Sternal fractures are fractures of the sternum, the bone in the center of your chest which attaches all of your ribs. Sternal fractures occur in roughly 3 percent of car accidents, and are thus by no means overly rare. Sternal fractures are painful, and can make simple activities such as breathing, moving your arms or bending down extremely painful and taxing. Since the sternum is in the middle of the chest, it's major function is to protect the vital organs behind it, thus, another associated risk with a sternal fracture is injuries to other organs. Due to the severity of the impact to the sternum, it is possible that the organs behind it were damaged as well.

A sternal fracture can take months to heal, and in the meantime your breathing and mobility will be extremely restricted, and in some cases tracheal intubation and mechanical ventilators are needed to ensure an injured person receives the oxygen they need. You can be incapacitated for months, and if this injury could have been avoided, you need to pursue the party who was responsible for harming your well being. Yet you need not do this alone.
