Frequently Asked Questions

Simple & Compound Fractures

"What is the difference between a simple and a compound fracture?"

There are two causes for a bone fracture to occur:

  • Traumatic: From a high force impact or stress
  • Pathological: From a medical condition that weakens the bone

The two traumatic types of fractures are often seen as a result of a traffic accident. The Kalka Law Group has seen many accident victims with either of these types of injury, commonly occurring in the wrist or arm, with bicycle, motorcycle and car crashes.

  • Simple Fracture: Often called a closed fracture, a simple fracture is a fracture in which the injured bone cracks or breaks but does not pierce the skin.
  • Compound Fracture: A compound fracture is a fracture in which the injured bone sticks through the skin. Also known as an open fracture, a compound fracture can be a bit more serious in nature. Compound fractures usually require surgery. During surgery, doctors repair the break in the bone as well as the break in the skin and clean out the wound to prevent infection.

If you were riding your motorcycle or bicycle or even driving your car and involved in an accident where you suffered a simple or compound fracture, please contact The Kalka Law Group today.
