  • Car accidents.
  • Crushing injuries.

Some of the common symptoms include:

  • Chest pain, especially when taking deep breaths or laughing.
  • Pain when lifting objects.

Sternum injuries can be very painful, although this should ease after about 6 to 8 weeks. If you need surgery, your recovery time could be longer.

If you have suffered a fractured sternum, it is important to seek immediate medical advice. An X-ray will be needed to give an exact diagnosis, and decide on the best form of treatment.

Making a fractured sternum compensation claim

Levels of fractured sternum compensation can depend on how the incident happened and the long-term effect it has had on you.

You have up to three years to make a claim. However, we would encourage you to make a claim as quickly as possible. This will make it easier to gather supporting evidence and ensure that witnesses don’t forget important details.

Some of the evidence we will gather include:

  • Medical reports.
  • Witness statements.
  • Health and safety reports.

While we are making your claim, we can help you access specialist medical care, such as physiotherapy.

This can help aid your recovery and reduce the severity of the long-term effects of a fractured sternum.

Compensation claims are generally settled out of court. If court action is needed, we are tough and experienced litigators.
