Broken Bone and Bone Fracture Injuries
Broken bones or bone fractures are not only painful, they can take a very long time to heal. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to repair the injury, followed by extensive therapy and rehabilitation. In the most severe situations, a broken bone or fracture can result in permanent damage, continuous pain and serious medical complications.
While anyone can break a bone, people who are injured due to the negligence of others often suffer bone fractures. Many different kinds of accidents produce this type of serious injury, with some of the most common being:
- Head-On Collisions. Accidents involving head-on collisions produce a great deal of force. This means that even if the drivers and passengers are properly seat-belted, multiple fractures, particularly fractures of the lower extremities, can occur.
- Pedestrian Accidents. When a pedestrian is hit by a car, the pedestrian is very likely to sustain fractures of the lower extremities, such as a broken leg.
- Premises Liability Accidents. Cases involving slip and falls usually result in wrist and arm fractures. Broken hips are also very common when the accident victim is elderly.
- T-Bone Crashes. When a car, truck or other motor vehicle strikes another vehicle on the side (a T-Bone accident), fractures of the ribs, hips and shoulders commonly occur.
