Common Broken Bone Injuries

Broken bones are categorized into several different types of fractures. Below are the different categories that medical providers categorize broken bones as. This may be very helpful and important to know, especially when dealing with your broken bone injury lawsuit. The different types of fractures, and the severity of the fractures, determine the amount and compensation you could receive for your broken bone lawsuit.

  • 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.
