The incidence of rotator cuff injuries in London, and who is most at risk


The majority of rotator cuff injuries in London are down to rotator cuff tendinitis and rotator cuff tears. These injuries can happen to anyone at any time. However, the people most likely to suffer from these injuries are sportsmen and women, whose sport regularly involves the raising of an arm above shoulder level, and employees involved in manual handling in the workplace.

With the latter category of people, if it is their employer who is to blame for the injury, the victim can employ us here at Accident Advice Helpline to raise a claim for compensation.

Rotator cuff tendinitis, and tear

Whereas rotator cuff tendinitis can occur in any one of any age, rotator cuff tears are more prevalent in those over 40 years of age. This is because one of the major causes of rotator cuff tears is something called rotator cuff impingement syndrome, a condition whereby the tendon repeatedly rubs against the shoulder bone and this leads to fraying, and eventually tearing.

The employer’s duty of care

Any business that employs staff, has a duty of care to that staff to ensure they are able to work in an environment where risk has been minimised or negated. This is done by carrying out risk assessments for each of these duties and operations that staff must perform. Where risks are identified, procedures should be changed to eliminate those risks, to mitigate them, and special PPE issued for personal protection.

Claiming compensation for rotator cuff injuries in London

If any employer fails to discharge their duty of care to their employees, and as a result injuries occur, such as rotator cuff injuries in London based businesses, or indeed in businesses anywhere around the UK, the injury victim is entitled by law to claim compensation.

4 Important factors

There are four 4 important factors to be considered before you raise any personal injury claim. These are:

  • The blame for the injury must lie firmly on someone else’s doorstep
  • The severity of the injury must warrant compensation
  • Medical proof of the injury will be required
  • The injury must have occurred within the last 3 years
