Broken bone cases are often much simpler than other types of personal injury claims because of the indisputable nature of the injury. For example, the legal process typically does not have to include an expert medical witness to prove that the injuries exist, while a case involving a soft tissue injury might. It is easy to see a bone fracture in black and white on a medical X-ray. X-rays are often all it takes to prove the existence of an injury. Medical bills, pay stubs, and receipts can prove related economic losses. It is negotiating the non-economic damages that requires the help of a personal injury attorney.
In Maryland, you can recover financial awards for your non-economic losses, including the physical pain and emotional distress a broken bone has caused you. It is these types of losses that insurance companies often try to argue down or eliminate completely. The parties in a broken bone claim often disagree on the value of non-economic damages. It is up to the plaintiff’s attorney to evaluate the case, prove the credibility of the plaintiff, and convince the jury to offer the greatest possible amount in non-economic damages.
There are many factors that could impact your bone fracture lawsuit. Prior injuries or conditions, for example, could make it easier for the defense to argue contributory negligence. The defense attorney will evaluate the plaintiff’s hobbies, health, physical traits, and more in an effort to argue against a fair settlement or jury verdict. It’s important to fight back with an aggressive personal injury lawyer. The attorney you choose to represent you can make all the difference in how non-economic damage negotiations work in a bone fracture case. Clients choose us because we have an unparalleled record of success and a reputation for excellence.
