Accident Causing Clavicle Fractures

A clavicle break, or fracture, can happen several ways. The most common are accidents that exert excessive force to the clavicle and surrounding structures. Another common cause of collarbone fractures is force, or a direct blow, directly to the collarbone. Accidents that can result in collarbone injuries are:

  • Falls where the arms are outstretched to brace the body
  • Staircase accidents
  • Auto accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents

What To Do After Your Collarbone Accident

As with any injury, the first thing you should do is seek appropriate medical care. A medical professional will need to perform diagnostic tests to determine the extent of your injury. This can be done via visual, or objective, observations, x-rays and, if necessary a CT scan. A CT Scan is done to rule out nerve damage associated with the injury.

After you see a medical professional you should immediately consult with a Newport Beach California Injury Lawyer as your injuries may entitle you to benefits and compensation per California Personal Injury Law.
