Compensation for
Broken Collar Bone

We've got your claim covered

Have you suffered a broken collar bone in a cycling accident?

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.

What can I claim compensation for with a broken collar bone injury?

  • Personal injury – if you have been left with injuries as the result of another person’s negligence then you could be eligible to make a claim to cover any costs that you have incurred as a result
  • Damages – in addition to your physical injuries you could also be suffering emotionally from pain and suffering
  • Loss of income – if you have been badly injured then you may be unable to work or return to work and as a result you may be eligible to make a claim for any lost earnings.

What are some common causes and symptoms of collar bone injuries?

Collar bone injuries are generally caused when the victim falls off the bicycle and hits the ground sharply, causing the bone to snap, break or fracture. Treatment may require surgery, or in some cases may simply involve rest and rehabilitation.

The main problem with treating collarbone injuries is that unlike an arm or leg breaks, it cannot be segregated and strapped, and as a result this can leave the victim with a long rehabilitation period where they are unable to move much of their upper body.

Who can I claim against?

When it comes to making a claim for a collar bone injury, you can claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you, this can include another road user if they have caused your accident, or the council or private property owners if your accident is the result of poor maintenance of a road or cycling area.
