Shoulder Injury Claims
Whether you dislocate your shoulder during a fall or tear a rotator cut while training at the gym, a shoulder injury can have a detrimental effect on your health and life. A shoulder injury might also be caused during a road accident or while lifting materials at work. Our personal injury specialists handle claims for a range of injuries. When an individual or company is responsible for your injury, we will work hard to get a settlement you deserve.
Examples of shoulder injuries include fractures of the clavicle, serious shoulder dislocations and severe damage to the brachial plexus. Any of these injuries can have a serious impact on the mobility of your arm. They also result in significant pain and discomfort that might impact your day-to-day life, including your ability to work now and in the future. These injuries also have a traumatic affect and impact the time you spend with your family and friends. Losing mobility in your shoulder or chronic pain affects your ability to enjoy sports and play with your children. Treating these injuries is also costly, and certain injuries require ongoing rehabilitation to manage pain and restore mobility.
If you have suffered a serious injury to your shoulder, you may be entitled to compensation. This is especially true if you suffered the injury because of an accident where someone else was at fault and legally accountable. You may also be eligible if your employer has not provided the safeguards necessary to avoid stress or injury to your shoulder while carrying out work-related duties. We understand that recovery is your top priority after suffering a serious injury due to an accident. At the same time, you should contact us as soon as possible to ensure you get compensation. To make a claim, the accident should have happened within the last three years.
Compensation for shoulder injuries often depends on the nature of the injury itself. The amount you receive will also depend on how the injury has impacted your life, including your ability to work. At minimum, compensation pay-outs for shoulder injuries typically include general damages. This amount can range from £3,900 to £9,300 for a fractured clavicle to £14,600 or more for serious damaged caused to your brachial plexus. When making a claim, you must ensure that any special damages such as financial damages are included. Our personal injury solicitors will work with you to make sure all damages caused are considered in the award or settlement.
We handle your claims with honesty and integrity. Once you provide all the information needed for your claim, our injury specialists will assess your case to determine your eligibility for compensation. We also gather any necessary evidence to provide that you were not to blame for your injury. No case is too complicated for us, and we will not charge you if we do not win. When negotiating settlements, we will ensure that the compensation reflects the pain and suffering caused by the injury. We also work hard to get the best possible settlement that includes any past and future lost earnings due to time you had to take off work and medical expenses related to treating the injury.
