Understanding the Different Types of Bone Fractures
Healthline explains that a broken bone and a fractured bone refer to the same thing. When a bone cannot handle the force of impact, it may break. Bone breaks range in severity. For instance, some minor fractures heal by themselves. However, compound fractures (when a broken bone penetrates the surface of the skin) require immediate medical attention.
Some types of bone breaks and fractures include:
- Stable fractures. This type of injury occurs when there is a break in the continuity of the bone, but the ends of the bone line up.
- Transverse fractures. This happens when the break in the bone is horizontal.
- Comminuted fractures. The bone shatters into several pieces.
- Oblique fracture. The break in the bone is at an angle.
Medical care is important following any type of car accident-related injury. It is best not to wait to see if a bone break or fracture heals on its own. By doing so, you risk further injury and the necessity of more advanced medical intervention.
Additionally, you will need medical documentation to support a personal injury case. Your x-rays, lab tests, casts, and medications could prove that you were injured by another driver.
You can call Bader Scott Injury Lawyers to gain further insight into your situation.

Potential Causes of Your Marietta Motor Vehicle Accident
To establish fault, liability, and causation, your lawyer will need to prove how your collision happened. They may be able to make this determination by reviewing traffic camera footage, consulting with eyewitnesses, and reading the police report. They may also be able to look into the other motorist’s driving history to check for any previous traffic infractions. This could provide useful information as to whether the other driver had a history of negligent driving practices.
Some causes of your car accident may include:
Tailgating is a common cause of rear-end collisions. By following too closely, drivers give themselves less braking distance. Upon impact, the front driver may extend their arms in an effort to cushion the blow. Ultimately, this can lead to broken bones and fractures.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) highlights how dangerous speeding can be, as speeding led to more than 9,000 deaths on the roads in 2018. When a speeding vehicle collides with another object, the force of impact can be fatal. Many modern cars are equipped with devices that record and measure the vehicle’s speed. Your lawyer may be able to access this data to learn whether or not your accident was caused by speeding.
Drunk driving is prohibited in the state of Georgia, according to the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety. If your accident was caused by an intoxicated driver, you may still be able to pursue compensation even if they face criminal charges. Additionally, the outcome of their case has no bearing on your claim’s success. Even if the charges against them are dropped or dismissed, you can still seek financial recovery.
Distracted driving is dangerous. When someone makes the decision to take their hands, eyes, or mind off the wheel, they put themselves and everyone around them in danger.
There could be other causes of your car accident other than those listed above. If so, do not worry. A Marietta broken bones and fractures lawyer may be able to help you. Call Bader Scott Injury Lawyers at (404) 888-8888 to start exploring your legal options.
