What Should I Do Next?

Now that you’ve seen that you could be entitled to up to £42,000 in compensation for a serious shoulder injury, the next step is to speak to a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as possible.

After contacting the lawyers in the JMW personal injury team, we will immediately begin investigating your claim. We will start with discussing your personal circumstances with you and capturing the specifics of your case. Using this information, we can then provide a more comprehensive and accurate estimate of your potential compensation award.

When you are happy for us to proceed, we will contact the party responsible for causing your shoulder injury. After gathering the evidence, we will put together a strong case that will give you the best chance of claiming the maximum amount of compensation available to you.

What Can Affect the Value of a Compensation Claim?

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

Shoulder 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 shoulder injury 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 personal injury solicitors.

How Can Compensation Help?

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.

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. That’s why you should start your shoulder injury compensation claim as soon as possible in order to get back to living your life the way that you’re used to.

Types of Shoulder Injury

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

Every injury is different, that’s why we take care to investigate the specifics of your shoulder injury claim in order to build up a comprehensive picture that takes everything into account. It is this attention to detail that can help to strengthen your case and so increase your compensation amount. 

Regardless of how you have been affected by a shoulder injury, if it was caused by somebody else’s negligence, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
