Fractured Bones Claims by Serious Injury Lawyers

Bone fractures are one of the most common injuries sustained when an accident occurs, but this doesn’t mean that they are simple. Fractured bones can actually cause other injuries such as muscle tears and ligament damage and this can result in a significant amount of pain.

Serious fractures can have a devastating impact on the rest of your life, particularly if they cause long term damage as they can even stop you from working. Even a less severe fracture can result in time off work and a loss of earnings.

There are many different kinds of bone fractures. Below is a list of some of them and with any of them it is recommended that you seek regular medical attention throughout your recovery.

  • Avulsion Fracture – A small piece of bone has detached from the main bone.
  • Bowing Fracture – The bone has been bent rather than broken. This type of fracture tends to only affect children as their young bones are softer.
  • Closed Fracture – The fractured bone has not broken the skin around it.
  • Comminuted Fracture – The bone has been crushed or shattered.
  • Complete Fracture – The bone has been completely broken into two pieces.
  • Complicated Fracture – The fractured bone is situated close to another injured body part such as a nerve or blood vessel.
  • Compression Fracture – The bone has collapsed. This type of fracture will mainly affect the bones in the spine.
  • Fracture Dislocation – The fractured bone is part of a joint that has also become dislocated.
  • Greenstick Fracture – The bone has been fractured on one side only. Much like the Bowing Fracture, this type of fracture only tends to affect children.
  • Impacted Fracture – A fragment of the bone that has broken has been pushed into the other fragment rather than pull away from it.
  • Longitudinal Fracture – The break has occurred along the shaft of the bone.
  • Oblique Fracture – The fracture has occurred at a slanting angle along the bone.
  • Open Fraction – The bone has punctured the skin around it when it has broken, or the fracture has been caused by a wound.
  • Single Fracture – The bone has been broken but only in one place.
  • Spiral Fracture – The break winds around the bone.
  • Transverse Fracture – The break has occurred across the bone in a straight line.

Serious fractures can have a devastating impact on the rest of your life and they can even stop you from working. Even a less severe fracture can result in time off work and a loss of earnings.

If you have suffered from any kind of fracture because of an accident that wasn’t your fault then you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries. Call Express Solicitors today on 0161 904 4660 to discuss your claim for free.
