When you suffer an injury in an accident that was someone else’s fault, you can claim compensation. Accident Advice Helpline deals with countless shoulder injury claims.
What causes a shoulder injury?
Virtually any accident can cause a shoulder injury. If you have a road accident, you could damage your shoulder. You could also damage your shoulder if you lift and carry heavy objects, which is a task that many people carry out at work every day.
Slips, trips and falls can also cause injury – if you have a hard fall on to a concrete surface, for example, you could cause damage to your shoulder.
What kinds of shoulder injury are there?
Many shoulder injuries we deal with involve damage to the tissues of the shoulder. Many people are familiar with the term “frozen shoulder”, and we certainly come across this type of injury regularly. Sometimes, the injury limits movement of the joint, or involves dislocation.
A shoulder injury can cause a great deal of discomfort and pain, which will need to be remedied by medical care, such as physiotherapy. People often need to take painkillers and stay away from strenuous activity when they have a shoulder injury.
Why shoulder injury claims should be made
When people have a shoulder injury, the effect on their lives – and those close to them – can be huge. If the injury is serious, time off work is needed – sometimes for a long period. It can also impact upon people’s mental health causing anxiety and depression, as well as the obvious physical health effects.
Money is needed for extras such as a home help or childcare, as well as the taxis and buses that are needed to get to and from hospital appointments.
Shoulder injury claims are definitely worth looking into, so people can recover their costs and receive recompense for their suffering!
