Connecticut Broken Bones Attorneys
At Jonathan Perkins Injury Lawyers, our Connecticut broken bones lawyers often represent clients who have suffered a fracture or broken bone in an auto accident. When force is applied to bone that is stronger than the bone itself, a fracture usually occurs.
Broken bones do not just result from Connecticut auto accidents, however. In fact, in almost all practice areas of personal injury law, bone fractures can occur, including nursing home injury cases and slip and fall claims.
If you or a loved one has suffered a broken or fractured bone caused by the actions or negligence of another person or entity, please do not hesitate to contact our firm to see if we can help you seek justice for your losses.

Types of Bone Fractures
There are many types of broken bones, but the most common categories of fractures include the following:
- Complete Fractures – This type of injury happens when the bone snaps into two pieces.
- Incomplete Fractures – In this type of injury, the bone breaks, but not into completely separate pieces.
- Compound Fractures or Open Fractures – The bone breaks the skin in this type of injury.
- Simple Fracture – A simple fracture can be a transverse, oblique, comminuted, impacted, stress or hairline fracture.
Some fractures and broken bones are far more serious than others; the severity of the injury depends on the circumstances of the accident.
In the United States, broken bones account for some of the most frequent hospital visits. About 6.3 million bone fractures occur each year across the country.
Treatment for broken bones depends on the type of break that occurred, and can often get expensive. Common bone breaks include:
If you suffered a broken bone due to no fault of your own, we believe that you deserve compensation for medical bills incurred from the injury, among other damages related to the crash. Complete the Free Case Evaluation form to the right to see if we can help.
Causes of Broken Bones
Bones are usually strong and able to withstand most of an impact. However, when a strong enough force hits the body, there are times when the bones are unable to endure the force of impact. Under these circumstances, a broken bone can result.
Some of the most common causes of broken bones include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Auto Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Motorcycle Crashes
- On-the-Job Injuries
- Boating Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Sports Injuries
