How Bone Fractures Are Sustained

Bone fractures often occur due to negligence, recklessness, or malice from another party. In many scenarios, an individual or corporation fails to uphold their duty of care, putting others at risk. For instance, property owners who neglect to maintain a safe environment may inadvertently create hazards that can lead to slips, trips, or falls - all common causes of bone fractures.

Similarly, reckless behavior, such as distracted or impaired driving, can result in serious accidents with catastrophic outcomes, including broken bones. In more extreme cases, bone fractures may arise from intentional acts of violence or malice, such as assault.

Types of Bone Fractures

Broken bones can vary significantly in severity and type. Understanding the specific type of fracture is crucial in assessing the potential long-term implications, treatment options, and estimated recovery time of your injury.

Listed below are some of the most common types of bone fractures:

  • Simple Fracture: Also known as a closed fracture, this occurs when the bone breaks but does not pierce the skin.
  • Compound Fracture: In a compound fracture, also known as an open fracture, the bone breaks and punctures through the skin. This type of fracture is severe because it may lead to infection.
  • Stress Fractures: These tiny cracks in the bone typically develop from overuse or repetitive activity over time.
  • Greenstick Fracture: This type of fracture, often seen in children, occurs when the bone bends and cracks but doesn't break completely.
  • Comminuted Fracture: This is a fracture in which the bone breaks into several pieces.
  • Transverse Fracture: This fracture has a horizontal fracture line, commonly seen in long bones like the femur.
  • Oblique Fracture: This fracture has an angled pattern and is typically the result of a sharp-angled blow to the bone.
  • Spiral Fracture: This occurs when a twisting force causes the bone to break in a spiral pattern.
  • Impacted Fracture: Also known as a buckle fracture, this occurs when the ends of the bone are driven into each other, commonly seen in arm injuries in children.
  • Avulsion Fracture: In this type of fracture, a fragment of bone tears away from the main mass of bone due to physical trauma.

Recognizing the type of fracture can help determine the most appropriate legal course of action, as it can indicate the level of force involved in the injury, hinting at the severity of negligence or intent in personal injury cases. Different fractures also have different associated recovery costs and timelines, meaning that the type of injury you sustain could impact how much compensation you can be awarded.

Types of Compensation Available in Cases Involving Broken Bones

Victims of broken bone injuries may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate the financial burdens associated with their injury. The specifics can vary from case to case, but there are general categories that tend to apply in these cases.

Common damages awarded in broken bones cases include:

  • Medical Expenses: These include costs for immediate medical treatment, ongoing care, rehabilitation, physical therapy, and any necessary medical devices or modifications to the home.
  • Lost Wages: If your injury causes you to miss work or impacts your ability to work in the future, you may be able to recover compensation for lost wages and loss of earning capacity.
  • Pain and Suffering: You may be entitled to compensation for physical pain and emotional suffering endured as a result of your injury.
  • Punitive Damages: If the party responsible for your injury acted with malice, fraud, or intentional misconduct, Georgia law allows for punitive damages to be awarded. These are not meant to compensate for a loss but rather to punish the responsible party and deter similar actions in the future. Most of this compensation goes to the state of Georgia if awarded.

The exact amount and type of compensation awarded can vary significantly based on your case's specifics. Our team can help you understand all the potential avenues for recovery in your case and help you pursue them aggressively.
