Commonly Broken Bones in Jacksonville Car Accidents

By on May 31, 2016

Americans spend such a significant amount of their lives in cars that we often forget how dangerous they can be. Even with modern safety features like safety belts and airbags, there’s no getting around the fact that cars weigh an average of two tons, are composed mainly of steel, and can travel at high speeds. This is why car accidents so often result in serious injury and sometimes death.

Broken and shattered bones are a common injury suffered in a car accident. The following are some of the bones that most often broken in Jacksonville vehicle collisions:

  • Arms are often broken in car accidents because passengers and drivers tend to brace themselves with their arms anticipating the impact of a crash.
  • Collarbones are often broke from contact with hard surfaces or from shoulder straps.
  • Ankles are often broken when bracing for impact or by getting twisted or turned during the accident.
  • The foot is comprised of 26 small bones, all of which can break during a collision, especially if a portion of the lower passenger compartment collapses.
  • The hand has 27 small bones, any of which can be broken when attempting brace oneself or by banging into a hard object, such as a steering wheel.
  • Legs are often broken when a person braces for impact or when the passenger compartment is compromised.
  • Facial bones are vulnerable in car crashes because the head may make contact with the steering wheel, windshield, airbag, or other hard surface. The most commonly broken facial bone is the nose, followed by the jaw.
