If you have decided to make a compensation claim following a personal injury then you may be wondering where to…
Shoulder injuries can range from somewhat minor injuries that resolve themselves relatively quickly, to severe injuries that cause lasting problems and disabilities. While shoulder damage can lead to pain and suffering, which can be intense and chronic, it can also make it hard or impossible for people to move their arm. This can mean shoulder injury compensation claims might exceed the figures detailed on this infographic – some claimants might be unable to continue in their job and might face substantial lost wages and medical expenses.
There are a range of different bones, ligaments and muscles involved in the shoulder, and the size of a shoulder injury claim will depend on what has been damaged and how severe the damage will be. Shoulder injuries will typically involve damage to the scalpula, known as the shoulder-blade, the brachial plexus, which are a series of nerves, or the rotator cuff, which are a group of tendons and muscles that stabilise the joint.
A huge range of accidents can lead to shoulder injury claims, from road accidents to manual handling injuries or slips and falls in the workplace. If the accident was partially or wholly caused by the negligence of another party, then you should be able to make a personal injury claim against them or their insurers. The circumstances of the accident could also change the value of the compensation claim.
