The upper arm bone is called the humerus. The primary function of the humerus is to support the forearms and hands while helping to provide a variety of arm movements. When somebody thinks about serious auto accident injuries, they typically imagine life-threatening trauma such as spinal fractures, head trauma, broken legs, severe burns, paralysis, amputations, and other catastrophic injuries. Humerus bone fractures are extremely painful and require a lot of time to heal properly. Fortunately, motor vehicle accident victims who sustain humerus bone fractures may have the legal right to file a claim to recover monetary compensation from a negligent driver who caused a motor vehicle accident.

Enjoy Everyday Activities - A fractured humerus is often accompanied by "range of motion" issues. In a lot of cases, the injury victim needs to wear a medical sling to lessen the weight and pressure off of the injury.
