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:

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

Commonly Broken Bones

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

Recovering From a Bone Injury

Recovery time following a bone injury can take anywhere from several weeks or many months. If a major bone such as the femur, or thigh bone, was broken it will take substantially longer than if you break your pinky finger. Recuperating from a bone injury can strain your life on many levels such as physical, emotional, psychological and financial. The financial strain may come from mounting medical bills, therapy bills, surgical costs, medication costs and lost wages. Getting your life together after a suffering a bone injury can take its toll on you.
