When it comes to cycling accidents, upper body injuries are increasingly common as in general that is one area of the body that tends to take the brunt of the impact. In general if you are involved in a cycling accident you will usually be thrown from the bicycle and this will result in you often using your upper body to break your fall, or to protect yourself, as a result injuries to this area, such as collar bone injuries are quite common.
The collar bone is a crucial part of our upper body movement and without it, it can be difficult to perform a range of daily tasks including lifting, pushing, pulling and any other tasks which involve use of the shoulders, arms or chest. As a result, an injury in this area could leave you out of work or unable to complete a number of daily tasks.
If you have been left with a collar bone injury through the negligence of another person, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred as a result.
