You Might Be Able to Recoup the Cost of Treating Your Broken Bones
Medical care for broken bones can add up fast. According to the Mayo Clinic, a broken bone injury might require the following diagnostic procedures, tests, and treatment:
- Physical exams
- Emergency room care
- X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs
- Bone-setting, splinting, and casting
- Readjusting bones to their natural and correct setting
- Complete immobilization
- Over-the-counter and prescription medications
- Physical therapy
The treatments you require might vary according to the severity of your injury and the type of fracture you endured. Because a broken bone can happen in a myriad of ways, you might also sustain different types of fractures, each of which might require different yet costly treatments. Broken bones might involve:
- Compound fractures: The broken bone pierces the skin.
- Closed fractures: The bone is broken with the skin intact.
- Complete fractures: The bone snaps into multiple parts.
- Displaced fractures: Bone fragments are not aligned properly.
- Greenstick fractures: The bone cracks, but it does not fully separate.
Your health care team can help you understand the type of fracture you have and what kind of treatments you need to heal completely. Our team may help you understand what types of compensation you might be entitled to collect, and we may help you calculate your total losses.
You May Recover Other Costs Related to Your Broken Bones
The cost of treating broken bones can extend beyond medical care and might include additional expenses for casts, crutches, canes, wheelchairs, and a variety of other assistive medical devices.

- Current and future loss of earnings
- In-home medical care and assistance

You may also be compensated for non-economic damages, which are losses that do not have a financial value. They may be related to physical and emotional losses, such as:
