Bone Injuries Are Common After An Accident

An extremely common injury, regardless of the type of accident, is a bone injury. The most common type of bone injury is a fracture or a broken bone. Bone injuries are often the result of accidents such as car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, assault, falls and animal attacks. Injuries involving any type of bone can be minor or very severe depending on what bone was broken, the type of break, the age and overall health of the victim.

Types Of Bone Injuries

A bone injury more often than not involves the bone breaking or fracturing. There are different types of bone fractures such as:

Open Fracture: This involves the bone protruding through the skin and is a very severe bone injury

Closed Fracture: This occurs when the bone breaks but the fractured bone remains underneath the skin

Hairline Fracture: A fracture without separation of the bone fragments, a break with a very thin line

Commonly Broken Bones

  • Femur Fractures
  • Clavicle Fractures
  • Skull Fractures
  • Humerus Fractures
  • Radius/Ulna Fractures
  • Tibia/Fibula Fractures
