Dublin Broken Bone Injury Lawyer

Accidents and acts of intentional violence can result in a wide range of catastrophic injuries, including broken bones. Broken bones are also known as fractures, and they can occur anywhere in a person’s body. In many injury claims involving broken bones, the severity of the fracture will depend upon the type of bone break and where it has occurred. If somebody else’s negligence or wrongful act caused you to suffer a broken bone, you should not hesitate to get in touch with an attorney who can help you to file a claim for financial compensation. While many people sustain bone fractures, these injuries require medical care, and they can result in extensive costs and many missed workdays. Contact our experienced Dublin broken bone injury lawyer to learn more about filing a broken bone claim.

What is a Broken Bone in Dublin? 

Fractures can involve a crack, break, or shattering of a bone. According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), bones can be “completely fractured or partially fractured in any number of ways,” including “crosswise, lengthwise, and in multiple pieces.” There are a number of different types of fractures that can occur in various kinds of accidents in Ohio. The most common terms used to describe particular types of bone fractures, according to the AAOS, include the following:

  • Stable fractures, which are fractures where the “broken ends of the bone line up and are barely out of place”;
  • Open or compound fractures, which are bone breaks where “the skin may be pierced by the bone or by a blow that breaks the skin at the time of the fracture” (and may result in the bone actually being visible);
  • Transverse fractures, which are those where the bone has broken in a horizontal line;
  • Oblique fractures, which are those where the fracture line “has an angled pattern”; and
  • Comminuted fractures, which are often the most serious and difficult to repair because they involve a person’s bone shattering into multiple pieces.
