Our bones are very easily broken, and usually it is in an accident. Sometimes the accident is the victims own fault, but at other times someone else causes the problem. If this is your position, and the accident happened no more than three years ago, the South Cambridgeshire car accident solicitors from Accident Advice Helpline would be interested in talking to you about compensation.
In most human bodies there are 206 bones; this can vary by a couple either side for various reasons. Every one of them could potentially break at some point in your life. Whichever bone is fractured, if you were not at fault, then you may want to use the services of the South Cambridgeshire car accident solicitors from Accident Advice Helpline to help you in making a personal injury claim.
The South Cambridgeshire car accident solicitors explain the different fractures
The severity of breaks in bones can vary greatly, and there are times when they can not be fully repaired. Doctors use pins, plates and screws to hold them in place, but apart from that there is not a great deal more they can do. Not all breaks need these extreme measures though, as the majority will heal themselves with just a plaster cast to secure them, and some very minor ones will only have support bandages.
Some of the breaks doctors have to deal with are:
- Spiral fracture – a break winding round the bone
- Comminuted fracture – the bone is broken into pieces or shattered
- Simple fracture – where there is no break in the skin
- Bowing fracture – this is where the bone bends rather than breaks and usually occurs in children as their bones are softer
- Complete fracture – a clean break into two
- Compound fracture – the bone breaks through the skin
- Greenstick fracture – the bone only breaks on one side
Whatever bone you fracture in your body, as long as you were not the cause of the accident, you may be able to make a personal injury claim by using the South Cambridgeshire car accident solicitors from Accident Advice Helpline to help you.
