Our law firm has handled a lot of vertebrae fractures in car, motorcycle, and truck accident cases over the last 20 years. A vertebrae fracture can be a serious, significant, and permanent injury to the musculoskeletal system. You wouldn’t wish this fracture on anyone.
What is the Settlement Value of a Vertebrae Fracture Case?
One study found that the national median award at trial in personal injury cases for a vertebra fracture is $112,537. The median award for multiple vertebrae fractures is almost double the single vertebra amount, $207,000.
This is far lower than our law firm’s average settlement in vertebrae fracture cases. Why? There could be some jurisdictional differences. Because this is not Maryland data, but national data. The pool for these statistics may also include hairline fractures. When I’m talking vertebrae fracture claims, I’m not talking about hairline fractures.
