Common Types of Broken Bone Injuries in Car Crashes
Broken and fractured bones occur in a variety of forms. There are many different bones that can break in a car accident and many different ways in which bones might fracture or break. The different types of fractures vary in terms of severity, pain, treatment requirements, and the prospect of a full recovery. If you suffered a bone fracture or break in a car crash, it is vital to get the right kind of treatment for your specific injury. It helps to know about the different types of bone fractures that accident victims may experience.
Some of the more common types of bone fractures include the following:
- Stable fracture. The broken ends of a bone remain lined-up, barely out of place, and are likely to heal back together.
- Open or compound fracture. The skin is pierced by a bone or by the impact blow. The bones may be visible in the wound.
- Transverse fracture. The bone is fractured or broken in a horizontal line.
- Oblique fracture. The bone is fractured or broken at an angle.
- Comminuted fracture. A bone is shattered into three or more pieces.
Car accidents often lead to broken or fractured skulls, ribs, legs, arms, spines, or pelvis. These breaks and fractures can cause other life-threatening conditions such as internal bleeding, traumatic brain injury, paralysis, or spinal cord damage. If you have experienced a bone break or fracture in a car accident, speak with a dedicated Campbell crash lawyer at Solution Now Law Firm for help getting medical treatment and financial compensation.
Internal Injuries to Watch Out for After an Accident
Internal injuries can occur even in minor accidents. Car crashes involve massive, sudden impact with airbags, seats, car dashboards, as well as the street and other objects if a person leaves the vehicle. The intense impact can lead to internal organ damage and other serious injuries.
Internal injuries can be incredibly dangerous, especially because they might not be readily apparent right after an accident. If your internal organs were damaged, or if you are suffering from internal bleeding, you might not be able to see the damage directly or even feel the damage right away. You might not recognize the injury for what it is. For that reason, it is all the more important to get medical treatment as soon as possible after a car crash, even if you do not believe you need emergency treatment.
Some common internal injuries that car accident victims can experience include the following:
- Broken ribs
- Ruptured spleen
- Kidney damage
- Internal bleeding
- Pneumothorax (punctured lung)
- Abdominal aorta rupture
- Other organ damage
- Lung damage
- Brain bleeds
If you identify any of these injuries or experience symptoms of internal bleeding such as abdominal pain, cold feeling, lightheadedness, fatigue, pale complexion, or unusual thirst, see a doctor immediately. Internal injuries are dangerous and debilitating. The injury lawyers at Solution Now Law Firm will help you get the medical treatment you need for your internal damage and will help ensure that your medical expenses are appropriately compensated by the responsible parties.
