How to find out about claiming compensation for a scapular fracture
A scapular fracture is when the shoulder blade is fractured. It is a sturdy bone and located in a protected place so it rarely breaks. When it does, this usually indicates that the person has been in a bad accident where the scapula has suffered from a huge amount of force against it.
High speed vehicle accidents are the most common cause; this includes car accidents, motorcycle accidents and also accidents from bicycle riding. However, falls and blows to the area must not be ruled out. If you have been in an accident within the past 3 years which was not your fault, and you have broken your shoulder bone, you might be able to claim compensation for a scapular fracture.
