How much compensation can I expect for a shoulder injury might be on your mind right now
When people make personal injury compensation claims, one of the first questions they ask a solicitor is how much compensation can I expect? The answer is that no one can give a definite answer to this question because there are so many things to take into consideration.
First of all there are different types of injuries, some more severe than others, and the amounts of compensation are laid out in broad bands, so that you could get the minimum of compensation in a band, or the maximum, or somewhere in between the two. It all depends on your injury.
How much compensation can I expect for a shoulder injury?
Let’s consider the question: how much compensation can I expect for a shoulder injury? This serves as an example to explain why there is no way of being able to say precisely how much you could get in compensation for your injury or illness.
For severe injuries to the shoulder, where there is damage to the nerves which connect with the arms and hands, and part of the shoulder, then you could expect to receive between £12,600 and £31,500. There is a big difference here between the maximum and minimum amount, and your medical report would determine where your injury came on the scale for this type of compensation.
For serious shoulder injuries, perhaps when the shoulder is dislocated and there is nerve damage which leads to lack of sensation and pain, you might expect to receive between £8,400 and £12,600.
For a moderate shoulder injury which could be expected to be healed within two years, such as frozen shoulder, which causes loss of movement in the arm with pain, you could get between £5,150 and £8,400.
For a minor injury with some damage to the soft tissue in the shoulder, when there is expected to be a total recovery within two years, you could get between £2,850 and £5,150. If recovery only takes up to one year then you would expect to get a maximum of £2,850.
