Causes of Shoulder Injuries

Shoulder injury claims can stem from numerous types of accidents, including:

Types of Shoulder Injuries

Indiana personal injury attorney, Richard Truitt, has handled various types of shoulder injury claims. Common shoulder injuries include:

  • Muscle tears
  • Dislocated shoulders
  • Devastating injuries that necessitate arthroscopic surgery
  • Rotator cuff injuries

Rotator Cuff Shoulder Injuries

An injury to your rotator cuff may become immediately apparent after an accident or symptoms can develop gradually within weeks to months after sustaining the injury. When symptoms fail to immediately develop, the rotator cuff will gradually deteriorate as the muscle is used and aggravated.

Treatment for a rotator cuff injury depends on its severity: simple muscle inflammation can be addressed with at-home remedies, such as pain relief, ice application and rest. More serious tears require arthroscopic surgery.

Compensation for Shoulder Injuries

Even minor shoulder injuries can result in a lifetime of pain and discomfort. If another party’s negligence or misconduct left you with a shoulder injury, compensation for your damages may include:

  • Physical and mental suffering
  • Medical expenses, which may include pain medication, doctor visits, physical therapy, and necessary surgeries
  • Loss of earnings
  • Diminished earning potential
  • Permanent scarring

Shoulder Pain Pump and Shoulder Injuries

Shoulder injuries that necessitate arthroscopic surgery require the administration of medication into the shoulder joint following surgery. While some shoulder pain pump models function properly, it has been proven that some of these medical devices are defective.

If you have been prescribed a shoulder pain pump, you may be entitled to additional compensation for your damages.
