Broken bones is a common type of serious injury sustained in auto accidents. When vehicles collide, the force of the impact can cause bones to break, either directly or indirectly. Direct impact fractures happen when the bone is hit by another object, such as the dashboard or steering wheel. Indirect impact fractures happen when the force of impact causes the bone to bend or twist, which can cause a break.
Some of the bones that are likely to break in a car accident are collarbone, ribs, hip, leg bones, arm bones, wrist bones, and hand bones.
Broken bones may take a long time to recover, and some may need surgery depending on the type of fracture, the amount of force involved, and the location of the break.
