The bones of the human body are incredibly strong. However the human skeleton cannot withstand the violent impact of a car collision. Broken bones are one of the most common types of injuries in wrecks involving trucks, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians.

If you sustained a bone fracture during your crash, we will fight to help you recover the maximum possible damages.
Practically every bone in the body is vulnerable to fracture during a vehicle collision. The most common bones to break are those of the face, clavicle, arms, wrists, fingers, ribs, pelvis, legs, knees, and ankles which may be injured in a number of ways including:
The type of treatment you receive for a broken bone depends upon the type, severity, and location of the break. Prompt, quality medical treatment is crucial to recovery.
A vertebral fracture exposes the underlying spinal cord nerves to permanent damage. Severely broken cervical vertebrae may lead to tetraplegia and a break to the lumbar vertebrae may cause paraplegia. To minimize the risk of paralysis, a patient with a vertebra fracture is often immobilized during the healing process and may have to undergo invasive surgery followed by intensive rehabilitation.
A comminuted fracture, in which the bone splinters in multiple pieces, is difficult to treat. Typical immobilization devices, such as casts and splints are insufficient. Instead, patients generally must endure open surgery to repair the bone with metal screws and plates.
A compound fracture, in which the bone protrudes through the skin, also requires surgery and implantation of metal devices. In addition, this type of break causes an open wound that may expose a patient to infection.
