Rotator Cuff Injuries
Shoulders are central to the performance of many tasks, whether it is lifting in the workplace, gardening, playing sports, carrying your children or even cooking. Injuries to the shoulder also 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.
Day to day life can be dramatically affected by the pain and it can prevent you from working, pursuing hobbies or performing simple everyday tasks. If it can be proved that the injury was caused by an accident that wasn’t your fault, then there may be a high chance of pursuing a successful 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 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.
There are other ways the injury could occur but if you believe that the injury was caused because you were not properly trained or protected by your employer, or there was a failure to adhere to health and safety regulations and you were put at risk unnecessarily, you may have a valid claim for compensation.
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 may be entitled to, you should contact a solicitor.
How to claim
If you believe that you have a claim, then it is advisable to get in touch with a solicitor who specialises in personal injury claims. Compensation may be payable if can be proven a third party was to blame.
