Boston Fractured Sternum Lawyer

It is estimated that a fractured sternum results in about three percent¬†of car accidents. Most frequently, a fractured sternum injury results from a driver or passenger’s chest striking the steering wheel, seatbelt, or glove box. In the absence of actual impact, a fractured sternum injury may also result from a sudden and unexpected flex of the chest. In addition, fractured sternum injuries are more common if other diseases may have weakened the bone. If you have been injured recently, you may need to contact one of our Boston fractured sternum lawyers.

Fractured Sternum Injuries

Victims of fractured sternum injuries are considered high risk for other injuries. In fact, doctors are educated to look for other significant injuries in the event they confirm a sternal fracture. These injuries have been connected to injuries to the heart and lungs. In particular, related injuries include:

  1. Damage to the blood vessels
  2. Myocardial and pulmonary contusions
  3. Abdominal injuries
  4. Broken vertebrae
  5. Head injuries
  6. Rib fractures

Unfortunately for victims of these injuries, it is estimated the mortality may be as high as 25 to 45 percent of those who suffer from these injuries. There is good news for those who suffer sternum injuries in isolation, however. The prognosis is considered very good for those without associated injuries.

There are a number of signs and symptoms that can indicate a fractured sternum. Some of the more common symptoms include:

  • Severe pain
  • A crunching sound at the time of the break
  • Bruising, tenderness, or swelling at the fracture site

In order to diagnose a fractured sternum, medical personnel will most likely perform an X-Ray of the chest to confirm or deny the injury. Fractured sternum injuries that are overly painful may necessitate surgical intervention in order to move bones into place. Unfortunately, for the majority of sternum injuries, treatment consists of reducing pain and undertaking long periods of time with limited movement. Fractured sternum injuries can be slow to heal, disrupt sleep, and force victims out of work for long periods of time.

Fractured Sternum Injury Settlements

Our Boston fractured sternum lawyers know how to secure maximum compensation for those affected by sternum injuries. Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers was able to help a client receive $62,000 for their fractured sternum injury settlement after they fractured their sternum in a t-bone accident. Because most fractured sternum injuries do not include much continuity in terms of treatment, insurance companies will attempt to make low ball offers to victims not represented by aggressive and experienced Attorneys. At Michael Kelly Injury Lawyers, our lawyers will ensure you are not taken advantage of by insurance adjusters and will work tirelessly to ensure you recover money for your medical bills, lost wages, lost future earning capacity, replacement services, and pain and suffering.
