Frozen Shoulder Compensation

Frozen shoulder is a condition that leads to chronic painful stiffness of the shoulder joint. It occurs when the tissue around the shoulder joint becomes inflamed.

If you are suffering from frozen shoulder following an accident or negligence, you may be eligible to claim compensation. Contact our team today for no-obligation, free advice on your potential claim by calling 0800 342 3206 or get in touch online.

Causes of frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder most commonly occurs following an injury, sustained in a road traffic accident or accident at work.

Repetitive strain injury

Frozen shoulder can be a type of repetitive strain injury that develops following repetitive movement over a prolonged period. It sometimes arises in people who regularly carry out manual handling tasks that involve excessive pressure being placed on the shoulder joint (such as lifting) as part of their job.

If your frozen shoulder has developed because of your working conditions or after an incident such as a car accident or accident at work, you may be entitled to claim frozen shoulder compensation.

Symptoms of frozen shoulder

Frozen shoulder affects the joint, muscles and tendons around the shoulder. It is characterised by pain and stiffness that gradually spreads across the shoulder and, sometimes, down the top of the arm.   Often, frozen shoulder pain makes movement difficult. For some people, it gets worse at night, which can make it hard to sleep.

Claiming frozen shoulder compensation

Frozen shoulder can last for months, or even years, although the pain and stiffness will usually go away eventually. Until this point, your frozen shoulder injury is likely to have a significant impact on your everyday life. You may find it difficult to carry out normal day-to-day activities such as driving, cleaning or getting washed and dressed.

You might also find that you are unable to work for a while. Or you might only be able to do so by working reduced hours or in a different, less manual role. If you have been unable to work as a result of your injury, our solicitors may be able to help you claim for loss of earnings. We can also help you claim for other expenses associated with your injury. These might include as travel expenses to and from doctor’s appointments or the cost of physiotherapy or medication.

ELIGIBILITY CHECKER

HOW DOES THE CLAIMS PROCESS WORK?

Once we have carried out an initial consultation, we will take care of the paperwork required.
 
A letter will be sent to you following an initial consultation with your solicitor. This will be a summary of the discussion you had and will confirm that they are happy to take on your case. It will highlight who will be your contact and estimate how long the process will take. The letter will also detail how you will be funding the case and an estimate of costs. If you need to provide any further information this will be included.
 
A letter will be sent to the defendant, providing details of the accident. The defendant has a fixed period to reply. In their reply, they must state if they are denying or accepting liability. If they do accept liability, your solicitor will endeavour to settle the case out of court.

How much compensation can I claim for frozen shoulder?

As all personal injury cases are unique, the amount of compensation awarded is different for every case. The amount awarded looks at general damages and special damages.

GENERAL DAMAGES

Pain and suffering is the main factor used to determine how much compensation.
 
This is usually determined by a medical examination. This creates a report that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.
 
Our compensation calculator gives a sign of how much you might be entitled to.
Your solicitor will take these details into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded. This will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.

SPECIAL DAMAGES

Compensation takes into account financial losses you have suffered as a result of your injuries. Such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses.
There is a three-year time limit on making a personal injury claim. This time limit begins from the date that the accident occurred. You should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to assess your case.
