How Much Compensation For Shoulder Injuries
Shoulder injuries happen frequently following an accident. It is, therefore, common for injured parties to ask how much compensation for shoulder injuries if they have suffered as a result of someone else.
Shoulder injury compensation can be broken down into severe, serious, moderate and minor shoulder injuries when looking at compensation amounts. Below is a guide as to how much you can expect to receive from a shoulder injury.
- Severe shoulder injuries can result in disability on some occasions. These types of injuries often occur alongside neck injuries. Compensation amounts begin at £15,300 and go up to £38,280. This includes serious brachial plexus injuries
- If your shoulder injury is considered serious but not as advanced as the above then your compensation amount will be between £10,180 and £15,300. Symptoms in this category include a dislocation of the shoulder, aching and sensory problems in the forearm and hand. It may also be that grip, strength and movement have been lost and possibly permanent damage
- £6,290 up to £10,180 is the range of compensation you are likely to receive if you have suffered a frozen shoulder and the symptoms have lasted for 2 years or more
- Minor shoulder injuries are those which result in a complete recovery in most cases. If your recovery has been completed within two years you can expect to receive around £3,470 to £6,290. If you have recovered with a year then £1,950 – £3,470 is likely to be the compensation fee you will receive.
