Any type of tibia fracture is serious, as the break in the bone can affect the leg’s stability, range of motion, and the knee joint. The tibial plateau is located on the upper portion of the tibia and is critical in weight-bearing. When a tibial plateau injury occurs, other injuries may also occur including knee injuries, soft tissue injuries, nerve injuries, and ligament injuries. Because of the risk for significant injuries, tibia fractures are considered serious and should result in a significant financial recovery.
Unfortunately, insurance companies will attempt to offer a low settlement offer to try and get away with paying the minimum payout for your medical bills. However, you may be entitled to compensation for all of your medical expenses, physical therapy, pain and suffering, lost income, and more. For this reason, a professional Sarasota accident attorney should be hired to represent you and obtain the maximum compensation. A knowledgeable lawyer will review your accident report, medical records, and change in lifestyle and income to determine what a fair settlement offer looks like.
