DE Broken Bone Injury Attorneys

Bones make up the human skeleton. They provide the basic structure and support system for the human body. In any type of accident a common injury can be a bone injury. A very common bone injury is a fracture or a broken bone. Bone injuries can be the result of many types of accidents such as car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bike accidents and workplace accidents. Bone injuries can be sustained in varying degrees. What ultimately determines the extent of a skeletal bone injury are factors such as what bone was broken, the type of break, the age and overall health of the victim.

Types Of Bone Injuries Seen In Auto And Workplace Accidents

Injuries to bones typically involve the bone breaking or fracturing. There are several types of bone fractures and injuries including:

Open Fracture: This involves the bone protruding through the skin and is a very severe bone injury

Closed Fracture: A closed fracture occurs when the bone breaks but the fractured bone remains underneath the skin

Hairline Fracture: A fracture without separation of the bone fragments, a break with an extremely thin line. Hairline fractures may only be detected through x-rays tests.

Bone Dislocations: A bone injury involving 2 bones separating where they meet at a joint

After a bone injury the recovery process can take several weeks to many months. If a large bone such as the femur, or thigh bone, was broken it will take significantly longer than if you break your finger. Recovering from a bone injury can alter your life on many levels such as physical, emotional, psychological and financial.
