Understanding Greenstick Fractures

Greenstick Fractures

Injuries from Car Accidents in Atlanta

"I heard the doctor say the phrase 'greenstick fracture' what does that mean?"

A greenstick fracture is diagnosed when a bone cracks but doesn’t break all the way through. This type of fracture tends to be more likely in younger-aged bones, those of infants or children, that are more flexible. A greenstick fracture is named for the similar effect that occurs when you try to bend a green stick of wood and the outside splinters off while the rest of the wood bends.

It can be difficult to clearly distinguish a greenstick fracture after an automobile accident. A child can be vague regarding his/her injuries and pain, and the symptoms of greenstick fractures are common to other injuries – pain, swelling, bent or twisted limb and, in some cases, no symptoms.

The Kalka Law Group Helps Client with Greenstick Fracture

Recently, a client of ours was involved in a car accident in which the child in the vehicle was injured. Our client’s child suffered a greenstick fracture, and our skilled Atlanta personal injury attorneys proved the injuries to the insurance company. Our client’s case was successfully settled so that our client received the maximum amount of the insurance policy.

If your child has been injured in a recent car accident and you are looking for legal advice, please contact The Kalka Law Group.
