The answer to your question depends on many factors, and I recommend you schedule a free consultation with a Falls Church car accident lawyer to discuss your situation before you decide to accept the insurance company’s offer. Although some fractures sustained in a car accident can be treated relatively quickly and healed completely, other fractures can require months to heal or cause long-term issues.
If your broken bones have already healed, your doctor does not believe you’ll require further treatment, and you have no ongoing complications from the fractures, then you may be able to calculate your total medical expenses and compare that to the insurance company’s offer. However, by working with an experienced personal injury attorney, you’ll have a better idea of what your case is worth and if you are getting a fair deal. Keep in mind that you may be due compensation for future medical costs, pain and suffering, and your time away from work during recovery.
