Several types of broken bones can cause serious damage to the person that has been injured:
- A complete fracture cracks the bone into two separate pieces.
- A single fracture means that the bone is only cracked in one place.
- Other terms that describe broken bones are open / closed, or simple / multi-fragmentary.
- Obviously, broken bones can occur anywhere in the body, but are most severe when they involve the neck or back.
Since a broken bone injury often causes injuries that are internal or undetectable by the naked eye, a complete medical examination should be carried out on the injured person. X-rays of problem areas and further scans such as MRIs or CT-Scans may also be necessary. A Northern California broken bone injury attorney can recover significant funds in order to help cover these and other medical expenses.
