Types of Fractures
Fractures or breaks are an umbrella term, but there are different types of fractures that can occur as a result of a trucking accident.
Trucking accident victims can sustain complete fractures, or incomplete fractures. If a victim’s fracture causes the bone the break completely into pieces, it is considered a complete fracture. An incomplete fracture occurs when there is only a crack in the bone. Complete fractures are more serious than incomplete fractures.
Another type of fracture is a compound fracture. This occurs when the break results in a break in the skin or an open wound. Another the of fracture is a comminuted fracture. This type of fracture causes bones to break in more than two pieces. In some cases, there is complete shattering of the bone.
How Do Broken Bones Occur As a Result of Trucking Accidents?
Trucking accidents often cause sudden, significant impact. This impact can cause a bone or bones to shatter, crush, or otherwise break. Sometimes, trucks will ride over another vehicle, resulting in crush injuries. Severe whiplash can also cause vertebrae in the spine to fracture or break. What may seem like a minor collision can result in a serious break or fracture if the victim strikes a part of the car such as a dashboard or steering wheel.
Complications of Broken Bones or Fractures Caused by Trucking Accidents
Broken bones not only cause victim’s pain, but they can cause many other complications. Victims may require surgery, prolonged hospitalization, or may never be able to return to the job that they previously did, resulting in significant financial distress.
Additionally, physical complications of breaks or fractures caused by broken bones or fractures include infection, nerve damage, impaired mobility, chronic pain, compartment syndrome, or amputation if the break is severe enough and significantly damages surrounding tissue. These are just some of the many complications of broken bones or fractures caused by trucking accidents.
Even if victims make a full recovery, they still will face lofty medical bills as well as lost wages due to any time spent out of work. Fractures can also make bones more painful and have a higher risk of arthritis in the future. These are damages that are compensable under the law.
