    Do you have numbness from a dislocated shoulder?


    It’s easy to assume that if your injury is no longer causing you pain, it must be fully healed – sadly, that’s not always the case. If you have dislocated your shoulder, it may be in the process of healing, but numbness from a dislocated shoulder can be a worrying symptom to experience. This may not necessarily be indicative of serious or permanent damage to your shoulder and the surrounding tissues, ligaments, tendons and nerves, but if you do experience numbness in your shoulder, arm, hands or fingers, you should seek immediate medical advice. This could be indicative of nerve damage where your shoulder is pressing painfully on a nerve.

    Is numbness from a dislocated shoulder preventing you from working?

    Imagine you work in a physical role where you need to lift, carry or manipulate things on a daily basis – for example, perhaps you work on a construction site, maybe you’re a joiner, or you could even be employed as a police officer. For many people, returning to work within a few weeks of a shoulder dislocation is possible. However, if you work in a more physical role or if you are experiencing numbness from a dislocated shoulder, you may need to take more time off work until you are fully recovered. Not only can this affect your finances, it can also lead to anxiety and depression, often caused by money worries.

    But you could be eligible to claim compensation if your accident was caused as a result of somebody else’s negligence – for example if you slipped on a wet floor in the break room at work or if you tripped over boxes of files left lying around in the office. Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis, which means you can afford to make a personal injury claim even if you are in financial difficulties after your accident.

    What if you have suffered permanent damage to your shoulder?

    If you require surgery or if you have sustained permanent damage to your shoulder or arm after your accident, you could be eligible to receive a more substantial personal injury settlement. Accident Advice Helpline will take into account the impact your injury has had on your life both now and in the future, including any lost earnings. You can call us on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to find out if we could help you claim compensation after your accident.
