Claiming for shoulder injuries
There are three parts of your shoulder which can be injured or damaged, the shoulder blade itself and the bones in the shoulder. Your rotator cuff, which is the part that joins your upper arm to your shoulder, you can damage bones, ligaments and tendons. Your brachial plexus, a collection of nerves that pass from your shoulder to your spine, victims of whiplash accidents can often damage or injure their brachial plexus with symptoms such as a tingling sensation in their fingers or shoulder pain.
Shoulder Injury Compensation
If you’ve been injured in an accident or due to someone else’s negligence you could be entitled to claim for compensation to cover your pain and future needs.
We have an excellent team of recognised experts. Our head of personal injury department Jeanette Whyman is accredited by the Law Society and the Association of Personal Injury Solicitors, many of her medical negligence cases you will have seen in the national newspapers. Our team are well regarded as being experts in serious injury cases involving both medical negligence and personal injury.
Shoulder injuries are quite common especially in road traffic accidents where the force of impact caused whiplash and damage to the nerves, muscles and tendons and brachial plexus.
Accidents in the workplace such as lifting and loading and slips and trips are also common for causing shoulder injuries. In the workplace continual manual lifting and loading can put pressure on the shoulders resulting in damage to the tendons and muscles that make up the rotator cuff. Lifting weights that are too heavy or without proper assistance can also cause shoulder injury.
In instances of trips and slips either in the workplace or in public places like shopping centres or out of the pavement your natural reaction to slipping is to reach out with your arm to try and brace your fall, this causes your shoulder to take the full weight of your fall and can cause damage to bones, tendons, ligaments and nerves. These kind of injuries can take a long time to heal fully and in some instances physiotherapy and rehabilitation may be required, your compensation should cover this.
