Shoulder Injury

If you are experiencing pain and can answer yes to any of the questions below then you should seek qualified medical attention from your local doctor who may refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon for assessment :-

  • Is the joint stiff or painful?
  • Is rotation of your arm restricted compared to normal?
  • Does it feel like the joint could pop out of its socket?
  • Do you lack strength in the area?

This problem is a frequent consequence of motor vehicle collisions and workplace accidents especially those involving lifting heavy items. In both of these cases it is likely that a third party will be wholly or partially responsible in negligence and if that is the case then it is advisable to see a lawyer in order to investigate the possibility of a shoulder injury claim for compensation.

There can be some quite serious damage caused to this part of the body which may cause long-term problems and disability resulting in substantial financial losses mostly relating to loss of future wages and loss of lifestyle. If this problem was caused as a result of an accident that was not wholly your fault then you should start a shoulder injury claim however there are time limits and you should not delay taking legal advice.

The general rule on time limits is that a claim for personal injury should be settled or proceedings should have been issued in a court of law within 3 years of the event giving rise to the injury. There are exceptions to the general rule and in addition the court does have a discretion, which is rarely used, to extend the available time :-

  • time does not start running until the potential claimant attains the age of 18 years
  • time does not run against the mentally disabled until full mental capacity is regained
  • time does not start to run until the discovery of a substantial injury

Injuries that are commonly associated with this area of the body, often caused in a traumatic accident include :-

  • sprains
  • tendonitis
  • bursitis
  • impingement syndrome
  • frozen shoulder
  • separated shoulder
  • dislocation
  • fractures
  • rotator cuff syndrome
  • brachial plexus injuries
