Injuring your shoulder at work may mean pain, weeks with your arm in a sling, surgery, or physical therapy. This can result in costly doctor visits, time out of work, and increased possibilities for future injuries. If you hurt your shoulder at work, we at McCravy, Newlon, and Sturkie Law firm want to make sure you get the compensation you deserve for medical bills and lost wages.
- Rotator Cuff Injuries: In 2008, nearly two million people in the United States received medical attention for rotator cuff issues. A torn rotator cuff can result instantly if you fall on your extended arm or lift heavy objects with jerking motions, or it can occur over time due to recurring stresses. If you injured your rotator cuff on the job, you may have a valid workers’ compensation claim.
- Shoulder Dislocation: Dislocating your shoulder can mean severe pain, losing use of your arm for several weeks, or even surgery. Some common ways of dislocating your shoulder include falling on your outstretched arm, a sudden jerk to your arm, a direct hit to your shoulder, or a forceful reach upward. If you dislocated your shoulder at work or because you slipped and fell, our experienced personal injury attorneys can help you make your case.
