    Still suffering from dislocated shoulder after-effects?


    Have you dislocated your shoulder? You may be surprised to learn that this is not an uncommon injury; in fact, the shoulder is one of the most commonly dislocated joints in the body, due to the fact that the arm sits in a very shallow socket. The good news? Most dislocated shoulders heal nicely within 12 to 16 weeks of being popped back into their socket. Yet there are still a small minority of people who suffer from dislocated shoulder after-effects including pain and symptoms that last for weeks, months or even years. If you are suffering from dislocated shoulder after-effects, it’s important to see your GP, as they may be able to refer you to an orthopaedic specialist or recommend minor surgery to help you regain mobility in your shoulder.

    Can dislocated shoulder after-effects affect my personal injury claim?

    It may be that pain from a dislocated shoulder is affecting your quality of life months or years after your accident. If you’re unable to go to work – for example if you work in a physical job such as on a building site or as a joiner, or if you work as a taxi driver or courier and you’re unable to drive – then you could find you are entitled to claim personal injury compensation for your loss of earnings. It might be that being off work has led to anxiety and depression, and this will be taken into account when Accident Advice Helpline processes your claim. The more your injuries have affected your life, the more compensation you could be entitled to claim, as a general rule.

    We process each and every claim on an individual basis, which means that although we can’t tell you exactly how much compensation you could get, you could take the 30-second test on our website to get an idea of how much you could receive, if your claim is successful.

    Three years to make a claim

    If somebody else’s negligence led to your injury, you are entitled to compensation, whether your accident occurred in a public place, whilst playing sports or even at work. There’s a three-year time limit in place for all claims, so it’s a good idea to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible after your accident. Just call us today on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile) to find out more about making a claim.
