Injured on your holidays?
Whether you’ve been enjoying a city break in Madrid, a beach holiday in The Canaries or exploring the country on a road trip, a holiday to Spain is usually packed with sun, sea and plenty of good food and drink. The last thing anybody expects is to be injured on their holidays, but if the worst happens, you’re not alone. A broken clavicle, also known as a broken collarbone, is usually caused as the result of falling onto an outstretched hand or arm, but can also be the result of a direct blow to the shoulder, for example in a road traffic accident. Clavicle fractures are surprisingly common – in fact, they account for about 5% of all fractures.
What’s the treatment and prognosis?
If you have tripped on damaged paving stones outside your apartment or been injured in a road traffic accident on an excursion with your tour company, you could get in touch with us to find out about making a personal injury claim. Symptoms of a broken clavicle can include pain when moving, swelling, nausea and dizziness, and you’ll need an x-ray to diagnose the severity of the fracture. Treatment can be surgical or nonoperative, depending on the severity of your injuries. You may be told to wear a splint or sling for two to six weeks whilst the bone heals itself, or you may need to go in for surgery, which can prolong the healing process. Generally, most people are able to go back to work within three months, but we all heal at different rates.
