Compensation for Bone Fracture Injuries
Receiving medical treatment for bone fractures is costly. Surgery and physical rehabilitation are some of the expenses included. Casts, crutches, arm slings, and wheelchairs are the medical devices often used by patients. It takes several weeks for broken bones to heal. In some cases, the injury is so severe that there will be permanent damage and the fracture won’t completely heal. Some patients will continue to experience chronic pain and need to use prescription medication. All of these factors are taken into account when assessing the financial recovery being sought from the negligent party in a personal injury case.
