Shoulder Injury Claim

Sustaining an injury to your shoulder can be a debilitating experience and is the cause of many common problems.

The shoulder joint is made up of three bones and are the most moveable joints in the body. The ball of the upper arm is bigger than the socket that holds it and therefore is held in a stable, normal position by muscles, tendons and ligaments.

Types of shoulder injury

There is, unsurprisingly, a lot which can go wrong with the shoulder but to mention just a few:-

1. Sprains
2. Strains
3. Dislocations
4. Torn rotator cuff
5. Tendinitis
6. Fractures

Causes of shoulder injury

There are many ways you can sustain injury to your shoulder and a common cause is sporting activities that involve excessive, repetitive, overhead motion, such as swimming, tennis and weightlifting. You can also sustain injury through less intensive activities such as gardening or hanging curtains.

What about if you have injured your shoulder due to someone else’s negligence? You may have injured yourself in one of the following ways:-

1. Slipped on a wet floor in a supermarket/pub/restaurant.
2. Tripped in a pothole on the pavement or road.
3. Been involved in a road traffic accident.
4. Undertaken manual handling tasks at work without proper training, adequate assistance or a risk assessment being carried out.
5. Carried out repetitive tasks in the work place without sufficient breaks/job rotation/prior risk assessment.
