Broken Bones - Types Of
At Phillips Law Group, our lawyers often represent clients who have suffered a fracture or broken bone in an auto accident; however, broken bones can occur in almost any type of accident. Whenever force is applied to a bone that is stronger than the bone itself, a fracture typically occurs.
If you or a loved one has suffered a broken or fractured bone caused by the actions or negligence of another person or entity, please do not hesitate to contact our firm to see how we may be able to help you seek justice for your injuries.

Broken Bone Causes
Bones are typically strong enough to withstand an impact; however when a strong enough force hits the body, there are times when bones are unable to endure the force. Under these circumstances, a broken or fractured bone is likely to result.
Some of the most common causes of broken bones include, but are not limited to, the following situations:
- Auto Accidents
- Motorcycle Crashes
- Boating Accidents
- Sports Injuries
- Bicycle Accidents
- On-the-Job Injuries
- Truck Accidents
Types of Bone Fractures
Most broken bones can be separated into four categories:
- Complete Fractures: When the bone snaps into two separate pieces.
- Incomplete Fractures: When the bone breaks, but not completely into two separate pieces.
- Open Fractures or Compound Fractures: When the bone breaks the skin.
- Simple Fracture: Can be a transverse, hairline, oblique, impacted or comminuted fracture.
The severity of a broken bone depends on the circumstances of the wreck; some fractures and broken bones are far more serious than others.
Broken bones account for some of the most frequent hospital visits in America. Approximately 6.3 million bone fractures happen each year across the nation.
The treatment of a broken bone also depends on the type of break that occurred and is often expensive.
If you suffered a broken bone due to no fault of your own, we believe that you deserve compensation for medical bills resulting from the injury, among other damages related to the accident. Complete the Free Case Review form to the right to see if we may be able to help.
