If you suffer a dislocated shoulder, the last thing you’ll think of is taking dislocated shoulder pictures. However, if you suffered the injury in an accident someone else ultimately caused you to have, try and take some pictures if you can. Since most of us have a mobile phone capable of taking photos, this is easier than it was in the past.
But why should you take photos? The answer is simple – proof. If you have photos that display your injury and your dislocated shoulder, these can be useful when assessing any compensation award you might be entitled to.
When is the best time to take dislocated shoulder pictures?
If you can get someone to take photos while your shoulder is dislocated, this will indicate what happened. Of course, you will need to go to casualty to have the joint put back in its socket, so there will be medical records to go on as well.
Later, when the bruising and swelling are visible, you can take pictures of these as well. All the evidence you can get to help support your claim will be invaluable. You can usually show the photos to the independent doctor when you see someone as part of your claim, as well as passing them on to your personal injury lawyer.
How can you begin the claims process?
Making a legal claim can be nerve-wracking, but there is no need to worry. You should first make sure you get your shoulder seen to, then you can call for further legal advice when you are recovering. Accident Advice Helpline is always here and providing you make a claim within three years of the date of the accident, you have time on your side.
