San Diego Traffic Accident Injury: Broken Bones (Part A)

Broken bones, also called fractures, are one of the most common injuries that can result from a San Diego traffic accident. If you or someone you love has suffered a broken bone or any other injury in a crash that resulted from another driver's negligent or careless failure to adhere to the rules of the road, contact a team of San Diego accident lawyers who can help you determine liability and who can explain your options for pursuing financial compensation for your injuries.

Broken Bones Are Common in a San Diego Traffic Accident

When a bone has more pressure or force placed on it than it can withstand, it will - as most other things would - break under the strain. Acute, sudden blunt force trauma can be responsible for breaks as well as slow, progressive and chronic strain (usually called "stress fractures").

Broken bone injuries can range from less serious hairline fractures to compound or open fractures that may entail multiple breaks or become exposed through the surface of the skin.

The force of a car accident can easily break or shatter a bone
, so if you suspect you have sustained one in a crash, it is vital that you keep the area of the break as still as possible to prevent further injury and immediately contact emergency medical services. Though common, broken bones and the injuries and risks that accompany them can be serious and should be treated as soon as possible.
