This is how a broken bones case typically proceeds. After an accident, you will immediately begin obtaining medical treatment for your broken bone fracture. You will typically give a statement to the police, and if you have already retained an attorney, you will have legal representation during that process. Your lawyer will obtain prompt payment for your medical bills, and will start preparing your case. Once your medical treatment is completed and your attorney has prepared a strong case, your attorney will submit a demand to the person who caused your injuries as well as their insurance company. If the person or their insurer pays your demand, you will settle your case, with the guidance and supervision of your attorney. If they refuse to pay your demand, your injury lawyer will file a lawsuit against them prove your case. Our dedicated lawyers are experts at preparing cases so that you have the best chance of winning your lawsuit.

How much you can get for broken bones depends on the extent of your injuries and any future loss of earning capacity. Also, in appropriate cases, you may be entitled to punitive damages against a person or company who acted willfully or maliciously in causing your injuries. Punitive damages are based on the net worth of the person or company that caused your injuries, and could potentially be in the millions of dollars in a broken bones case. In most cases, how much you can get for broken bones will directly correlate to the amount of your medical bills and will be based on a multiplier of your total medical bills. An experienced San Diego Broken Bones Lawyer can explain this formula in more detail and give you an idea of how much you may be entitled to receive, after meeting with you and discussing your case in detail.
