Different Classifications of Bone Fractures
Whether you were involved in a car accident, slip and fall accident, or were the victim of assault and battery, you may have suffered from a bone fracture. Also known as a broken bone, a bone fracture can be classified in a number of different ways depending on the accident and severity of the injury.

What are the Different Classifications of Bone Fractures?
The classification of your bone fracture is determined by the severity of the damage to the bone as well as the details of the injury. These classifications include the following:
- Simple or closed fracture is where the skin is not broken
- Compound or open is where the bone has broken through the skin
- Complete fracture is where the bone has been separated
- Incomplete fracture is when the bone is still partially connected
No matter the severity of your injury or classification of your fracture, if you were injured due to someone else’s negligent actions you can likely take legal action to pursue financial compensation to pay for the expenses related to your injury.
Consider pursuing action against a party whose irresponsible actions caused you harm in order to get the compensation you need. For more information about your legal options, contact a San Diego personal injury attorney at (619) 296-0123 today and learn more about your legal options.
