t matter if you sustained a transverse, compound, comminuted or any other type of fracture. If you suffer a broken bone in a car accident, it can have devastating consequences. You may not be able to go back to work. You may suffer from immobility, scarring, and disfigurement. Worse yet, your broken bone could be so severe that you require surgical amputation.

The physical, emotional, and financial impact of a broken bone can be a lot to handle on your own, which is why you may want to seek help from an experienced lawyer when trying to recover compensation for your damages. Attorney Armando Edmiston, founder of Armando Personal Injury Law in Tampa, knows how to get you the compensation you deserve so that you don’t end up having to pay out of pocket for your injury.
