    Do you know what caused your dislocated shoulder injury?

    A dislocated shoulder injury is uncomfortable and requires immediate medical attention to put right. It’s normally quite easy to tell if you have dislocated your shoulder, because it will look completely different to how it normally does. You probably won’t be able to move it either.

    The injury can happen in all manner of accidents, including falls and collisions. Usually, a heavy impact to the shoulder will cause it to occur. If you have had this injury recently, you will very likely know what caused it and whether you were to blame or whether someone else was. However, it’s not always as easy to tell.

    How does blame factor into the situation?

    Sometimes we may make the wrong decisions and suffer an injury because of it. For example, you might risk crossing the road at a point other than at a crossing, and be hit by a car because you tried to save time. That would likely be your own fault, which is why most of us take care to cross safely.

    But supposing you were injured while crossing the road when the pedestrian lights told you it was safe to cross? Perhaps a driver decided to go through the lights to save time, and ended up hitting you. In another example, an accident at work could potentially be caused by someone neglecting to follow proper health and safety rules. If this is the case, your dislocated shoulder could have been caused by another party,

    Could you claim compensation for your dislocated shoulder injury?

    It’s possible if you know how the injury happened and you suspect a third party is to blame. This can be very easy to figure out, but at other times it may not be as easy at all. That’s why so many people decide to seek proper legal advice, so they can understand their position and what happened to them.
