What Types of Fractures are Commonly Suffered in Car Accidents?

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on November 28, 2012

Broken bones are some of the most common injuries sustained by victims of auto accidents. These injuries or fractures often result in significant pain and require continued treatment—which can be very expensive.

There are a number of different types of bone fractures that occur as the result of car accidents:

  • Displaced fracture: the bone snaps into two or more parts and moves so that the ends are no longer lined up.
  • Non-displaced fracture: the bone cracks, but it does not move from its proper alignment.
  • Closed fracture: the bone breaks but there is no puncture of the skin.
  • Open fracture: the bone breaks through the skin.
  • Greenstick fracture: a child’s bone bends but does not completely break due to their bones being softer than an adult’s.
  • Comminuted fractures: a bone sustains so much trauma that it breaks into several pieces.
  • Impacted fracture: the ends of the bone are driven into each other.

When a broken bone injury occurs as the result of someone else’s negligence, injured victims can seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, surgery, treatment, physical therapy, as well as pain and suffering.
