The amount of money you can receive from the insurance company for your pelvic injury will vary depending on the seriousness of your injury. For example, you will receive higher compensation if your pelvic injury was profound, involving multiple fractures or internal injuries. In addition, the amount of compensation will be directly related to the factors such as:
- Constant severe pain
- Leg instability
- Significant disability
- Ruptured bladder
- Hip replacement surgery
- Other internal organ injuries
- Femur and other leg bone fractures
If your pelvic fracture is unstable and your pelvis was disrupted, you should seek higher compensation for your injury. This is because you may have suffered damage to your bladder, rectum, and intestines. When you have a more severe injury, your pain and suffering as well as recovery time will be longer, so compensation should be higher.
Typically victims of Atlanta auto accidents recover for pain and suffering and financial losses, such as medical expenses, nursing care, travel expenses to and from the hospital, lost income, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and other expenses. Pelvic injuries are significant injuries and deserve serious attention, both medically and legally.
