Broken bones are a common injury from an auto accident. This is a result of the extreme forces exerted on a driver or passengers in the car or truck. These types of breaks or fractures are generally more serious than fractures from falls or playing sports.
Broken bones sustained in an auto accident are also more likely to require more advanced treatments like surgery and extensive physical and mental therapy. Even after the medical and psychological treatments are completed, the auto accident victim who suffered the broken bones may be left with permanent loss of mobility, scars and emotional struggles.
The femur, sternum, pelvis and skull are all major bones of the human body and can be very serious broken bone injuries from car accidents. Breaks or fractures to these bones can result in significant alterations to an accident victim’s future quality of life.
Even breaks to smaller bones in the hands or wrists during an auto accident can be very serious and have future implications on mobility and the ability for an accident victim to perform in his or her career and daily life.
It’s very important to know how a broken bone suffered during an auto accident may impact every aspect of your future life before agreeing to settle an auto accident claim.
