    Compensation for shoulder injury


    Shoulder injuries can be extremely painful and inconvenient. You can injure your shoulder in road traffic accidents, in slips, trips and falls, even in accidents at work. But did you know that you can claim compensation for shoulder injury problems that you suffered in an accident if it was not your fault. People with shoulder injuries sometimes have problems with many normal day to day activities, such as:

    • Sleeping
    • Dressing
    • Washing
    • Cooking
    • Cleaning
    • Gardening
    • Shopping
    • Travelling
    • Caring for children
    • Working

    Claiming compensation for their injury can help victims get help with some of these things, and can let them get back to a normal life as soon as possible.

    Claiming compensation for shoulder injury problems – stage 1

    A good place to start is a personal injury law firm like Accident Advice Helpline. Choose the law firm carefully. It is important that you feel comfortable that they are working in your best interests. Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people make claims for over a decade. They are recommended by consumer champion and TV personality Esther Rantzen. It is probably best to contact them straight after the accident. However, it does not matter if you have not done so because you have up to three years. You can call the advice helpline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on freephone numbers 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile. You will be given an opportunity to use a unique 30 second test, which works out whether your claim is likely to be successful or not. You then decide whether to go ahead.

    Claiming compensation for shoulder injury problems – stage 2

    The next stage is handled for you by Accident Advice Helpline. They allocate you one of their many solicitors from their national network. Your allocated solicitor will have plenty of knowledge and experience in handling compensation for shoulder injury problems. This stage does not involve you having to pay upfront legal costs. This is because of a legal charging system called no win no fee**. In the no win no fee legal charging system, you do not pay any fees at all if your claim for compensation is not successful (i.e. if you do not win).

    Your involvement at this stage is to provide accurate details of your accident; your injuries and your financial losses caused by your injuries. So, it is important for you to keep careful records of these. You may also need to attend one appointment locally with a medical expert who will prepare a medical assessment report about your injuries.

    Claiming compensation for shoulder injury problems – stage 3

    It is usually possible for a shoulder injury claim to be dealt with over the telephone and very few cases actually end up in court so you can relax and let your solicitor handle this stage for you. At the end of the claim your solicitor will inform you how much compensation you have been awarded. The exact amount of compensation that you will get cannot be guaranteed until the end of this stage.
