Rotator cuff injuries

A shoulder injury can impact every part of our life. It may impede us from performing an endless list of daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning, driving, working and caring for our children etc. This is mainly because shoulder injuries often lead to pain in other areas of the body – for example, the back, arm or hand – and this can limit a person’s capabilities immensely.

The rotator cuff is a set of tendons and muscles holding together your shoulder and arm. A rotator cuff tear or sprain can leave an incredibly painful and weak sensation in your shoulder. Sometimes the pain can be felt down your arm, making moving and sleeping at night very hard. These injuries are often the result of car accidents or workplace accidents.

The pain can affect daily life radically. It can inhibit you from carrying out hobbies, working, or performing day-to-day duties. You are likely to have a claim for personal injury if it can be demonstrated that your injury was caused by an accident that wasn’t your fault.

Older people who have endured wear and tear above and beyond the norm are usually the most prone to rotator cuff injuries. People working in employment where this region of the body is subjected to repetitive strain are at the greatest danger of developing this injury.

What are the causes of rotator cuff injuries?

Causes of injury may include:

  • Pulling an object that is too heavy or employing an inaccurate pulling method
  • Directly falling on the shoulder or using an arm to break your fall
  • Lifting an object that is too heavy or employing an inaccurate method of lifting

If you suspect that your rotator cuff injury happened due to your employer’s negligence, you may have a legitimate claim for compensation. You may not have been correctly trained or safeguarded by your employer. Additionally, their inability to adhere to health and safety laws may have unnecessarily placed you in a hazardous environment. In any of these cases, we advise that you contact a solicitor with expertise in personal injury claims as soon as possible.

How much compensation can I claim?

All cases are unique so compensation can vary considerably. However, based on historical cases you could expect to receive anything in the ballpark region of £10,180 to £15,300. To get an accurate evaluation of your specific case you should contact a solicitor.

How to claim

You should contact a personal injury solicitor if you suspect that you have a valid claim. You may be entitled to compensation if you can prove that a third party was responsible for your injury.
