Injuries to bones in car accidents call for aggressive representation
Depending on the severity, fractures and broken bones can lead to a painful and long rehabilitation period, resulting in loss of wages and other potential financial setbacks. A broken femur, for example, can keep an accident victim off his or her feet for months. Even a less serious hairline fracture can still create hardships.

How fractures, broken bone accidents occur
Auto accidents, tractor trailer crashes and motorcycle wrecks are examples of accidents that, when severe enough, typically result in fractures and broken bones. Other types of personal injury accidents that result in broken bones and fractures include:
- Slip and falls
- Accidents in the workplace, such as a fall from a roof
- Bicycle accidents
- Injuries to children at playgrounds
Fractures or broken bones may involve any of the following:
- Bone breaking in two, known as a complete fracture
- Bone partially breaks, known as an incomplete fracture
- Bone tears through the skin, known as a compound or open fracture
- Hairline crack, known as a simple fracture
Broken bones and fractures can have a long-term effect on the injury victim:
- A victim may be unable to work for months at a time or even longer.
- A child’s development or growth may be affected.
- A bone may not heal properly, leading to additional medical procedures.
- The injury may require surgery or implantation of metal plates.
