- Bicycle accidents: this occurs when a bicyclist is hit by a car, and falls off their bike, sustaining broken bones.
- Truck accidents: because trucks are much larger than an average car, broken bones are very common to result from a car v. truck accident.
- Big rig accidents
- Construction accidents: construction work is considered one of the most dangerous workplace environments since workers are very likely to suffer broken bones when falling from great heights.
- Pedestrian accident
- Slip and fall accidents: broken bones at the wrists, legs, and shoulders are very common in a slip and fall accident.

Common Broken Bone Injuries
Broken bones and fractures fall into various categories with differing degrees of severity, recovery time, and prospects. The severity of the injury will primarily depend on the force of impact as well as the condition of the victim – elderly people are more prone to severe injuries as their bones are more brittle.
Regardless of which bone is broken, it’s important to have the correct diagnosis and get the appropriate treatment for your specific fracture. Without this, your bone may fail to heal properly, potentially causing long-term complications that necessitate additional surgical procedures to fix the issue. This is not only expensive but extremely frustrating for your overall recovery goals. Here are some of the most common types of broken bone injuries:
- Compound Fracture – This is a full bone break with separation of the bone fragments piercing the skin. These are particularly serious, often requiring surgery and carry the risk of deep bone infection.
- Compression Fracture – This is usually associated with the spine when one or more vertebrae collapse, compressing the spine and changing its shape.
- Displaced Fracture – This occurs when the broken bone moves from its original location so that the ends are no longer lined up or twists to a strange angle.
- Non-Displaced Fracture – This involves a broken bone that hasn’t moved out of place. These usually are easier to treat and all that is needed is to restrict motion long enough for the bone to join together.
- Simple Fracture – Simple fracture is a fracture where the bone breaks but doesn’t pierce/puncture the skin.
- Open Fracture – This occurs when the skin is pierced by a broken bone causing an open wound. These fractures require surgery to put the bone back into place.
- Closed Fracture – Unlike the bone fracture, there is no puncture or open wound. The bone is hidden in the soft tissue but no open wound in the skin.
- Greenstick Fracture – With the greenstick fracture, the bone is bent but the fracture doesn’t go all the way through the bone.
- Transverse Fracture – These are fractures with a horizontal fracture line (fracture is perpendicular to the shaft of the bone).
- Oblique Fracture – These are fractures with an angled pattern, running diagonally to a bone’s long axis.
- Linear Fracture – Linear fracture runs parallel to the bone’s long axis with no displacement.
- Spiral Fracture – Spiral fracture occurs in long bones like those in the arms or legs. A bone bends or gets twisted but doesn’t fracture entirely.
- Comminuted Fracture – This refers to a bone that is crushed into three or more pieces. Some high-impact falls or accidents cause this and it’s more common in older adults with brittle bones.
What happens if the broken bone is not treated properly?
It is very important to seek medical treatment immediately after an accident in order to treat the broken bones. Failure to treat the broken bones could result in other medical problems, such as:
- Nerve damage
- Blood clots
- Skin lacerations
- Internal bleeding
- Diminished range of motion
Recovering from a broken bone can range from weeks, two months, to even years. Oftentimes, treatments for broken bones require surgeries, and even a cast to make sure the bone is healing properly.

How can our broken bones injury attorneys help?
- During your free initial consultation, our qualified Los Angeles broken bones injury attorneys will listen to your case, explain your legal options, and fight on your behalf to obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries. Usually, there are a number of factors that determine the value of a broken bone insurance claim.
- One of the most important factors that determine the amount of compensation you could receive is the severity of your injuries and the severity of the accident. For example, if you were a pedestrian and were hit by a car, you most likely will suffer very severe injuries that need financial compensation for ongoing medical care.
- If you weren’t the one responsible for your broken bone injury, then you shouldn’t be left paying the medical bills and carrying the burden that comes with it all by yourself. Speaking to any of our personal injury attorneys can help you determine how to file the lawsuit, who to file the lawsuit against, and the potential value of your claim. We handle our injury cases on a contingency basis, which means you don’t pay anything until we win the case.
- After hearing your claim, we then look into the circumstances of the situation and determine who the negligent at-fault party could be, and how they feel to act within that standard of care.
