Broken Arm Injury Lawyers

Whether you break your arm during a slip-and-fall accident at work or it’s fractured in a car accident, a broken arm is more than a minor inconvenience. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may need surgery and rehabilitation that lead to ongoing medical bills and pain. Your broken arm may even lead to long-term disability that impacts your ability to work.

Some broken arms heal quickly, but others take months or longer to properly heal. When you break an arm, you may experience symptoms such as numbness, stiffness, limited range of motion, tenderness, swelling, and pain. The severity of pain may vary based on whether your accident resulted in a slight crack in a bone or a complete break all the way through it. But no matter what type of broken arm you experienced, you may be overwhelmed by the aftermath.

If an accident or negligence led to your injury, a broken arm injury lawyer can help you seek compensation for any damages and losses you experienced. 

Damages in a Broken Arm Injury Case

The severity of your arm injury and how it interferes with your life can significantly affect how much compensation you may receive in your case. The more severe your broken arm injury and the longer it impacts your ability to perform everyday tasks and work, the more you are likely to be awarded.

A broken arm can affect the ulna or radius — the two main bones in your forearm — the upper part of your arm (the humerus), or your elbow. No matter which bones are impacted, you may need surgery to fix the break. After surgery, your arm will need to be put in a cast. It can take up to three months for a broken bone to heal, but the lasting effects from your broken arm will be unknown until the cast comes off. 

Both while you’re healing and afterwards, your broken arm may affect your ability to do simple tasks like driving, putting on your shoes, playing with your kids, and getting dressed for work. The pain you experience can also cause you to miss out on activities you typically enjoy or be forced to take time off from work to rest and recover. 

No matter how severe your injury or its long-term effects, our Austin broken arm injury lawyers can make sure you receive fair compensation. We can help you recover damages such as:     

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation and recovery expenses
  • Lost wages and future income
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Other expenses, such as childcare or in-house care required

A broken arm injury lawyer can help prove that another party was at fault for your injury and that you experienced short- and long-term losses as a result. Our Austin broken arm injury lawyers can help determine what types of damages you may be able to recover, and they can work with your medical providers to show that an accident caused or contributed to your arm injury. They will also ensure that you have documentation and medical records that show any actual costs associated with your broken arm to help you maximize your recovery.

What Factors Can Affect Your Broken Arm Injury Case?

The circumstances and long-term impact of your accident and injury are unique, so it’s difficult to determine the value of your settlement without having your case reviewed by a broken arm injury lawyer. There are a variety of factors that can affect how much compensation you can receive in your case, including:

  • The extent of your injuries. If an accident resulted in a break that caused bone to pierce through your skin and needed major surgery, you may be able to recover more than if you experienced a small stress fracture that only required casting and rest. 
  • Having comprehensive medical documentation. When you experience a broken arm injury, it’s vital to get medical treatment immediately. It’s important to keep any medical documentation related to your arm injury, including X-rays, diagnoses, prescriptions, and bills. If you are already undergoing physical therapy or other treatments, it’s also recommended that you keep all of the paperwork related to ongoing recovery to show the extent of the injury’s impact on your life.
  • If you’ve been unable to work. If you have a broken arm, chances are you will need time off from work and other responsibilities to heal. How much time you’ll need to take off depends on your arm injury, what treatments you need, and any ongoing complications. If your broken arm injury results in you not being able to work — either presently or in the long term — you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and future earnings. 
  • How much insurance will pay out. Insurance policies typically put a limit on how much they’ll pay out in damages. If your losses exceed the coverage limits of the at-fault party, they may not have enough to cover your medical costs along with other costs and losses. A broken arm injury lawyer can help determine the other party’s insurance amounts as well as other sources of recovery to get you the most compensation possible. 
How a Lawyer Can Help with Your Broken Arm Injury Case

Broken arm injury cases can be very complicated, especially if there were multiple parties involved. For a successful case, you’ll need to show that the accident caused your injury and any resulting financial and physical impacts. You will also need to work with a variety of medical providers as well as insurance companies who may try to avoid paying out your claim. 

An experienced broken arm injury lawyer can help establish the cause of your accident and the long-term damage. If you experienced a serious injury, your attorney can hire a bone forensics expert to reconstruct the accident that caused your broken arm and show how it resulted in your injury. Your attorney may also work with medical experts to show how long it will take your injury to heal and if there’s a chance of future complications. 

Our Austin broken arm injury lawyers can also negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and gather all the evidence required to prove your claim. Based on all of this information, your lawyer will evaluate how much compensation you may be able to receive and work diligently to get you the financial compensation you’re entitled to.
