Shoulder Injuries Compensation Claims
Like any injury a shoulder injury can be very painful and could have quite severe consequences. The shoulder consists of three bones connected by muscles, ligaments and tendons. It is a complex part of the body and can take longer to recover than other areas and once injured, depending on the type of injury can easily become injured again.
A shoulder injury can be anything from ligament damage, muscles injury, bruising, fractures, dislocation and frozen shoulder (also known as adhesive capsulitis), which is a condition where the shoulder becomes stiff reducing movement. The following are some examples of the amount of compensation you could claim:
- minor shoulder injury – up to £5,000
- fractured shoulder – up to £8,000
- serious shoulder injury – up to £12,000
- severe shoulder injury – up to £30,000
The amount of compensation you can claim could be higher depending on recovery time and any other losses you have incurred such as loss of income and medical expenses. A shoulder injury can occur in many ways, the most common of which are:
- road traffic accidents
- sports injuries
- surgical errors
- workplace accidents (such as heavy lifting)
- slips, trips and falls
If you would like to make a shoulder injury compensation claim then you should seek the advice of our personal injury solicitors** in Manchester within three years of the date of the accidents. We will assess the merits of your case before taking it on and then carry out our work on a no win no fee* basis, also known as a conditional fee agreement (cfa). Under a cfa legal fees are only payable if your case is successful in which case these fees will be paid out by the negligent party’s insurance company. Cfas were introduced to ensure that everyone, regardless of their financial means, could get access to justice. Please note that under a cfa you will still be liable for disbursements such as court fees and barrister’s fees.
