Rotator Cuff Injuries
We use our shoulders to perform many tasks, whether it is lifting in the workplace, gardening, playing sports, carrying your children or even cooking. Shoulder injuries usually cause pain and limitations in other areas of the body e.g. the back, arm and hand.
The rotator cuff is the collection of tendons and muscles that hold your shoulder and arm together. A tear or sprain to the rotator cuff can leave your shoulder feeling extremely painful and weak. The pain can sometimes be felt down your arm, making it very difficult to move and sleep at night. These injuries can often be suffered during car accidents and or in the workplace.
Your shoulder pain can dramatically affect day-to-day life. It can prevent you from working, pursuing hobbies or performing simple everyday tasks. If it can be proved that your injury was caused by an accident that wasn’t your fault, you are likely to have a personal injury claim.
Those most susceptible to rotator cuff injuries are generally older people who have suffered wear and tear above and beyond the norm. People working in jobs where this area of the body is exposed to repetitive strain are most at risk.
Causes of rotator cuff injuries
Causes of injury can include:
- Falling on the shoulder directly or using an arm to break your fall.
- Lifting an object that is too heavy or performing an incorrect lifting technique.
- Pulling an object that’s too heavy or performing an incorrect pulling technique.
If you believe that your rotator cuff injury occurred because of the negligence of your employer, you may have a valid claim for compensation. It may be the case that your employer didn’t properly train or protect you in the workplace. Alternatively, a failure to adhere to health and safety regulations may have put you at risk unnecessarily. In any of these instances, you should seek the advice of a specialist personal injury lawyer.
Rotator Cuff Injury Compensation Amounts
While every rotator cuff injury claim is different, most individuals who claim for this kind of shoulder injury receive between £10,180 and £15,300. For a more accurate idea of how much you could claim, you should contact a solicitor.
How to claim
If you believe that you have a claim, you should contact a specialist personal injury solicitor. If can be proven a third party was to blame, you may be eligible for compensation.
