Shoulder injuries can occur in a number of ways, causing varying levels of pain and discomfort. The most common causes of shoulder injuries involve accidents that have happened in the workplace, on the road or while lifting heavy objects.They are also often caused by damage to the shoulder during a slip or trip when arms are used to break a fall.

Types of injuries typically sustained to the shoulder include:

  • Sprains or strains
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Rotator cuff disorders
  • Broken arm or collarbone
  • Acromioclavicular joint disorders

Effects of Shoulder Injuries

An injury to the shoulder can cause a great deal of discomfort to the sufferer and disruption to their daily life. They might be left in constant or recurring pain, unable to carry out simple actions or suffer from weakness in the joint.

If your shoulder injury was caused in an accident as a result of someone else’s negligence, compensation can help to ensure rapid access to treatment not available on the NHS and help with expenses incurred as a result of your injuries.

How Compensation Could Help You

Payouts are calculated based on the pain and suffering your injury has caused you, whether you’re able to work and what care is required to aid your recovery with the ultimate aim being to put you back in the position you would have been in, but for your injury. Compensation therefore takes into account:

  • Physiotherapy/medical expenses
  • Lost earnings
  • Changes to accommodation
  • Transportation requirements
  • Care and assistance needed

This means that your final compensation amount could be much more than the average figures we’re able to show you on our compensation calculator. To find out a more accurate estimation of what you may be entitled to, get in touch with our solicitors.
