Broken collar bone injury
Being involved in a car accident can be scary enough without then having the trauma of dealing with a broken bone. If you have broken your collar bone after a car crash you will know that it is an incredibly painful injury and if the accident was not your fault you may be feeling frustrated or upset that you had to suffer from such severe injuries due to someone else’s negligence.
Breaking your collar bone, sometimes referred to as a broken or fractured clavicle, will likely need to be looked at by a doctor and you may need an X-ray to confirm that the bone is broken. It can take up to eight weeks to heal, or possible longer if there are complications or any surgery required.
Recovering from a broken collar bone often requires a sling and some painkillers. You may find relief from an icepack too. You may feel more comfortable with extra pillows in your bed to help you sleep at night and you may need to see a physiotherapist to help you with some shoulder and arm exercises while your body heals. Making a car accident claim in Shropshire may help to pay for rehabilitation costs such as these.
