What Compensation Can I Get for a Broken Bone Injury in a Lake Charles, LA?
Broken bones or bone fractures can be very painful and take a long time to heal. Because of this, you may have financial and non-financial damages, including income loss, during your recovery. Additionally, such an injury, and such an incident as a car accident, can be traumatic. As a result, you might have emotional and mental health damages, too.
You can receive compensation for all those kinds of damages. A Lake Charles car accident lawyer from our firm can help you identify all of your compensable damages and demand them from the other party’s insurance company. These damages could include:
- Your physical pain and suffering
- Disability while your broken bones heal
- Lost income and work benefits while you heal
- Loss in your ability to earn income
- Medical and rehabilitation bills, including bills for physical or occupational therapy
- Vehicle repair/replacement bills
- Emotional distress
- Loss of consortium
- Mental anguish
- Any other damages you want to claim
Many different accidents can result in broken bones, including side-impact, head-on, and rear-end wrecks. A Lake Charles rear-end accident lawyer can help if a driver struck you from behind and left you with serious injuries.

Who Compensates the Victim After a Car Accident in Lake Charles, LA?
In Louisiana, the at-fault party’s insurance company compensates car accident victims. So, as the victim in your case, you can file a personal injury claim against the other party’s insurance, and it should compensate you. Alternatively, you could file a lawsuit directly against the other party.
However, it could be challenging to identify the at-fault party in your case. For instance, if the other driver is an employee, the at-fault party may be the driver or the employer. Both parties could share fault. You might also have trouble holding an insurance company to account or persuading a judge to make a fair verdict.
For instance, an insurer may ignore some of your damages. We understand that liability may prove especially complicated in accidents involving Uber and Lyft drivers. A Lake Charles rideshare accident lawyer can help you review your legal options in this situation.
Help From a Broken Bones Lawyer in Lake Charles, LA
A lawyer from our firm can identify the at-fault party or parties for you and then prove their accountability for your damages. To identify the at-fault party or parties, we will seek out evidence to show they caused or contributed to your car accident. Such evidence could be traffic camera footage of the accident and/or event data recorder information from the other driver’s vehicle.
To prove accountability, your lawyer will show why the party or parties were irresponsible and how their reckless actions led to your damages.
