I have broken my leg; I tripped down a flight of stairs...it isn't fun :( Anyway, there is no specific way someone can break their leg. Some people can just fall by accident; others were in a car accident. There are lots of differentiated possibilities. Some breaks are more serious than others, and some are minor. Hope I helped :)
slipped from stairs and broke my thick tibia a bit above the ankle. luckily it was a closed fracture. it is a long recovery line. the doc said 3-6mths spontaneously. it has been 10 weeks since and i am still in a full leg plaster cast from toes to mid thigh. thank God we dont hear about people breaking leg bones every so often because it is a long patient recovery process.
