What Types of Fractures are Commonly Suffered in Car Accidents?

By Car Accident Help on November 28, 2012

Broken bones are some of the most common injuries sustained by victims of auto accidents in Oklahoma. Broken bone injuries or fractures often result in significant pain and require continued treatment and care including physical therapy, the cost of which can add up very quickly.

There are a number of different types of bone fractures. A displaced fracture is when the bone snaps into two or more parts and moves so that the ends are no longer lined up. In a non-displaced fracture, the bone cracks, but it does not move from its proper alignment. A closed fracture is when the bone breaks but there is no puncture of the skin. An open fracture is when the bone breaks through the skin.

When a child is involved in an Oklahoma car accident, he or she may suffer a greenstick fracture. This is when the bone bends but does not completely break due to their bones being softer than an adult’s. When a larger vehicle crushes a smaller vehicle, the victims may be at risk of suffering comminuted fractures. This is when a bone sustains so much trauma that it breaks into several pieces. A devastating collision may also result in an “impacted fracture,” which is when the ends of the bone are driven into each other.

When a broken bone injury occurs as the result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, injured victims can seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, surgery, treatment, physical therapy, and pain and suffering. The experienced Oklahoma City bone fracture accident attorneys at the Maples Law Firm help injured car accident victims get the compensation they need and rightfully deserve.
