    Making claims for a dislocated shoulder and bruising


    Dislocated shoulder bruising is almost certain to occur following this injury. It is a painful thing to experience and you might suspect you have dislocated the joint because it could well look obvious that your shoulder is out of its normal position. Not only do you pop the bone out of the socket it normally sits in, the injury usually also incurs damage to tendons and ligaments surrounding the joint. That means bruising is going to occur to some degree.

    Never try to put your shoulder back into place on your own. This must be done by medical professionals and you will usually be given painkillers before this is done. Additional damage can potentially occur if you try to solve the issue on your own. Keep your shoulder and arm immobile and seek medical help immediately.

    How much could you be awarded for a dislocated shoulder and bruising?

    Every case is different, but if you can prove someone else was negligent and that negligence led to your fall or whatever else happened to injure your shoulder, you stand a good chance of claiming something for your injuries.

    It is a good idea to take photos of your dislocated shoulder and bruising at various stages of the injury. This can help support the medical evidence that will also be required to ensure you can make a successful claim.
