Information About Broken Bones
In most Tulsa auto accidents, fractured or broken bones are common injuries sustained by those involved. At The Edwards Law Firm, our lawyers have often represented clients who have suffered from this type of injury. Broken bones are not limited only to motor vehicle accidents, however. Fractured or broken bones can occur in almost any type of personal injury accident when an outside force is applied to a bone that is stronger than the bone itself.
If you or a loved one has suffered from a broken or fractured bone in an accident due to no fault of your own, we urge you to contact our attorneys to see how we may be able to help you recover losses incurred from the wreck. You may be eligible to pursue compensation for current and future medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, emotional anguish and other damages related to your condition.

Causes of Broken Bones
Sometimes, when a strong enough force hits the body, there are times when bones are unable to endure the impact. Under these circumstances, a broken or fractured bone is likely to result.
Broken or fractured bones can result from any of the following:
- Sports Injuries
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
If you have sustained a broken or fractured bone through the actions or negligence of another person or entity, we believe that you deserve both compassion and compensation for your losses. Do not hesitate to contact our attorneys to see how we may be able to help you with your claim.
Types of Bone Fractures
Broken bone injuries can be separated into four different categories; simple, compound or open, complete, and incomplete:
- Simple Fractures Can be transverse, comminuted, oblique, impacted or hairline
- Open or Compound Fractures The bone breaks the skin
- Complete Fractures The bone snaps into two separate pieces
- Incomplete Fractures The bone breaks, but not into two completely separate pieces
Treatment of a broken or fractured bone, as with any other type of personal injury, depends on the type of fracture that has occurred. The severity of the injury depends entirely on the cause of the accident. Some fractured or broken bones can be much more severe than others.
The treatment of any kind of bone fracture injury can become expensive. If you suffered a broken bone due to the actions of another, they should be held responsible for the expenses you incur for your condition.
