A broken collarbone can cause pain and suffering, significantly impacting mobility and potentially requiring months to heal.

At Jones Whyte, we understand the physical and emotional toll of collarbone injuries. If you’ve suffered due to someone else’s negligence, making a broken collarbone compensation claim is crucial to ensure you receive the support you need for your recovery.

Broken Collarbone Compensation Claim

Collarbone injuries, often resulting from accidents or falls, can range from fractures to more severe breaks. These injuries not only cause immediate pain but can also lead to long-term discomfort, affecting your daily life and activities.

Seeking a compensation payout is not just about the financial aspect; it’s about holding those responsible accountable for the impact on your well-being.

Common causes of collarbone injuries are:

  • Trips and falls.
  • Sports injuries.
  • Car accidents.
  • Medical negligence.

Collarbone Injury Compensation

In most cases, the collarbone will heal normally, although there will be a period of swelling, pain and reduced mobility, especially in the shoulder.

However, a broken collarbone can result in complications. These can include:

  • Infection.
  • Damage to surrounding blood vessels.
  • Arthritis.

Aside from money to make up for your pain and suffering, collarbone injury compensation claims can help you access specialist medical care that can aid your recovery.

How Can A Collarbone Injury Affect Your Day-to-Day Life?

A collarbone fracture, also known as a clavicle fracture, can significantly impact various aspects of your day-to-day life due to the crucial role the collarbone plays in upper body movement and support. Here are some ways a collarbone fracture can affect your daily life:

Pain and Discomfort

  • Immediate and persistent pain is a common consequence of a collarbone fracture. Simple activities like reaching, lifting, or even breathing deeply can become painful and challenging.

Limited Arm Mobility

  • The collarbone connects the arm to the rest of the body, and a fracture can restrict the range of motion in the affected arm. Tasks that involve raising the arm, reaching overhead, or carrying objects may be difficult.

Difficulty Sleeping

  • Finding a comfortable sleeping position can be challenging with a collarbone fracture. The pain and discomfort may affect your ability to sleep on the side of the injured shoulder.

Impact on Daily Tasks

  • Routine tasks such as dressing, grooming, and bathing may become more cumbersome due to limited arm movement and the need to protect the injured collarbone.

Work and Productivity

  • If your job involves physical labor or requires the use of your arms extensively, a collarbone fracture can lead to a temporary or even prolonged inability to perform work-related tasks.

Emotional Impact

  • Dealing with the limitations and pain from a collarbone fracture can take a toll on your emotional well-being. Frustration, stress, and feelings of dependency are not uncommon during the recovery period.

Social and Recreational Activities

  • Participation in social and recreational activities may be curtailed due to the physical limitations imposed by a collarbone fracture. Sports, hobbies, and other leisure activities may need to be temporarily put on hold.

Dependency on Others

  • Daily tasks that were once routine may require assistance, leading to increased dependency on friends, family, or caregivers during the recovery period.
