A broken shoulder is something that not too many people think about when they hear of someone breaking a bone. But the truth is that broken bones are a lot more common than you think. When someone breaks their shoulder, they often seek compensation. Think that broken shoulders aren’t that common? Below are three ways that people can break their shoulder and need to get compensation for it.
A trip or fall can lead to the need for compensation for a broken shoulder
One of the most common ways that people break their shoulders is through tripping and falling. This can happen because of something being left on the floor. It also can happen because of an uneven pavement on the street or because someone has fallen down the steps. It can also happen because of someone slipping on a surface, such as ice or a wet floor that has no warning sign on it. Tripping and falling is one of the most common ways that people will break their bones, like their shoulders and therefore it leads to a lot of lawsuits.
A sporting accident can lead to the need for compensation for a broken shoulder
Another common way that people break their shoulders is through sporting accidents. Sometimes it’s through playing cricket, sometimes it could be through playing football, or even sometimes when you’re playing golf. It also often happens when someone falls off a horse or when they’re doing gymnastics and fall from the apparatus. If the proper precautions haven’t been taken during a sporting event, the person who has injured their shoulder will often bring a lawsuit against the responsible party for their injuries.
A car accident can lead to the need for compensation for a broken shoulder
The third common way that people break their shoulders is when they have been in a car accident. Depending on where the car was hit and where they were sitting in the car when it was hit, a broken shoulder can be a very likely result from a car accident. Broken shoulders often join the ranks of the other injuries that people sustain when they are in a car accident and are often claimed against the people who were responsible in the car accident.
