Injuries Covered in Broken Bone Accident Lawsuits

The severity of a fracture or break can be life-changing, resulting in short-term suffering or lifelong disability.

Some of the most common types of bone fractures and breaks for which victims seek compensation include:

Transverse Fractures: Transverse Fractures occur when a bone breaks at a 90-degree angle, often in car accidents when force is applied perpendicular to the bone’s direction.

Oblique Fractures: An oblique fracture is a curved break along the length of the bone, usually resulting from a sharp blow or sudden twisting along a limb.

Comminuted Fractures: These fractures involve a bone breaking into more than two pieces and are frequently seen in smaller bones, such as those in the hands and feet. They often occur in car accidents and slip-and-fall incidents when individuals instinctively reach out to catch themselves, leading to fractured wrists and digits.

Stress Fractures: Stress fractures are hairline fractures commonly occurring in individuals who handle heavy objects and perform repetitive work-related motions. Workers who do not take sufficient breaks, often due to employer directives, are at a higher risk of developing stress fractures.

Greenstick Fractures: Greenstick fractures happen when a bone bends after absorbing significant force, typically occurring in children with soft and underdeveloped bones. Fractures tend to occur on the side opposite the bend.

Examples of Negligence in Broken Bone Lawsuits

Falls, being struck by or against another force, and motor vehicle accidents are the top three leading causes of emergency department visits for Illinois residents with broken bones.

Slip-and-Fall Injuries:
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one-fifth of all falls result in serious injuries such as broken bones. Falls are the leading cause of hospitalizations for children aged 0-4 and adults over 25 in New York. Commonly broken bones in slip-and-fall injury cases in New York include those in the elbow, wrist, shoulder, hip, back, and spinal cord.

Property owners can be held liable for any dangerous conditions they caused or failed to correct in a reasonable time frame. Illinois follows a comparative negligence system, meaning at-fault parties can be held accountable for accidents even if the victim shares some responsibility.

Workplace Injuries:
Work-related accidents leading to broken bones may include slipping on a spill, tripping on misplaced items, falling due to inadequate handrails or lighting, being struck by heavy machinery or objects, or falling from scaffolding at a construction site. Generally, workers’ compensation insurance covers medical bills and other losses stemming from workplace injuries, but separate injury lawsuits may apply if intentional harm by the employer is proven. Liability may also extend to third parties unassociated with the employer and employee.

Broken Bones in Car Accidents:
Car accidents can cause fractures in any bone depending on the force applied during the collision. Commonly affected bones in car accidents include the collarbone, ribs, femur, pelvis, sternum, vertebrae, and radius. Severe car accidents may even result in skull fractures, which can be life-threatening. Victims should undergo a thorough medical examination after a crash, as fractured skulls can pose serious risks, including brain damage.

Fractured & Broken Bone Settlements

Breaking a bone in Illinois can result in significant medical expenses.

Injury settlements help victims regain their quality of life by compensating them for various damages, including:

  • All medical expenses, including surgery, physical therapy, medications, and ongoing medical care
  • Compensation for lost wages due to missed work
  • Ongoing loss of income if the broken bone prevents the victim from returning to work in the same capacity as before the accident
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
