The Long of it
Shoulder injury claims
A shoulder injury can be devastating, and the pain felt is only matched by the limitations you may now face with regards to movement of your arm and neck.
This pain can cause significant discomfort on a day-to-day level and in many cases prevents the victim from working, pursuing hobbies, or performing simple everyday tasks. Where it can be proved that the injury was caused by an accident that wasn’t your fault or by a workplace injury due to another’s negligence, then there may be a good chance of pursuing a successful personal injury claim and receiving compensation.
Shoulder injuries can occur as a result of
- falling on the shoulder directly or using an arm to break your fall
- incorrect lifting of an object
- lifting an object that is too heavy
- overuse causing torn muscles or tendons
Symptoms of shoulder injuries can include, but are not limited to, pain, stiffness, loss of function, bruising and redness. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is likely you have suffered an injury to your shoulder, and medical help is advised.
It may be that you require physiotherapy sessions or even surgery because of your injury. Time off work will be needed to facilitate these medical activities, and you and your family will suffer due to a loss of earnings as a result.
If your shoulder injury occurred within the last three years, you may be entitled to compensation from the at-fault party. Speak to us at Watermans today, where our specialist personal injury solicitors can help you to achieve the results you deserve.
Making a claim
How do I make a shoulder injury claim?
Sustaining a shoulder injury can have many consequences, including having reduced shoulder mobility and perhaps even decreased use of your arm.
Such injuries may mean you are now reliant on others for help with simple everyday tasks, like dressing, preparing food and grocery shopping. Similarly, it may mean that you are unable to work, resulting in a reduction in or total loss of earnings. This loss in earnings can cause undue stress, and you may be entitled to financial compensation to help you to get your life back on track.
If you have been a victim of a shoulder injury within the last three years, and it wasn’t your fault, speak to one of our expert personal injury solicitors today.
At Watermans, we provide straightforward legal advice to aid you in attaining the compensation and peace of mind that you deserve. We understand that creating a compensation claim can be daunting, but don’t worry. We take care of the legal side of everything, so you can concentrate on recovering from your injury.
We also operate a no win no fee policy at Watermans, meaning that you won’t have to pay us any solicitors fees if we don’t win. Speak to one of our dedicated personal injury specialists today to begin your compensation claim process.
How much compensation?
How much compensation for a shoulder injury?
The amount of compensation you could claim on a shoulder injury is dependent on the situation, and how serious your injury is. It may be that you are unable to work as a result of your accident, or may need constant around-the-clock care. If that is the case, the sum of your compensation win could be significantly larger than if you are experiencing mild tissue damage.
Whatever the degree of injury, we at Watermans always strive to get you the best result possible.
