Leg Injury Lawyer in Indiana
Defending Clients’ Rights & Interests
One of the most common types of injuries for accident victims to sustain in a slip and fall accident are injuries to the leg. This can include injuries to the knee, the ankle, the shin, and other parts of the leg. Although many people may minimize the possible outcomes of a slip and fall accident, far too many severe injuries are left unchecked, leaving the victim to suffer for far too long.
The severe twisting and turning that can happen in a slip and fall on ice in a parking lot or store often results in broken bones or torn tendons and ligaments. Commonly, Shaw Law sees broken fibulas and tibias in the lower leg (often confused with "ankle breaks" these are actually broken leg cases) and the torn meniscus in the knee.
"Rolling" your ankle in a slip and fall causes great stress upon the fibula bone and can snap it in a moment. These cases have high settlement values (if negligence can be proved) and you need to see our attorneys to get you the compensation you deserve.
As you consider the true cost of your leg injury, you need to evaluate all of the possible damages you have already sustained and are likely to incur in the future, including:
- Lost income
- Hospital stays
- Doctor's visits
- Medical equipment
- Emotional suffering
- Physical pain
- Out of pocket cost
How your ankle, knee or leg injury from a slip and fall accident in Indiana will impede your life, depends on several different factors, including the job you had prior to the accident, the severity of the break itself, the type of treatment recommended by your doctor, whether you sustained any complications as a result of the accident and your day-to-day responsibilities.
At Shaw Law, we work as hard as possible after you have sustained a serious leg injury from someone else's negligent behavior. Contact our legal team today to discuss how filing a case might be the only way for you to get your life moving forward again.
