Types of Fractures
A fracture is a broken bone. As stated by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), a bone may be fractured completely or partially in a number of ways, including lengthwise, crosswise, or in multiple pieces.
Common fracture types include:
- Stable fractures: Broken ends of the bone line up, barely out of place.
- Open compound fractures: The skin may be pierced by the bone or by the blow that caused the break. The bone may or may not be visible in the wound.
- Transverse fractures: A horizontal fracture line characterizes this type of fracture.
- Oblique fracture: This type of break has an angled pattern.
- Comminuted fracture: The bone is shattered into three or more pieces.
Common Causes of Fractures/Broken Bones
Many broken bones are caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of others. Examples include:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Acts of violence
Who Is Liable?
If your bones have been fractured in an accident that was someone else’s fault, the responsible party may be liable for your injuries. For example:
- If your bones were broken in a car crash caused by a negligent driver, you may have a claim for compensation against the at-fault driver.
- If your fractures were sustained in a slip and fall accident caused by a hazardous condition on someone else’s property, you may have a premises liability claim against the property owner.
- If an act of violence caused your broken bones, you may have a civil personal injury claim against the perpetrator, in addition to any criminal prosecution.
Depending on the severity of your injuries, damages in a personal injury claim for fractures may include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning potential
