Broken Wrist Injury Attorney in Wisconsin
We take winning personallyFree case consultation
The most common cause of a broken wrist is landing hard on an outstretched hand during a fall. If your fall was the result of a someone else’s negligence (such as a failure to keep a sidewalk clear of snow and ice, or not mopping up a wet entryway in a building), you have every right to be compensated for the medical expenses you’ve incurred. Broken wrists are also common with car and motorcycle accidents.
Speaking of medical expenses, it’s important to get medical treatment after an accident that injures your hand or wrist. You may think it’s just a bad bruise and the pain will go away, but if there’s a fracture the bones may not heal properly and this could impact your ability to do anything involving the use of that hand.
When you've been seriously hurt in an accident, contact personal injury attorney Steve Caya immediately for a free case consultation - and fight for the compensation you deserve.
How much compensation do you get for a broken wrist?

Common causes of broken wrists and hands
- Sports injuries (especially bicycling, snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding)
- Automobile and motorcycle crashes
If your injured wrist was caused by someone else’s negligence in a motorcycle crash, you may be entitled to compensation.
In cases of sports injuries, you might think you have no one to blame for your broken wrist but yourself, but there may be others whose actions (or inaction) contributed to you falling. Attorney Caya and his associates are often able to identify those who can be held accountable.
Motorcycle accident wrist injuries are typically caused by the rider trying to break his or her fall after a collision. The most common motorcycle wrist injury is a scaphoid fracture (one of several small bones in the wrist). Because the scaphoid bone is near the thumb, motorcyclists suffering a broken scaphoid may experience a lack of grip, affecting their everyday life.
