Fracturing or breaking a bone is an extremely painful injury to suffer and if you have fractured or broken a bone in an accident which wasn’t your fault you maybe able to make a fracture compensation claim.
Fractures can cause temporary mobility problems and make every day tasks hard to accomplish. Any break in a bone is referred to as a fracture, and it is possible to fracture any bone in the body. The most common bones to fracture however are those in the arms, legs, hands and feet. It goes without saying that some fractured bones can cause serious problems for your health. A fractured skull for example is a life threatening condition. Meanwhile, fractures to the major joints such as the knee or elbow can lead to osteoarthritis in the future. This debilitating condition affects the sufferers’ quality of life.

All fractures and broken bones require medical attention, with the average recovery time being a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks. This can result in a significant period of time off work and can lead to financial problems. If the fracture resulted from an accident that was not your fault then broken bone compensation may be available through a fracture claims solicitor. The list of accidents that can cause fractures and broken bones is endless, with the most common being road traffic accidents, slips and falls, accidents at work and sporting accidents.
There are many different types of bone fractures, some of which we will look at in more detail below:
- Single fracture – Single break in the bone
- Compound/open fracture – Where the bone has pierced through the skin
- Avulsion fracture – Where a small piece of bone breaks off from the main bone
- Complete fracture – The bone is split into two completely separate pieces
- Longitudinal fracture – The break runs down the length of the bone rather than across it
- Comminuted fracture – The bone is completely shattered
This list is by no means exhaustive as there are many different types of bone fractures.
