Types of Broken Bone Claims We Can Help With
Depending on the circumstances of an accident, broken bones can vary in severity and ease of treatment. Our lawyers can create a personalized legal strategy to help you receive appropriate compensation for the following types of bone fractures:
- Simple fracture: Bone breaks or splits but remains in place and does not poke through the skin
- Compound fracture: Bone breaks and punctures the skin
- Compression fracture: Vertebrae break and collapse on one another, causing further damage
- Displacement fracture: Bone breaks, moves, and is situated at an unnatural angle
- Complete fracture: Bone breaks and completely disconnects
- Partial fracture: Bone breaks but remains partially connected
- Transverse fracture: Bone break runs perpendicular to the axis of the long bone
- Linear fracture: Bone break runs parallel to axis of long bone
- Oblique fracture: Bone break runs diagonal to direction of bone
- Spiral fracture: Bone break results in a portion of the bone twisting
- Comminuted fracture: Bone breaks in multiple places, effectively breaking up the bone into multiple parts
- Impacted fracture: Bone breaks into multiple pieces that push into one another and cause further damage
- Stable fracture: Broken ends of bones are almost perfectly lined up and have barely moved out of place, if at all
Some of these injuries, like compound and compression fractures, may require costly corrective surgery as part of the treatment process. Even the less severe injuries may require around 2 months to heal; depending on the location of your broken bone, you could be unable to work and fulfill other duties during this time.
