    Compensation for shoulder injuries from a fall


    Injuring your shoulder in a fall could lead to serious, life-changing injuries which may mean you’re unable to return to work. When you fall from height, your shoulder can take the weight of the fall and there are three main parts of your shoulder which could be injured:

    • Rotator cuff – This is the part of the shoulder which joins to your upper arm
    • Bones in your shoulder – The scapula (shoulder blade), humerus or clavicle (collar bone) could be fractured
    • Brachial plexus – This contains nerves which connect your spine, neck and shoulders

    Shoulder injuries from a fall could include a torn rotator cuff, damage to the nerves of the brachial plexus or broken bones in your shoulder. Not only are these injuries incredibly painful, they could also affect your mobility, quality of life and ability to do your job. You may find you need months off work after sustaining shoulder injuries from a fall, and it is not uncommon to require physiotherapy to recover from your injuries. If somebody else is to blame for your accident, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation, and the amount of compensation you’ll receive will take into account.

    Have you injured your shoulder?

    Shoulder injuries from a fall can affect the neck and back, as all three are connected by the brachial plexus nerves. These types of injuries can be debilitating and could make it hard to stay mobile or return to work. The result? You may suffer loss of earnings which could affect you and your family financially. But you don’t need to suffer in silence if you have injured your shoulder in an accident at work. If your employer is to blame, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
