Have you suffered an injury to the leg, foot, or knee? Call the Dallas injury attorneys at Montgomery Law.
Injuries to the leg are often serious due to the potential for permanent disabilities or long-term pain and suffering. A severe leg injury can even hamper your ability to earn a living, but our attorneys will make sure you’re compensated for all of your related losses.
It’s easy to understand how an injury to the leg can have an enormous effect on your quality of life. In addition to the pain you’re likely experiencing, a leg injury could dramatically alter your life and have a profound impact on your overall mobility. If the injury is serious enough, it could even prevent you from returning to work in your career field.
If you’ve suffered an injury to the leg, knee, hip, ankle, and/or foot due to the negligence of another, it is imperative that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible to learn the legal options available to you. Not only can our Dallas personal injury attorneys answer your questions for no cost, but we never charge a fee unless (and until) we win your case.
At Montgomery Law, our job is to make sure you’re adequately compensated for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and any additional related losses. By hiring a lawyer to navigate the complexities inherent to such cases, you can focus on recovering from your injuries while we handle the entire claims process with your best interests at heart.
Types of Foot and Leg Injuries
Injuries to the legs, feet or hips can occur in a variety of ways and will vary in terms of severity. That being said, the majority of leg injuries are broken bones, sprains, or strains (particularly involving the ankle), but also include:
- Dislocated knees, hips, or ankles.
- Twisted, ruptured, or hyperextended ligaments and tendons.
- Muscle tears, such as a hamstring injury.
- Compound fractures
Serious fractures to the tibia or femur are particularly troublesome given the potential for surgeries that may require pins and rods to be installed, months or years of rehabilitation, and potential permanent limps or loss of function.
Amputations are the most-catastrophic result of serious leg injury in that they can result in phantom pain, and permanently affect one’s quality of life and earning potential.
If you’ve suffered an injury that requires medical care while on the job, in a car accident, due to a premises defect, or someone else’s negligence, our attorneys can ensure that you have the best chance at getting every penny of compensation that you and your family deserve.
What’s the Value of My Case?
Because each injury is unique, it is virtually impossible to put a value to any claim before you have a full understanding of your total damages. Generally, the three biggest factors to consider are:
- The severity of the injury and extent of your pain and suffering.
- The total cost of treatment (including expected future care).
- How the injury affects the individual moving forward.
Personal injury claims (and lawsuits) are meant to compensate the victim for 100 percent of their related damages or losses. Some types of damages (e.g., medical bills and lost wages) are somewhat easy to assess; however, pain and suffering is a more-subjective measure and depends on the circumstances of the case and how the injury will impact the plaintiff’s life.
For example, if the victim was an active person who participated in sports and outdoor activities but is unable to do so anymore because of the injury, this reduction in their quality of life will undoubtedly result in a higher award by the jury.
Further, if the injury prevents — either temporarily or permanently — the plaintiff from returning to work and making a living, the defendant may also be liable for the victim’s diminished ability to earn income. This alone can be worth quite a lot as it seeks to compensate the victim for any expected loss of future income (sometimes up to the age of retirement).
Employing the services of a knowledgeable, skilled, and caring attorney will go a long way toward ensuring that you get every penny you deserve for your injury, but it’s also important to be realistic about your claim and potential settlement.
