Broken Shoulder Compensation Claims Information

Shoulder injuries are extremely common throughout all kinds of industries. They are one of most common workplace accidents in the world and can occur through a wide variety of incidents. If you’ve suffered a broken bone, like a shoulder, due to any kind of accident which wasn’t your fault, then you could be eligible to make broken shoulder compensation claims against whoever was responsible.

What many people don’t understand is that a broken bone, especially a shoulder, can lead to a whole range of potential complications either as short or long-term. That’s why there are many people who do not choose to seek compensation if they’ve suffered a shoulder injury, like a broken shoulder. In many cases, the injured party may not believe that there is anyone who can be blamed for their injury.

What are the Causes of a Broken Shoulder Personal Injury Claim?

So long as you’ve broken your shoulder due to someone else’s negligence, aggression or lack of care, you could be able to make a compensation claim against them. Just some of the most common personal injury claims are caused by workplace accidents, road traffic collisions, trips & falls and aggressive behaviour.

 

What are the Symptoms of a Broken Shoulder?

A broken shoulder, otherwise known as a fractured humerus, can cause incredible pain and, in some cases, make it impossible to move your arm. There are several different areas which can become fractured and diagnosed as a fractured humerus. If you’ve suffered a fracture in any of the following areas, then you may be eligible to make broken shoulder compensation claims: Greater or less tuberosity, humeral head and the shaft of the humerus.

How is a Broken Shoulder Treated?

After your broken shoulder has been diagnosed by your healthcare professional, usually via an X-ray, you will be supplied with a sling. These collar and cuff slings will prevent too much strain from being placed on the arm and help it to heal in the correct position. It is important that you are advised never to put anything under your arm to help with its weight, as that can cause the injury to heal in the wrong position.

How Serious Can a Broken Humerus Be?

In some instances, a broken humerus can lead to a wide range of long-term complications including impaired movement and regular or intermittent pain. While most of these injuries will heal themselves in a relatively short period of time so long as you receive effective treatment, these long-lasting symptoms can cause a great deal of discomfort.

Unfortunately, there are dozens of different ways to break your shoulder.
