Shoulder Injury Compensation Claims

Common causes of shoulder injuries

An injured shoulder could be serious in the long term, and could occur more easily than you might think.

For example, some types of repetitive strain injury (RSI) can cause damage to your shoulder. If your work involves sitting at a desk for long periods, is your seat positioned at the right height? If not you could damage one or both shoulders. If you do a lot of fetching and carrying, this could also cause shoulder damage.

Shoulder X-Ray - Personal Injury Claim Evidence

Another type of shoulder injury is when problems occur during labour for babies which can result in conditions such as Erb's Palsy.

Have you suffered a shoulder injury due to an accident that wasn't your fault in the last 3 years? You could be entitled to make a no win no fee personal injury compensation claim.

What if my shoulder injury is work-related?

By law your employer has a legal duty to provide a safe working environment for its employees and as such you may make a claim against your employer if they fail to do so and you suffer a shoulder injury.
