I suffered a Colles fracture when a car pulled out in front of my bicycle and made me crash. How much money should the insurance company offer me to settle?
It is impossible to provide you with an exact estimate of what your claim is worth without thoroughly reviewing your case. However, it is important to note that your claim is most likely worth more than the insurance adjuster is offering you. This is because insurance adjusters are trained to try and settle cases for as little money as possible.
After a Colles fracture, you probably have your wrist and arm in a cast in order to immobilize the injury. Additionally, some Colles fractures require surgery that includes pins and screws to hold the bones together. The more complex the treatment, the more your case will be worth.
Any type of bicycle accident injury that causes pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages should be fully compensated. Furthermore, if a Colles fracture caused you to lose function, range of motion, or caused you permanent damage, you should be compensated appropriately. You may be eligible to receive damages for the following:
- Medical care
- Physical therapy
- Lost wages
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent damages
To make sure you receive a fair settlement from the insurance company after a bicycle accident, it is always wise to seek legal counsel. Are you ready to learn more? Use our live chat or online contact form to schedule a complimentary case evaluation. We are here to help you.
