Broken bones can significantly impact a person’s quality of life and may require extensive medical care and rehabilitation. This comprehensive guide will help you understand the causes, signs, symptoms, and treatment options for broken bones, discuss the legal rights of those suffering from these injuries, and how our experienced personal injury lawyers can help.

If you’ve suffered a broken bone due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, contact Abogadas305 in Miami today for a free consultation. We can help you pursue the compensation you deserve for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.

Common Accidents Resulting in Broken Bones

Broken bones can result from various accidents, including:

  • Motor vehicle accidents, including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents, which can occur on wet or uneven surfaces, icy sidewalks, or other hazards
  • Workplace accidents, including construction site accidents, factory accidents, and accidents involving heavy machinery or equipment
  • Defective product accidents, where a faulty or poorly designed product causes harm to a consumer
  • Medical malpractice, where a healthcare professional fails to provide adequate care or makes a mistake that causes harm to a patient

It is important to take precautions to prevent these types of injuries, such as seeking medical attention immediately after an accident or injury.

Steps to Take After an Accident

After breaking a bone in an accident, it is crucial to take immediate action to protect your health and well-being and preserve any potential legal claims you may have.

Here are the steps to take after an injury:

  1. Seek medical attention. The first and most important step after any injury is to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
  2. Collect evidence. Gather evidence to support any potential legal claims you may have.
  3. Contact a personal injury law firm. If you have suffered broken bones, it is in your best interest to contact a personal injury law firm as soon as possible.
  4. Follow doctor’s orders. This may include physical therapy, medication, or other forms of medical care.
  5. Keep records of your expenses. This includes medical bills, lost wages, and any other costs associated with the accident or injury.

Taking these steps after suffering a broken bone can help protect your health, your legal rights, and your financial well-being.

Signs & Symptoms of Broken Bones

Broken bones can manifest in various ways, including:

  • Pain or tenderness at the site of the injury
  • Swelling or bruising around the affected area
  • Deformity or abnormal positioning of the affected limb or joint
  • Inability to move the affected limb or joint
  • Grating or cracking sound or sensation at the site of the injury
  • Numbness or tingling sensation in the affected limb or extremity
  • Pale, cool, or clammy skin around the affected area
  • Loss of sensation or muscle function in the affected limb or extremity

If you suspect you have a broken bone or have experienced any of these symptoms after an accident or injury, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately. Delaying treatment for a broken bone can lead to complications and potentially long-term damage.

Legal Rights for Broken Bone Victims

Individuals who have suffered broken bones due to another party’s negligence have legal rights to seek compensation for their damages. Understanding these rights is crucial to ensure victims receive the financial support they need to recover from their injuries and move forward.

Establishing Negligence

To seek compensation, the injured party must prove that another party’s negligence caused their broken bones.

This may involve demonstrating that:

  • The at-fault party had a duty of care to the injured person (e.g., a driver has a responsibility to operate their vehicle safely)
  • The at-fault party breached their duty of care (e.g., by driving recklessly or failing to maintain a safe environment)
  • The breach of duty directly caused the broken bone(s)
  • The injured party suffered damages as a result of the injury (e.g., medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and suffering)

The presence of these three elements constitutes the negligence factor, determining if your injury claim is valid.

Statute of Limitations

Florida has a statute of limitations that sets a deadline for filing a personal injury claim, which can vary depending on the case’s specific circumstances. For injuries sustained before March 24, 2023, you have four years to file a lawsuit for a negligence claim. For injuries sustained after March 24, 2023, the statute of limitations is two years.

It is essential to consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the injury to ensure that your claim is filed within the required time frame.

Compensation for Damages

If you have suffered broken bones due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for various damages.

These can include:

  • Medical expenses — Compensation for medical expenses cover the cost of treatment for your broken bones, including doctor visits, physical therapy, medications, and any necessary surgeries or procedures.
  • Lost wages — If your injury has caused you to miss work or lose income, you may be entitled to compensation for your past and future wages.
  • Pain and suffering — Compensation for pain and suffering addresses the physical pain and emotional distress you have experienced due to your injury.
  • Emotional distress — In some cases, victims may be entitled to compensation for the psychological impact of their injury, such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life — If your broken bone has significantly impacted your ability to enjoy your usual activities and hobbies, you may be entitled to compensation for this loss.

It is essential to consult with a personal injury attorney experienced in handling broken bone injury cases to ensure your rights are protected and you receive the compensation you deserve.
