Broken Bones

Broken BonesAs a Boston broken bones injury lawyer, Christopher Earley has extensive experience with this injury, and how it impacts people’s lives.

Broken bones are an extremely common injury following an accident. A surprising 6 million people will break a bone each year. A fracture is another word for a broken bone.

Many times broken bones result from a personal injury accident in which a person or company negligently caused someone to be injured. Usually the higher the impact during a car accident, or the harder the fall, can predict whether or not a broken bone will result. Of course, for some individuals such as the elderly, it does not take great force to cause a fracture to occur.

Broken bones can cause extensive hospital stays, huge medical bills, lost time from work, and diminished ability to engage in your usual daily activities. Even simple fractures can cause upheaval in a person’s life.

Types of Broken Bones

Stable fracture – The bone is broken but not out of place.

Compound fracture – The bone has penetrated the skin, making it more difficult to repair.

Transverse fracture – The bone is broken horizontally.

Oblique fracture – This type of fracture has an angled-appearing look.

Comminuted fracture – A very serious break in which the bone has been shattered into multiple pieces.

These fractures can occur to any part of the body, including:

Whether or not the fracture requires surgery will depend on the severity of the fracture. Sometimes closed reduction can be performed which is when the doctor is able to set the broken bone into place without the need for surgery.

For more serious breaks, open reduction internal fixation may be necessary. This is when the doctor must perform internal surgery to repair the fracture with plates and screws. This is a much more invasive and costly procedure, with an extensive recovery period.
