At times, a broken bone may need long-term care, and may result in an unchanging and irreparable disability. Broken bones are categorized into various types but are all considered fractures. Whether your break is determined to be a hairline fracture(a thin crack in the bone) or a complete fracture (broken into two or more pieces) all broken bone injuries are technically fractures.
The following is an inexhaustive list of common fractures for which you may receive compensation;
Transverse and Oblique Fracture- A transverse fracture is a complete break and proceeds fully across the bone at a straight, right angle. An oblique fracture is similar, except that the break proceeds diagonally through the bone.
Compound Fracture- With a compound fracture, the bone has been broken in multiple places. This type of fracture becomes even more complicated when it happens in the area of a joint. The joint could consequently become destabilized. To stabilize the fracture, pins, plates, or both may need to be used.
Spiral Fracture- Also known as a torsion fracture, a break of this sort occurs when the limb has been twisted, much like a wet rag might be twisted, and as a result, it is broken. A spiral fracture could easily happen to a child on a bicycle or a person in a motorcycle accident when a leg or arm of the individual is twisted as the rider falls.
Compression Fracture- This sort of break is common in a car accident. With this type of fracture, the bone has been compressed and crushed. Often in a car accident, individuals instinctively extend their arms out in front of them in an attempt to protect their body and stop it from projecting forward. However, the inertia from the accident may be so powerful that bones are not only broken but also compressed and crushed.
Treatments will vary based on the type of fracture and severity of the injury. This is especially true when we include whether the break happened around a joint or whether multiple breaks happened in different areas of the body. At times, a cast or a brace might be enough to create stabilization. In cases where the joint is compromised and destabilized, pins or external fixations might be necessary. It is also possible that the bone could penetrate through the skin during the break. Intense antibiotic treatment could be essential to ensure that no infections occur.
All of these possibilities equate to added pain, cost, lost time and trouble.
That is where we come in.
