NYC Broken Bone Injury Lawyers
Broken bones happen all the time, and for the most part, breaking a bone isn’t considered a serious injury and it requires little medical intervention (a couple visits, an X-Ray, and perhaps a cast or sling). Nonetheless, due to the high expenses involved with any type of medical procedure, as well as the financial damages that may result from the broken bone, such as lost wages at work, a simple broken bone can be quite expensive.
Especially if the broken bone resulted from the negligence or wrongdoing of another, or if the insurance company doesn’t want to compensate your losses, the NYC broken bone injury lawyers at Hoffmaier & Hoffmaier can help. There are ways to recover financial damages caused by the personal injury, and our attorneys can assure a thorough, professional, and diligent approach to fighting for the compensation and justice you deserve.
Reasons for a Broken Bone Lawsuit
There are obviously many causes of broken bones. As a kid, you may have broken your arm falling out a tree or broken an ankle in sports. Often, the high school sports teams right here in NYC endure several broken bones a year. For a standard broken bone that was not due to the negligence or malicious action of another, and the insurance provider is helping you out with the medical expenses, then there may not be a need for a lawyer.
You may need an NYC personal injury lawyer if the broken bones were caused by the negligent actions of another or if the insurance company is not providing reasonable compensation. Some situations that often render the need for a personal injury lawyer include:
- Car accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Premises liability
- Slip and fall accidents
- Workplace accidents
The Importance of Medical Evidence
If pursuing the responsible party(s) or your insurer with a personal injury lawsuit, one of the most important pieces of evidence will be your medical evidence. Things like X-ray images and other medical imaging are essential when showing courts or your insurers the extent of the damages. In general, “hard” injuries such as broken bones are indisputable.
However, keep in mind that this isn’t the only piece of evidence. If you are holding another party(s) responsible for your injuries, you will need to prove that the other party was acting negligent or wrongful. For instance, something like a police citation saying the other driver ran through a red light would be good evidence showing that the other party was being negligent and unnecessarily caused your injuries.
