Handling Shoulder Injuries That Stem From Someone Else’s Negligence
Shoulder injuries can occur in many situations, even in those that may not seem dangerous. Whether playing sports, lifting objects, working or performing another action, pain may be the first sign of a shoulder injury. If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else, we can help.
We at the Pasadena-based of McNally Law Office provide comprehensive injury representation to clients who have suffered shoulder injuries and other injuries in car accidents, slip-and-falls, work accidents and other types of incidents. Using more than 25 years of experience, our attorney works to see that you get the compensation you deserve for the pain and suffering, lost wages and medical bills that you incur as the result of the accident.
Types Of Shoulder Injuries
Whether the arm is hyperextended, impacted by an object or affected in another way, an injury can result. There are many different injuries that can impact the shoulder’s mobility, including:
- Broken bones that make up the shoulder joint
- Shoulder dislocation
- Separated shoulder
- Rotator cuff tears
- Shoulder cartilage tears
- Inflammation of the bursa (bursitis)
- Broken collarbone
Some of the symptoms of a shoulder injury may be subtle. There is typically pain, with movement and with rest, weakness in the arm, an inability to raise your arm over your head and often crunching sounds (crepitus) when moving the shoulder. If you have any of these or other symptoms in your shoulder after an accident, you should immediately seek evaluation and treatment from a doctor.
Your Life With A Shoulder Injury
Recovery from a shoulder injury can be slow. They are not often serious and rarely life-threatening, but they can impact your life in numerous ways. You may be unable to play with your children, continue to work as you did before the injury, help around the house and more. Surgery, physical therapy and other treatment modalities may help and even cure the injury. However, many people often deal with a lifetime of consistent or intermittent issues with their shoulders after an injury.
