Types of Bone Fractures
A bone can suffer a fracture, or crack, in many different ways. Bone fractures can have different degrees of pain, as well as different treatments and prognoses, depending on the type of fracture. The type of break often depends on the force that caused it. Common accidents that result in broken bones include car accidents, slip and falls, struck-by objects, sports injuries, and acts of violence.
The following are a few of the most common types of bone fractures:
- Stable: These are the simplest types of fractures, in which the broken ends of the bone hardly fall out of place. Both ends of the broken bone align easily, and often do not require extensive treatment to mend.
- Transverse fracture: This is a horizontal fracture across the bone. An oblique fracture, on the other hand, has an angled pattern in the bone.
- Compound fracture: Compound, or open, fractures are those in which the broken bone penetrates the skin. These fractures may require surgery to mend.
- Comminuted fracture: When the bone breaks or shatters into three or more pieces from the force of impact. Badly comminuted bone breaks may require surgery.
Bone fractures can be extremely painful and debilitating injuries. Depending on the severity of the break, the victim may have to miss work for weeks or months. In the most serious cases, broken bones don’t heal the same, causing permanent disability. Broken bones qualify as serious injuries in the state of Florida, giving auto accident victims the right to file personal injury claims outside of the no-fault auto insurance system. Don’t hesitate to contact our Hollywood bone fracture lawyers if you broke a bone in a vehicle collision in Hollywood.
Recovery Opportunities for Bone Fractures
Bone fractures give victims an advantage in that they show up clearly on x-rays and medical scans. There is generally no disputing the presence of a broken bone. This is in contrast to soft tissue injuries that will not show up on x-ray images. In a broken bone case, both parties will likely agree on the amount of actual medical expenses, lost wages, and other out-of-pocket economic damages. The negotiations deal with non-economic damages, such as physical pain, emotional suffering, and mental anguish.
It is the plaintiff attorney’s job to prove the credibility and extent of the victim’s broken bone injury before a judge or jury. The skill of your attorney in and out of the courtroom can make a big difference in the amount of money you receive for your injuries. You need an experienced lawyer to help prove the loss of everyday enjoyment or quality of life because of your accident. The Hollywood bone fracture attorneys at Fischer Redavid PLLC have the special skills and abilities you need for strong legal representation.
