Shoulder Injury Compensation claims
Your shoulder is classed as the most moveable joint in your body but it is also one of the most unstable joints in your body, so why is it classed as being unstable? It is thanks to the fact that the ball of the upper arm is larger than the socket that holds that ball so in order to keep the joint more stable it needs to be anchored by muscles and tendons as well as ligaments.
It is due to the fact that the shoulder is unstable that makes it a site of many common problems, which includes sprains, strains, dislocations, separations, tendinitis, bursitis, torn rotator cuffs, frozen shoulder, fractures and arthritis. Many of these injuries can be caused by trauma to the shoulder as trauma is one of the most common causes of injury to your shoulder.
Some examples of the trauma that can cause you to suffer from a shoulder injury are as follows:
- Road traffic accidents
- Industrial and other workplace accidents
- Sporting accidents
- Public place accidents
These represent just some of the situations that could involve you suffering from a shoulder injury. If you are suffering from a shoulder injury due to an accident that was caused through no fault of your own then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
If your claim for compensation is a success then the amount of compensation that you receive will depend on your initial injuries and how they have affected your life. Some examples of the amount of compensation that you could rightfully be entitled to after suffering from an accident that has left you with a shoulder injury are as follows:
- A minor shoulder injury could be in the region of £1,000 to £3,500
- A moderate shoulder injury could be in the region of £5,000 to £8,000
- A serious shoulder injury with permanent damage could be in the region of £8,000 to £15,000
