    Did you suffer dislocated shoulder nerve damage?


    Did you know the shoulder is the most versatile joint in the human body? It should be, when you think about it, because it enables you to move your arm in virtually every direction. However, this also means it is the joint most prone to dislocating, which means the bone of the arm can pop out of the socket in the shoulder. While you may see people doing this in fictional programmes and popping the arm back in themselves in mere seconds with no bother at all, it doesn’t happen like that in life. Indeed, it is possible you may suffer from dislocated shoulder nerve damage following the dislocation injury.

    The nature of a dislocation means you can suffer a lot of pain with it. You can also quite easily damage nerves, tendons and even ligaments in your shoulder. If you do, you can end up struggling to get back to normal.

    How much would a claim for dislocated shoulder nerve damage be worth?

    Nerve damage means you may experience pins and needles in your hand or arm, or even just your fingers. Even when you recover from the injury, you may still experience a loss of feeling. If so, you should seek advice from your GP as they may be able to suggest a solution.

    In the worst-case scenario, you might end up with niggling pain and discomfort for a long time after your shoulder dislocation. Physio can help, but the exact nature of your treatment will depend on your specific injury.

    If you did have dislocated shoulder nerve damage, you may be able to claim compensation. No two cases are the same and the reason for your injury will be the most important factor in the situation. You must prove a third party’s negligence caused the injury if you want to have a chance of claiming something.
