How Our Chattanooga Broken Bone Lawyers Can Fight for You
At The Davis Firm, LLC, we understand that each bone fracture case is different, so we give our clients the individualized attention that they deserve. When you’ve been hurt in an accident, the clock immediately starts ticking on your case. We will immediately begin an investigation into the cause of the accident and will collect and preserve evidence that supports your personal injury claim.
It may also be necessary to consult with experts to reconstruct the accident and demonstrate how your injuries occurred. A medical expert may also need to explain to the insurance company or a judge and jury how your bone fracture injury has impacted your life and your livelihood.
Because Attorney Davis worked as an insurance defense litigator for 15 years, he knows the tactics that insurance companies may use to delay your case, shift blame onto you, and work to minimize your payout or deny your claim altogether. With his extensive experience and perspective from the other side, he can craft a legal strategy that will counter these tactics and go after the maximum compensation possible.
Compensation for Broken Bone Injuries in Serious Accidents
If you’ve been hurt in an accident in Tennessee or Georgia, the person who caused the accident should be held accountable for the harm they’ve caused. They owe you full and fair compensation for the harm you’ve suffered, especially in the case of broken or fractured bones.
This compensation should be enough to cover your medical bills and any physical therapy and other treatments that your doctor recommends. Compensation should also include expenses for counseling, including pain and suffering, anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. These emotional and mental consequences are a common result of serious personal injury accidents and should be taken into account.
You may also be entitled to compensation for time away from work, even if you were able to take paid sick leave. Pain and suffering damages are another important component of compensation for broken bones suffered in an accident.
The costs associated with treating bone fractures can be significant, especially if you’re unable to work because of your injuries. That’s why it is crucial to hire an experienced attorney to fight for you.

Treatment for Fractures and Broken Bones
The first thing that your doctor will likely do if they suspect that you’ve suffered a broken or fractured bone is to perform an x-ray, CT scan, or MRI. This will help them identify the location and severity of the broken bone.
Because a broken bone can knit itself back together, your doctor’s focus will be on lining up the bones to promote proper healing. Depending on the location and severity of the injury, treatment will often include:
- Splints – To prevent movement of the limb
- Braces – To support the bone while it is healing
- Casts – To immobilize the bone and provide support
- Traction – For more severe injuries, to prevent movement and provide support
- Metal plates or rods – A surgical procedure to help assist with the repair and healing of the bone
