Any broken or fractured bone is considered a serious injury. An insurance company may be eager to settle for a quick and seemingly tidy sum, knowing that your case is likely worth much more in the long term.
At the Law Office of John W. Redmann, L.L.C., we know that the value of a bone injury case is measured in the length of your recovery and any residual pain or impairment. Our experienced New Orleans bone injury attorneys can gauge the difference between a fair settlement and one that sells you short.
For more than 20 years, our founding New Orleans personal injury attorney has represented victims of motor vehicle collisions and other personal injury accidents. There are 206 bones in the human body, and we have recovered compensation for most of them, including:
Most people recover from a broken bone, in which case compensation chiefly covers medical treatment, lost wages, and the short-term pain and suffering. In the case of weight-bearing bones, compound fractures, shattered bones or crush injuries, it may be necessary to surgically repair the bones with metal rods and pins. Such injuries usually mean many months of rehab and lost time from work.
Improper or incomplete healing can lead to weakness, lost range of motion, chronic pain, infection or more surgery. A broken bone that becomes a lifelong injury adds significant value to a personal injury claim. This is why we delay settlement until the client fully recovers or reaches maximum medical improvement.
John W. Redmann is personally involved in your case, from initial diagnosis and investigation of the accident through settlement or litigation. For a free consultation with a New Orleans bone injury attorney, contact us online or call (504) 500-5000 today.
