There are various kinds of fractures. However, some of the most common ones that claims are filed for include:
Hairline Fracture - A hairline fracture is a superficial crack to the bone that does not go all the way through. Like the name implies, this crack on the bone appears like a hairline on the surface. Typically, this type of fracture will go unnoticed by most people. However, it is not uncommon for hairline fractures to cause pain or discomfort. Keep in mind that if left untreated or put under stress, a hairline fracture has the potential to cause your bone to break.
Simple Fracture - A single crack to the bone that does not damage the surrounding skin or tissue is known as a simple fracture. Usually, this type of fracture will not displace the bone, so the bone would retain its usual shape and will typically not require any form of manipulation to put it back in place.
The fracture can either be oblique (a slanted crack across the bone), transverse (a straight crack that runs through your bone) or longitudinal (a horizontal crack that runs across the length of your bone). Simple fractures are generally treated by applying a cast and allowing ample time to heal.
Displaced Fracture - A displaced fracture implies that the affected bone is now misaligned at the point of fracture. A displaced fracture will usually require expert medical intervention and manipulation to realign the bone before a cast can be applied.
Compound Fracture - A fracture to the bone that has occurred in multiple areas is known as a compound fracture. On the other hand, a single fracture is known as a simple fracture.
Spiral Fracture - A grievous fracture caused by a twisting force is called a spiral fracture. Such fractures are usually severe and present several complications.
Stress Fracture - A stress fracture is a type of fracture that occurs when a bone cracks after having been subjected to prolonged or repeated forces of stress and strain. Claims for stress fractures are common in sports training or workplaces where manual handling is common.
Children Related Fractures, Buckle & Greenstick Fracture - Often limited to children, buckle or torus fracture refers to a situation where instead of the bone fracturing, it deforms to prevent a fracture. This type of fracture can only happen in children since their bones are underdeveloped and flexible.
Greenstick fracture – occurring only in children, describes a condition where a bone cracks on one side but does not result in a break. Here, the child’s developing bone is more flexible, and so rather than crack all the way or break, the bone bends or deform.
Other Fractured Bones - There are also several other types of fracture that you can sustain including an avulsion fracture (a condition where an overworked muscle misaligns from the bone prompting it to break), a compression fracture (spine-related fracture), impacted fracture (when a bone comes into forced contact with another bone causing it to break – this kind of fracture is common in high impact scenarios such as road accidents).
Fractured or broken clavicle, also called a broken collarbone, depicts a fracture of the clavicle bone. Symptoms can range from pain at the fractured area or a reduced range of motion in the affected arm.
Fractured or broken arm. Fracture of one of the bones in the arm accounts for more than half of the fracture cases in adults. In children, the most common type of arm fracture includes a broken forearm or a broken collarbone.
Fractured or broken leg. This depicts a fracture or crack in one of the bones in the leg. Common causes include falls, sports-related injuries & vehicular accidents. Treatment for a broken leg will vary based on the severity of the injury.
Fractured or broken foot. A fracture or crack in one of the bones in the foot. Causes include a slip & trip or a car accident. Severity will vary based on cause & can range from small cracks to a visible break that pierces the skin.

Depends on what area of the arm is broken or fractured so any amount...
The fractured leg will make it difficult or impossible to walk and...
The fractured wrist is unable to remain stable. Acute pain and bruising...
Several factors are involved in the claim calculation, and multiple variables tend to complicate the process. Another tricky problem is the fact that not all compensation claims can be categorised as single litigation. Regardless of how complex the process may seem, it is crucial that at the very least you have a “ballpark figure,” as it can have a significant impact on the result of your case.
