What are some common types of fracture?

Common types of bone fractures include:

  • Compound fractures: Also known as open fractures, compound fractures occur when the broken bone pierces through the skin, leading to an external wound. These fractures pose a higher risk of infection due to the exposure of the bone to the external environment.
  • Comminuted fractures: The term comminuted fracture is when the bone breaks into multiple fragments or pieces. These fractures can be more challenging to treat and may require surgical intervention to align and stabilise the bone fragments.
  • Spiral fractures: Spiral fractures happen when a bone breaks due to a twisting or spinning force, creating a break that wraps around the bone’s length. These fractures are commonly seen in sports injuries or accidents involving excessive twisting motions.
  • Compression fractures: Compression fractures typically occur in the vertebrae of the spine, where the bone collapses or becomes compressed due to significant force or trauma. These fractures are commonly seen in older individuals with osteoporosis or in high-impact accidents.
  • Greenstick fractures: Greenstick fractures are commonly seen in children whose bones are still developing and are more flexible. In this type of fracture, the bone bends and partially breaks, resembling a green twig that has been bent but not snapped completely.
  • Avulsion fractures: Avulsion fractures occur when a ligament or tendon pulls away a small piece of bone from its attachment site. This type of fracture is commonly seen in sports activities that involve sudden, forceful movements or extreme stretching of the tendons.

What can I include in my Fracture Claim?

If you have suffered a serious bone fracture due to an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, it is important to understand your rights. At Brian Barr Solicitors, we can help you to pursue a compensation claim to cover your medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and other associated damages from your accident.

What may begin as a seemingly small fracture could have life changing consequences. 

As well as the circumstances surrounding your injury, the total compensation you can receive depends on factors such as the severity of the fracture and the impact on your life. Every case is different and at Brian Barr we will ensure that we build a strong case to enable you to receive fair and appropriate compensation for your injury.

Compensation often includes:

  • General damages: General damages compensate for the pain, suffering, and loss of amenity you have experienced due to the broken bones. The severity of the fracture, the level of pain endured, the impact on your daily activities, and any long-term effects will be considered in determining the compensation amount.
  • Medical expenses: Compensation may cover the costs of medical treatments, surgeries, hospital stays, medication, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation required for your injuries. It should encompass both past and future expenses related to your injury and recovery.
  • Loss of earnings: If your injury has resulted in time away from work or a diminished ability to perform your job, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of earnings. This can include lost wages, bonuses, or career advancement opportunities. Future loss of earning capacity may also be considered if your injury has long-term implications on your ability to work.
  • Rehabilitation and care costs: Broken bones often require rehabilitation services, physical therapy, or the assistance of caregivers during the recovery process. Compensation may cover the costs associated with these services, ensuring you receive the necessary support to regain functionality and independence.
  • Special damages: Special damages include Loss of Earnings and also account for additional financial losses. This may include travel expenses related to medical appointments, modifications to your home or vehicle to accommodate your injury, and any necessary assistive devices.
  • Other damages: Depending on the specific circumstances of your case, you may be eligible for additional damages, such as emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, or loss of consortium (to compensate for the impact the injury may have had on your relationship with your significant other).

Frequently Asked Questions

Serious fractures can occur due to various accidents and incidents, causing significant pain, functional limitations, and long-term consequences. 


  • High-impact collisions: Motor vehicle and road traffic accidents, especially those involving high speeds or forceful impacts, can result in severe fractures. The sudden deceleration or direct impact can cause bones to break, leading to complex fractures that require extensive medical intervention.
  • Falls from height: Whether at work or in a public place, falls from elevated surfaces, such as ladders, scaffolding, or staircases, can lead to serious fractures. The impact of landing on a hard surface can cause bones to break, especially in the limbs, hips, or spine.
  • Workplace accidents: When safety is not made a top priority, industrial accidents, construction site mishaps, or incidents involving heavy machinery or equipment can often result in serious fractures. Crush injuries or falls in hazardous work environments can lead to fractures that require immediate medical attention.
  • Sports and recreational activities: Engaging in high-impact sports or recreational activities without proper safety measures can result in serious fractures. Collisions, falls, or contact with hard surfaces or objects can cause bones to break, particularly in areas exposed to the most impact, such as limbs, wrists, or ankles.
  • Pedestrian accidents: Being struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian can cause severe fractures, especially if the impact is forceful or at high speed. The bones can bear the brunt of the collision, resulting in fractures that may require surgical intervention and extensive rehabilitation.


It is important to remember that serious fractures can have long-lasting effects on an individual’s physical and also emotional well-being. The individual may require multiple surgeries, extended periods of immobilisation, rehabilitation, and the injury may lead to chronic pain or disability. Therefore, it is important to establish the cause of the accident, and if it was due to someone else’s negligence then you may be entitled to compensation. Although nothing can take away an injury or disability, financial compensation can help when you face the associated hurdles from your injury now and later in life.

Most personal injury claims in the UK are subject to a time limit of 3 years. However, some broken bone claims can benefit from exceptions to this rule, such as those relating to children under 18, and claims involving individuals lacking mental capacity.

Broken bones have the ability to heal by fusing back together over time. Therefore, treatment is mainly aimed at ensuring the healed bone is as strong as it was before the accident. This usually includes medical procedures that are designed to align the bone correctly, allowing it to heal in the right position.

More complex fractures may require surgical procedures to ensure a perfect alignment.

Common treatments include:

  • Plaster casts
  • Braces
  • Splints
  • Rods, bolts, and plates
  • Surgical traction
  • Pain relief medication

Most simple fractures are simply treated with a plaster cast, applied on top of bandages. One exception is longer bones, such as the femur, as these are more challenging to keep aligned. These are often aligned using nails, pins, and plates, before being immobilised into a cast.
