Some Virginia lawyers will tell you that you can get anywhere from $115,000 to $1,000,00 for your broken leg after a car accident. However, no lawyer should answer that question without first knowing the details of your case.
In cases that involve a broken femur, fibula, or tibia bone, there are very specific costs that you will accrue during treatment. Because of your injury, you will accrue lost wages, medical bills, and out-of-pocket expenses. The settlement for your injury is based on these factors including other factors that the insurance company will evaluate.
Pre-existing conditions: Insurance companies can assert that your injury is the result of a pre-existing condition and deny your claim. A pre-existing condition can also affect your settlement amount. When you speak to an attorney, be upfront and honest about any illness and injuries that you may have had before the accident.
Claimant's Occupation: If your occupation is sedentary, this will definitely affect the amount of money you will receive in a broken leg case. If your occupation keeps you at a desk most of the day, it might be difficult to claim lost wages.
Required Treatment: There are different types of bone fractures. Examples are compound fractures, simple fractures, stress fractures just to name a few. Certain types of fractures are more severe and require more treatment. If the treatment of your fracture is invasive, expensive, or complicated you may receive more compensation.
