The shoulder can be a vulnerable part of the body and there are many personal injury cases where this type of injury has occurred. You may have had an accident at work or you may have slipped or fallen in a public place.
The amount of compensation you receive is reliant on the scope of your injury and how it has affected you. It may be that you have been unable to work, in which case, a lawyer will need to factor in a loss of earnings element to your settlement fees.
In addition, you may have had to pay for medical expenses in relation to your injury. As part of a successful claim, these could also be reimbursed.
The figures below are a guide to how much compensation you can expect:
Level of injury
|Dislocation of the shoulder and damage to the lower part of the brachial plexuscausing pain in shoulder and neck, aching in elbow, sensory symptoms in the forearm and had and weakness of grip.||£10,180 – £15,300|
|Other shoulder injuries such as a frozen shoulder with restricted movement lasting approximately 2 years||£6,290 – £10,180
|Minor shoulder injury with considerable pain but almost complete recovery||Up to £6,290|
