    Claiming for a shoulder injury


    Considering claiming for a shoulder injury?

    Although shoulder injuries aren’t always considered serious, they can easily become chronic conditions so it’s essential that you get the right medical treatment. If left untreated, shoulder injuries can worsen considerably and patients can face months of pain and discomfort.

    The impact a shoulder injury can have on your life shouldn’t be underestimated. If your movement is restricted you may be unable to exercise, drive or even use a computer. This could limit your ability to work, travel and perform daily tasks.

    In serious cases, you may even struggle to perform everyday activities, such as getting dressed, cooking a meal or washing your hair. Although your injury may respond well to treatment, you could find that you’re significantly incapacitated for weeks or months whilst the injury heals.

    Taking legal action

    Due to the impact this type of injury can have, you should certainly consider claiming personal injury compensation. Whilst compensation won’t magically heal your injuries, it could help you to cope whilst you’re recovering and it will ensure that you don’t suffer financially.

    In order to consider claiming for a shoulder injury, you’ll need to show that you’re eligible to make a compensation claim. For example, you’ll need to prove that you weren’t responsible for your injuries and that they were caused by someone or something else.

    In addition to this, you will need to have obtained medical help for your injuries prior to making your claim. If you’ve undergone surgery, been prescribed specific medications or have received physiotherapy, for example, this could enable you to move forward with your claim.

    If you’re planning on claiming for a shoulder injury, you should also be aware of the time limits involved. Although it can be tempting to put off making a claim whilst you’re recovering, claimants are normally only given three years to take legal action so it may be best to get started as quickly as you can.
