Broken bone in Des Moines? We can help.
Many of us have suffered a broken bone at some point in our lives, and we understand the significant effect such an injury can have. Not only are there medical costs, pain and suffering, and other challenges, but a broken bone can interrupt our ability to work and function in daily life.

A seemingly simple broken wrist may prevent you from working on a computer, performing manual labor, or even doing basic chores around your home. It is easy to imagine the multitude of ways a broken bone can effect a person’s daily life. A fracture to a joint such as a hip or shoulder will likely prove even more problematic for people.

Legal issues following a broken bone injury:

From the legal standpoint, in some ways a broken bone injury case is more straightforward than other types of injuries. For example, a soft tissue injury, such as whiplash, can often be challenging to “prove” to a jury. The reason for that is that whiplash doesn’t typically show up on diagnostic testing such as x-rays, MRIs, or CT Scans thus jurors can’t “see” the injury. However, a broken bone is usually quite obvious on x-ray and a juror then has something objective to look at in regards to the injury.

Additionally, the existence of a broken bone, unlike many soft tissue injuries, is virtually impossible for an insurance company to dispute.

However, while the existence of the fracture itself is difficult to dispute, the insurance company will work hard to minimize the effect  the injury has on the victims life.

As always, it is important to have an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side to effectively show the insurance company and / or jurors just how your broken bone has negatively affected your life.
