Q: Motorcycle accident injuries: Do I have a broken collarbone?

A: A broken collarbone, or clavicle, is a common Florida motorcycle injury. The collarbone may fracture when a rider holds out his arms to prevent a fall or as his shoulder makes contact with the pavement. Some of the symptoms of a broken clavicle include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Limited ability to move arm or shoulder
  • A lump or bruise over the collarbone
  • Visible protrusion under the skin
  • A “snap” sound as the bone breaks

A broken collarbone can be extremely painful, and requires medical attention immediately following the crash. Common treatments include x-rays and restrained movement, usually involving a sling for the affected arm to allow the bones to knit.

If you have sustained an injury that resulted in costly medical treatment, contact Fetterman & Associates today for advice from an experienced West Palm Beach accident attorney. Call us at 561-845-2510.
