$250,000 settlement for a surgically repaired broken clavicle in a car crash
Car accident results in $250K in compensation for victim with serious shoulder injury
The client suffered a broken clavicle and other related contusions and injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident.
The matter resolved without the need for a lawsuit for the sum of $250,000.
A broken clavicle is typically caused by a direct impact on the shoulder, which can happen as the result of a car accident, motorcycle crash or a slip and fall accident. Clavicle fractures might not be as visually apparent as other bone fractures, so if your broken collarbone has visible signs of injury be sure to document them in a photograph before they fade.
The danger of settling for less
Shoulder injuries, including broken bones and soft tissue injuries, can get worse over time. The shoulder joint is highly complex, and the most mobile joint in the body. A broken clavicle is extremely painful and can make you unable to use your arm until it heals.
Accepting a lowball offer from the insurance company right after the accident could leave you stuck with unpaid medical bills down the road if complications from your injury arise.
