Los Angeles Broken Bone Injury Attorney

Broken Bone and Fracture Injury Claims

Broken bones, or fractures, are some of the most common injuries resulting from car, motorcycle, or trucking accidents. Sometimes broken or fractured bones heal quickly and relatively easily. At other times, however, a broken bone or fracture can result in years of physical and financial complications. In addition to pain from the injury, you may suffer from lost wages or reduced earning potential, steep medical bills, and other damages.

Regardless of how severe your injury seems at the time, it is wise to consult an experienced Los Angeles broken bone and fracture lawyer before you sign any settlement agreement with an insurance company. If your injury was caused by the negligence of another individual or party, you may be eligible for full financial compensation.

Contact us today to learn more about your options. Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation is here to help.

Common Types of Bone Fractures

Accidents involving cars, motorcycles, or trucks, are typically traumatic events resulting in severe bodily injury. Even a seemingly minor crash can result in a serious bone fracture.

Bone fractures are generally classified as:

  • Displaced: A displaced fracture occurs when the bone breaks into multiple pieces and moves out of alignment.
  • Non-Displaced: A non-displaced fracture involves a bone that breaks into multiple pieces but remains in alignment.
  • Open: An open fracture occurs when the bone breaks through the skin.
  • Closed: A closed fracture occurs when the bone does not break through the skin.

Within these classifications, there are several different types of bone fractures. Some of the most common types of broken bones associated with motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Comminuted Fractures: These occur when the bone breaks into many pieces (i.e., more than two separate pieces)
  • Compression Fractures: Most commonly affecting the vertebrae, these fractures involve the partial collapse of the bone
  • Transverse Fractures: Occurs when the break forms a right angle with the bone’s typical axis
  • Linear Fractures: Occurs when the break is in line (parallel to) the bone’s typical axis
  • Oblique Fractures: Describes a break that is diagonal or curved, forming a non-right angle with the bone’s typical axis
  • Spiral Fractures: These fractures occur when the bone twists at the point where it has broken

Some breaks have more serious implications than others, but all bone fractures require the attention of a qualified medical professional. If you suffered any type of broken bone or fracture in a wreck, be sure to see a doctor as soon as possible. In cases of medical emergencies, such as an open fracture where the bone has penetrated the skin, call 911.

Common Broken Bones In Motor Vehicle Accidents

Because of the force involved in motor vehicle accident, injury victims are often at risk of sustaining serious fractures and broken bones. Even a motorcyclist wearing the proper protective gear, such as a helmet and heavy clothing, can be relatively unprotected in an accident.

Some of the most common broken bones in a motor vehicle accident include:

  • Vertebral fractures
  • Compression fractures of the spine
  • Skull fractures
  • Broken ribs
  • Fractured femurs
  • Shoulder and collarbone fractures
  • Broken arms, legs, hands, wrists, fingers, and toes
  • Fractured hips
  • Broken kneecaps

Often, broken bones lead to other injuries. A broken rib can puncture a lung, a fractured arm may accompany torn ligaments in the surrounding area, and a skull fracture can lead to a traumatic brain injury. At Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation, we understand the relationships between these injuries, as well as the myriad ways in which they affect victims’ lives.
