Minnesota Broken Clavicle Attorney

Designed to support and align the shoulder, the clavicle (also known as the collarbone) stretches between the sternum and the scapula, protecting the brachial plexus and the subclavian arteries.  This allows for blood to circulate to the head and arms.

The three types of clavicle fractures are:

  • simple, mid-bone fracture
  • open fracture
  • nonunion

Victims of slip and fall and motor vehicle accidents commonly suffer from broken clavicle injuries, many of them being simple, mid-bone fractures.

Simple, mid-bone fractures can heal on its own for the first week with the use of a sling.  A figure-eight harness is then required to keep the bone in line during the healing process.  While a broken clavicle does not have many long-term complications, those recovering from a broken clavicle will always have a visible bump.

Any type of debris can contaminate the wound and cause infection so it is vital to seek medical treatment if you have an open fracture.  Surgery may also be required to treat open fractures.

If the break is close to the shoulder joint, surgery may be required because the clavicle fracture is unstable and will not be able to heal properly.

If you have been involved in an accident due to another person’s negligence and have suffered a broken clavicle, you may be entitled to compensation.
