Although many people believe a fracture to be the separation of just one area of the bone, this is not always the case and there are a number of different fractures that you could receive at any one time. Perhaps one of the most significant fractures that you might receive, and also one of the most painful is a complete fracture and this generally results in the complete separation of your bones.
Complete fractures can often require a long rehabilitation period and if you are working then you may be required to take an additional period of time off work before you are back to full health – both of these elements can leave you with a hefty medical bill. If you find yourself in this situation then you could consider a claim for compensation.
In general many fractures refer to a certain part of the bone becoming fractured, or a fracture which occurs at a certain angle, with a complete fracture the entire bone has become broken and separated into two or more parts. Complete fractures are often more severe than traditional fractures in that they generally require surgery or the use of pins and other items to actually hold the bones together while the repair process takes place. This can mean extended rehabilitation and a great deal of medical costs.
