If you have been hurt in an accident resulting in broken bones, you likely have suffered significant pain, hardship, and expense.
If your accident was not your fault—or not entirely your fault—you may be able to get compensation for your injuries. When one person’s negligence results in an injury to another person, a personal injury lawsuit can help the victim get compensation.
