The shoulder has a greater range of motion than any other joint in the human body and is actively involved in many daily activities. Therefore, when a person suffers an injury to his or her shoulder, the effects can be life changing and possibly career ending. If the shoulder injury victim is unable to recover the full use of the affected arm, he or she may be facing long‑term disability.
While some shoulder injuries are relatively minor and involve only bruises and contusions, others are more serious and require extensive medical care, physical therapy, and surgery in order to heal correctly.
If you are an accident victim who has suffered any of the following types of shoulder injuries, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Rotator cuff tear
- Torn ligament
- Torn shoulder muscles
- Dislocated shoulder
- Separated shoulder
