Did You Suffer a Serious Fracture in an Accident?

If you have been in an accident in North Carolina, your first priority should be to seek medical care. You may only see bruises and scrapes, but there could be serious underlying issues.

The impact of a vehicle collision often causes damage to an occupant’s bones. In the event of a truck crash, the passenger car occupants will likely receive worse injuries, and in motorcycle accidents, where the rider has virtually no protection, the injuries almost always include compound fractures. Broken bones can worsen or become life-threatening if left untreated. Orthopedic surgeons and other specialists must often be called in to provide expert care to maximize recovery from bone injuries.

After seeing a medical professional, your next call should be to an experienced attorney. Rhine Law Firm, P.C., is one of the leading personal injury firms in North Carolina. Call (910) 772-9960 or toll-free (866) 772-9960 to schedule an initial consultation to discuss the merits of your case and your potential for securing financial compensation.

Types of Fractures

There are several terms you might hear from medical professionals as they assess your injuries after a vehicle crash:

  • Greenstick fracture is used for a bone that has been bent or cracked but not completely broken. These injuries are common in children as their bones are still flexible.
  • Stable break means that both ends of the broken bone are relatively close together and remain in alignment.
  • Compound break, also called an open fracture or compound fracture, is when one or more bones have pierced the skin. This injury presents greater potential for complications, as infection is a serious concern in addition to the break itself.
  • Comminuted break means that a bone is broken in multiple locations.
  • Impacted break is when the ends of a broken bone have been forced together. The impact could cause enough damage to the bone ends that surgery is required to realign the bone for proper healing.

In most cases, the damaged bone must be immobilized, set in the right spot, and allowed to heal over time. All bone injuries are serious and can have life-altering implications if not treated properly. After a traumatic accident, the cost of doctors, specialists, and therapy can become overwhelming, but your first concern should always be for your health.
