What I'm planing to inflict on the poor guy right now is a femural fracture, partly because I found two 100-pages-essays about treatment and possible effects. What I want to know now is the following:
- Is it likely for a femural fracture to occur in a t-bone-crash? The way I've written it so far, the other car crashed into the character's car on the driver's side, on purpose, on an intersection. For me as a complete medical layman (laywoman? XD), it sounds logical that the femur would break from an impact like that?
- What other injuries would occur alongside with it? How would these injuries, uh, interact with each other?
- Is there anyone around who DOES deal with permanent injury because of such a fracture themselves? I'd appreciate any and all descriptions of the sensations related to the long-term effects, the sort of pain or uncomfortableness that comes with it, and so on. Really, anything will help!
I searched on Google and Bing, using several combinations of "t-bone crash injuries", "side impact car crash injuries", "permanent (leg) injury car crash", "femoral fracture car crash", "femoral fracture t-bone crash", "femoral fracture long-term effects". Mostly, that brought up insurance lawyers. XD Also, I searched for the same things on the German versions of both websites, which mostly gave me auto test reports.
