Seattle Car Accident Fracture Attorneys

Auto Accidents and Bone Fractures

There are many different types of injuries that are commonly suffered in car accidents, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage and lacerations. Another serious injury that can be suffered in a car crash is bone fractures. Fractures resulting from collisions can be devastating because they often involve several bones being broken or crushed at once. The resulting medical expenses and time away from work connected to these types of injuries can cause significant financial burdens. That is why victims of fracture injuries would be well-advised to speak with a Seattle car accident attorney at Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. regarding their legal rights and options.

Common Types of Fractures

The type of bone fractures a car crash injury victim sustains depends on the type of crash:

Occupants of a vehicle that are about to be involved in a collision may put their arms out to brace themselves, which may result in fractured arms and wrists. Victims who suffer these types of fractures may never be able to regain the mobility or physical abilities they had prior to the crash.

Car Accident Bone Injury Losses and Damages in Seattle

There are many potential damages suffered in a bone fracture injury. The bills add up rather quickly after a serious injury crash. Victims face medical expenses including emergency room costs as well as cost of hospitalization, surgery, medical equipment and medication. Over time, the injured victim may require physical therapy to try to regain his or her mobility.

All of these substantial financial losses may occur while the injured victim is missing work and physically unable to earn wages. Victims of these types of injuries also undergo significant physical pain and emotional distress because they are unable to perform activities that they once use to do.

Proving Liability for Fracture Injuries in Washington

Injured victims need to prove who was responsible for the crash to hold that person liable for the damages suffered. This process can be made easier when the at-fault driver is cited for the crash by the authorities. Drivers cited for speeding, running a red light, driving drunk or making an unsafe lane change, for example, may be held liable for their actions. A driver does not, however, have to face criminal charges or be cited by the authorities to be held civilly liable for the crash. Proving fault and liability in these cases can be tricky.
