Accidents that Cause Broken Bones

Human bones are primarily made of collagen and a calcium derivative that makes them both hard and relatively lightweight. They’re strong enough to support the weight of the human body, but bones are not impervious to damage. A heavy blow can cause a bone crack or a closed, simple fracture. A particularly violent impact can even lead to an open, compound fracture, where the broken bone penetrates outward through the skin.

Car Accidents

Though a vehicle’s metal shell generally protects the body, the impact from a collision can result in various types of fractures. After a car accident, it’s common for a victim to suffer a fractured arm, leg, or broken wrist.

Motorcycle Collisions

Severe bodily injuries frequently occur to the victims of motorcycle crashes, including broken bones in the ankles, legs, and arms, as well as fractured ribs, collarbones, hips, and to the skull and spine.

Slip and Fall Incidents

When a person trips because of dangerous conditions on a property, there’s a strong instinct to try and break the fall. For this reason, many victims suffer shoulder fractures or a broken wrist from a slip and fall accident.

Workplace Accidents

There can be many hazards present in the work environment, especially in the fields of construction, industrial, transportation, and manufacturing. Depending on the type of workplace accident, an employee could suffer broken bones to the hand, wrist, arm, spinal vertebrae, and lower body.

Types of Broken Bones

Any violent impact can cause a bone fracture, and classified as a:

  • Closed or simple fracture – Smaller breaks that do not break the skin.
  • Open or compound fracture -Breaks that penetrate the skin.
  • Hairline fracture – A narrow crack in a bone.
  • Incomplete fracture – A significant crack that doesn’t completely break the bone.
  • Complete fracture -When the bone breaks into separate pieces.
  • Displaced fracture – Where the pieces of the broken bone move out of alignment.
  • Comminuted fracture – When the bone shatters into small pieces.
  • Compacted fracture – A break caused by bones being driven into each other.

Broken Bone Injury Liability

There’s an infinite number of factors that may contribute to an injury-causing accident, but these incidents share a common feature: They usually occur because someone was careless, which is known as negligence in the practice of law. A broken bones lawyer can describe in more detail, but you need to prove four essential elements to recover compensation:

  1. You need to show that the responsible party had a duty to exercise reasonable care, whether the activity was driving, managing property, or other acts;
  2. You must prove that the person or entity breached this legal duty through careless acts or omissions;
  3. You need to establish a causal link between the breach of duty and the accident in which you sustained a bone fracture, such that you wouldn’t have been hurt but for the breach; and,
  4. You must demonstrate that you suffered losses because of your injuries.

Broken Bone Injury Claims

In many negligence-based cases, including claims for broken bones, you’ll pursue your right to compensation by filing an insurance claim with the company that covers the responsible party. This task kicks off negotiations with the insurance company, which will review your claim and decide on payment. The amount will depend on many factors, including the location and severity of the injury.

Usually, the insurance company will make an offer for a lower amount than the value of your case. At times, a claims adjuster may even deny your claim entirely by asserting that you caused the accident. It’s critical to have a broken bones attorney on your side during negotiations to counter the false or baseless allegations of the insurer.

If the insurance company is unwilling to settle your claim for a reasonable amount, you may have to take the next step by filing a lawsuit in court. The process requires the high-level legal knowledge and litigation skills of a broken bone injury attorney. You put your rights at risk if you don’t have solid legal representation on your side.
