Bone fractures usually involve a partial or total crack in a bone. According to Ohio State University, over 6 million cases of broken bone injuries happen each year in the United States. Bone fractures are among the most common types of serious injury occurring in both adults and children. In adults, almost half of all bone fractures occur in the arm. In children, broken collarbones and forearm fractures are the most common broken bone injuries.

If there are excessive forces are involved in the injury, such as in a car accident, the affected bone could shatter.
