How To Get The Best Settlement From Broken Ankle Injuries
Record & preserve evidence of your broken ankle
Evidence is the most important aspect of determining liability. The other party’s insurance and legal team will do whatever they can to prove your fault.
Seek medical attention
Get medical treatment, even if you're not sure of the extent of your injury.
Hire a personal injury lawyer
The other party’s insurance team is going to fight to pay as little as they can. Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney like Steve Caya will help ensure no stone is left unturned to get you the settlement you deserve.
Document your expenses
Having a complete list of your financial losses due to your broken ankle is the best way to help your attorney determine the settlement you deserve.
Do not talk to the other party’s insurance company
After your claim is filed, the other party’s insurance will begin an investigation to determine liability. It is in their best interest to put any percentage of fault they can on the victim. They will use everything they can from your conversations to do so. Leave any contact with them to your experienced attorney.
Negotiate a settlement
Though difficult in some cases, it is important to remain patient and allow your lawyer to negotiate the best possible settlement. Insurance companies will do what they can to get you to quickly accept their first offer, even more so if you are experiencing financial hardships and need that money quickly. Steve Caya and his experienced team will fight for every dollar you deserve.
Broken ankle causes
Common causes of broken ankles:
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Car accidents
- Slip & Falls
- Boating Accidents
- Drunk driving
- Motorcycle accidents
Don't be fooled by the adrenaline rush immediately following a life-changing accident. You may not feel the pain for a few days, but taking action in those few days is crucial to securing the MAXIMUM settlement from the insurance company of the responsible party.
Motorcycle accident injuries result in broken ankle
Motorcycle ankle injuries most commonly occur as fractures, torn ligaments, or a combination. The powerful impact and twisting from a motorcycle wreck can result in traumatic damage to the foot, ankle and leg including severe swelling, serious bruises, sprains and even compound fractures.
In a side impact collision, a motorcycle rider’s ankles can be crushed by another vehicle or the bike itself if the ankle is pinned against the road. Ankle injuries can also be caused by motorcycle accidents without impact if another driver causes a biker to swerve suddenly and lose control of the motorcycle.
Because the anatomy of ankles is highly complex, professional medical attention is required to accurately diagnose and treat ankle injuries after a motorcycle accident. Equally important is consulting an experienced personal injury attorney familiar with motorcycle injury cases.
