13 Types of Bone Fractures
Often, a fracture is viewed as a less severe injury. However, fractures can be just as devastating as a break and sometimes more painful. There are many different kinds of bone fractures that you might experience in an accident. Here are just a few:
- Hairline fractures
- Impacted fractures (two bones forced together)
- Cervical fractures
- Transverse, or straight, fractures
- Avulsion fractures (when ligaments pull off of the bone)
- Femur fractures
- Spinal fractures
- Comminuted fractures (a bone broken into many pieces)
- Hip fractures
- Skull fractures
- Spiral fractures
- Oblique, or diagonal, fractures
- Compression fractures, or crushed bones
As you can see, any one of these injuries is devastating. They may take weeks, months, or even years to heal fully. And, depending on what caused the fracture, there may be more injuries you need to recover from as well.
Common Causes of Bone Fractures
Many different scenarios can cause bone fractures. For instance, bone injuries from car accidents are common. One such injury is the impacted fracture. Impact fractures often happen to front-seat passengers during head-on collisions, causing the shin bones to break and push together. Compression fractures can occur when the car is crushed while the passengers are inside the vehicle.
But, car accidents aren’t the only place that fractures can happen. Bone fractures from workplace accidents can also be devastating. Depending on the workplace, a slip and fall or lack of signage may lead to hip fractures, skull fractures, and more.
In the end, any accident can cause a bone fracture. And often, fractures will happen in conjunction with other injuries. These injuries can mean a lengthy recovery, time lost from work, lost wages, and more.
