I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer. Everyone understands that there is a risk of injury with every car accident; however, some injuries are more common than others. A broken leg is a common injury in car accidents because it is relatively exposed at the front of the car, a common point of impact in car accidents. The leg has multiple bones and one of the bones that is commonly injured is called the tibia. It is important that patients understand how tibia fractures are sustained in auto accidents so that they can seek compensation if justified.
