Pelvic Fracture—Broken Pelvis

Pelvic Fracture—Broken Pelvis

Blunt trauma are injuries that occur to the pelvic region because of a fall, motor vehicle accident, motorcycle accident, bicycle accident or a pedestrian being struck by a car, motorcycle or bike. Because the pelvis has many parts, injury in one location often means a second location also contains a break.
