The human body has 206 bones by the time a person reaches adulthood with bone mass maturing around age 21. At birth a child has 270 bones but many fuse together as the child grows. A broken bone is a very common injury in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, slip and falls, animal attacks and workplace accidents.

All injury claims end in 1 of 3 ways: settlement, judgement or verdict. Settlements, aka settling out of court, account for 97% of all accident, injury and workers’ comp cases. Typically bone injury lawsuits will resolve once a favorable settlement is negotiated between your attorney and the liable parties insurance carrier.
In some cases a settlement cannot be reached and your case will go to the trial phase of litigation. In these cases both sides cases are heard and a jury chooses either the plaintiff (you or the accident victim) or the defendant (liable party, liable parties or their insurance carrier).
Some cases may end in a judgement if the liable party doesn’t have insurance and they are personally sued for the money based on income, assets, etc.
Certain factors come into play with bone injury lawsuits (and car accidents, work injury cases, medical negligence and premises liability claims). These factors are where the accident occurred. The benefits of a work injury differ from the benefits in a premises liability claim. The big difference is that a work injury claim does not allow for pain and suffering benefits as the main goal is to get you healthy enough to go back to work.
That aside common benefits in injury cases are lost wage compensation, medical care, coverage of prescription costs, property damage, loss of parental guidance, loss of consortium and diminished quality of life compensation.
In cases that ended in accidental death, aka wrongful death, funeral expense benefits, survival benefits and wrongful death benefits may be obtained.

Bone cancer is a very rare form of cancer that can originate in any bone in the body, but it most commonly affects the pelvis or the long bones in the arms and legs. Bone cancer is rare, making up less than 1 percent of all cancers. In fact, noncancerous bone tumors are much more common than cancerous ones. There are several types of bone cancers but they don’t include cancers that begin elsewhere in the body and spread (metastasize) to the bone. Rather, those cancers are named for where they began, such as breast cancer that has metastasized to the bone.
