The scapula, otherwise known as the shoulder blade, is a triangular bone that is found in the upper back. The scapula is supported and surrounded by a system of muscles working together to move the arm. The scapula bone is a strong bone that may be fractured in severe fall injuries or motor vehicle accidents. When people think about motor vehicle accident injuries, they often imagine life-threatening injuries such as broken necks, spinal fractures, broken legs, paralysis, amputations, and other catastrophic injuries. However, scapula bone fractures are very painful and need several months to heal properly. Fortunately, motor vehicle accident victims who suffer scapula bone fractures might be able to file a claim and recover monetary compensation from the negligent drivers who cause their accident injuries.

Enjoying Daily Activities - A broken scapula is usually accompanied with "range of motion" issues. In most cases, the victim will be required to wear a special cast or medical sling to take the weight and pressure off of the injured scapula. This injury affects the quality of life for anyone who has this type of injury.
Work - Scapula fractures are serious injuries that make it difficult to perform arm movements and these limitations can greatly impact your ability to perform job tasks. A victim with a broken scapula bone will find it is very difficult to lift, move, carry, or reach objects. Also, fractured scapula bones make it almost impossible for people to perform common tasks and perform their job. In severe situations, the victim will miss work days, lose earnings, or even lose their job. People with a fractured scapula bone will not be able to hold their arm up to write or type on a keyboard.
Although fractured scapulas heal in time, a victim's life may be seriously impacted for many months following the motor vehicle accident. Fractured scapula bone injuries also require more time to heal and physical therapy than other accident injuries.
