Broken and Fractured Bones


When your broken bones are caused by an accident that was due to the negligence of another party, it is important that you seek compensation for your damages. Unfortunately, insurance companies and defendants rarely make it easy to get the compensation you deserve. When broken bones are involved, medical treatment often requires emergency care, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery. These treatments are expensive, and no one wants to pay for them, even when they are at fault.

Types of Broken Bone Injuries

Broken bones come in a variety of forms. Not only are there a lot of different bones that can be broken, but there are many different types of fractures that can happen in an accident. If you suffer from a broken bone, it is important that your injuries are diagnosed correctly so that you can get the proper treatment for your specific injuries. Without the right treatment, your bones may not heal properly which can result in long-term complications and even disability. Some of the most common types of broken bone injuries include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Displaced Fractures – With this type of fracture, the bone is not just broken, but pieces of the bone separate from the main bone. In some situations, this type of fracture may need surgery to correct.
  • Non-Displaced Fractures – These fractures happen when the bones are broken, either entirely or partially, but the bones are aligned. This is one of the most common broken bone injuries.
  • Stable Fractures – This is one of the least severe types of broken bone injuries. With a stable fracture, the structure of the bone is still intact, which allows for faster healing and shorter recovery time.
  • Open Fractures – These fractures are often referred to as compound fractures. This is the type of bone fracture that occurs when the bone punctures the skin and creates an open wound. This is a very serious injury because there is an extremely high risk of infection.
  • Closed Fractures – When a bone fracture is referred to as closed, it is because the broken bone has not broken through the skin. While these injuries are considered less serious than open fractures, they can still lead to long-term or permanent damage.
  • Simple Fractures – A simple fracture is a broken bone that has little separation between the pieces of bone. This is a closed injury and is often easier to treat than a more complex fracture.
  • Greenstick Fractures – A greenstick fracture occurs when the victim’s bone bends, but does not break. This injury is especially common in young children.
  • Transverse Fractures – This is a type of simple fracture that happens at a right angle. It is a clean break and often heals well.
  • Oblique Fractures – These fractures typically have a curved angle or slant, which can lead to complications with healing. Immediate medical treatment and rehabilitative treatment are often critical for a full recovery.
  • Linear Fractures – This type of broken bone occurs most often in long bones, such as the legs and arms. It goes down the length of the bone and is notoriously painful for the injured person.
  • Spiral Fractures – These are bone fractures that happen in a twisting pattern that is also extremely painful for the victim. Most of these fractures happen when the injured person gets a hand or foot caught under or inside of something.
  • Comminuted Fractures – This is a very serious bone injury and occurs when fractures occur in multiple locations in one bone. This is often called bone-shattering.
