Broken Bone Injuries

Bone fractures can occur in serious car accidents and may leave victims debilitated for extended periods of time. Bone fractures have many different classifications depending on the location, severity and type. There are 206 bones in the human body, all of which are breakable. First, the bone fracture can be classified as either open or closed. Simply put, an open fracture involves an open wound and a closed fracture does not. Once that is determined, it can then be determined what the type of fracture is. These types can be sustained in virtually any anatomical region of the body. The most common types of bone fractures are:

  • Complete - In comparison to an incomplete fracture, a complete fracture is when the fragments of the bone are completely separated from each other.
  • Spiral - Oddly enough, it is possible for bones to twist. When at least part of the bone has been twisted the fracture can be classified as spiral.
  • Comminuted - These types of fractures occur when the bone shatters into a number of different pieces.
  • Impacted - Like it sounds, impacted fractures are classified by different bone fragments being forced into each other by a high level of trauma.

Broken bones sometimes need surgery to repair. You may need to have pins inserted into the fractured bone in order for the bones to grow back together properly, or you may simply just need a cast. Whatever the case, broken bones are serious and are cause for a personal injury claim if your car accident was caused, at least partially, by the negligence of another driver.
