Hands, wrists, skulls, joints, knees, arms, necks, backs, femurs, tibias,
fibulas, noses, jaws, eye sockets, and many more human bones are easily
broken when the human body encounters sudden and violent impacts.
Experienced Newburgh personal injury attorneys know that these injuries frequently occur when someone negligently causes
a motor vehicle accident.
The initial break will cause immense pain and suffering. But the pain does

broken bones may require more treatment than having a cast applied to the injury. Some
broken bones require surgical repair that involves the insertion of plates,
screws and pins. Physical rehabilitation is frequently needed as well

the injury, but they also document the extent of the injury, providing
a valuable image for jurors. Medical records not only bring the injury
to life for the jury, they also help “value” the injury. Again,
this is because such records document the extent and severity of the victim’s injury.
Physical rehabilitation records are typically very detailed and they will
document the victim’s struggles as he or she re-learned how to re-use
a broken limb. The doctors and therapists who treated the victim will
also testify as to the extent of the patient’s injury and rehabilitation.
This evidence and testimony, along with additional items will all be used
to prove guilt and to supply the jury with a value for damages. Many car
accident cases lead to six figure settlements and awards. It is also not
uncommon for juries to award broken bone victims awards in excess of a
