Spiral Fracture After a Slip and Fall

Slip and Fall Accident Causing a Spiral Fracture in Indiana

There are many different injuries that could be caused in a fall. Some injuries are caused by the actual impact with the ground, while other injuries are caused during the mechanism of falling. Meaning that some injuries are caused in the actual slip or trip that causes a person to lose balance and fall. One such type of injury is a spiral fracture after a slip and fall. This is a unique type of fractured bone or broken bone that can be extremely painful and take a longer time to heal than other broken bones. If you suffered a spiral fracture in a fall, call our experienced slip and fall lawyers at Shaw Law in Indiana for help.

What is a Broken Bone?

A broken bone is just what it sounds like. This is when the broken suffers some type of injury or damage which causes it to break. That break could be something like a crack or fracture line in the bone. Or that break could be something more significant such as the bone shattering, splitting, or even cutting through skin. A fracture may also be caused by a dent in a bone damaging it. Thus, a broken bone or fractured bone is anytime that a broken is damaged in such as way that it causes a defect in it.

What is a Spiral Fracture?

There are many different types of fractures or broken bones. A spiral fracture is a type of fracture that looks like a corkscrew on an x-ray. The damage to the bone goes up and down the bone in a spiral-staircase like manner, damaging a large portion of the bone. The damage could be in an area of the bone where there was no impact or force upon it, but just where the fracture line continued down it.

What Causes a Spiral Fracture

A spiral fracture is caused by two forces going in opposite directions, usually with a twist or pull away from the body. For example, a spiral fracture is a common type of broken bone that indicates abuse in a nursing home. It can happen when a patient is pulling away from a caretaker, and a caretaker is pulling the patient towards them or in another direction. The result is a spiral fracture, indicating abuse.

In a slip, trip, and fall accident, a spiral fracture can happen in much the same way when a person’s foot is caught in a hole, under a stair, or snagged in a way but a person is moving or falling in the opposite direction. This can happen when a person’s foot is caught and they lose balance, causing them to fall. The resulting injury is either a compound fracture or spiral fracture.

Compensation for a Spiral Fracture After a Slip and Fall

A spiral fracture is often the result of a painful accident, meaning that individuals may be able to obtain compensation for their injuries as a result of their fall for pain and suffering. This is often the largest part of a personal injury case. But the agony that is pain and suffering is not the only thing that a victim may obtain. Some victims may obtain compensation for lost wages, medical bills, loss of consortium, and other damages as a result of a slip, trip, and fall.
