People need their hands and wrists to function correctly so that they can work, drive, type, write, cook, clean, and take care of themselves and others. When a broken wrist or hand prevents someone from working and functioning normally, negligent drivers should be held responsible for their actions.
Because wrist injuries are all different and can range from a wrist sprain to a complex wrist fracture that requires multiple surgeries, compensation for broken wrists ranges accordingly. The amount of money your claim will be worth will primarily depend on the seriousness of your injury. For example, did you suffer a loss of range of motion, nerve damage, deformity, permanent damages, or have a non-union? If you did, the amount of compensation for your wrist injury should be greater than if you suffered an injury that healed correctly.
In order for our Sarasota injury attorneys to tell you exactly how much your case should be worth, we would need to review your medical records and expenses, lost income, and be able to prove how this injury has impacted your quality of life for the worse.
Because wrists are complex, wrist injuries are often serious and deserve significant compensation for the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Impaired function
- Medical expenses
- Loss of income
