Broken Shoulder Claim
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.
Here at Tylers Solicitors, we specialise in delivering reliable no-win, no-fee legal services following all kinds of accidents. Our professional team of personal injury and workplace accidents lawyers can help you to get the compensation you need to effectively recover from any kind of incident. Whether your injury was a short-term problem, or if you’re currently suffering from the long-term effects of a fractured humerus, get in touch with a team of no-win, no-fee lawyers today.
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 and Falls.
- Aggressive Behaviour.
Any of these could result in personal injury claims against the party responsible. In most circumstances, your injury will not influence the person responsible for causing it. Therefore, it is essential that you make compensation claims to ensure that you receive the justice you need.
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 Lesser Tuberosity.
- Humeral Head.
- Shaft of the Humerus.
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.
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.
Your doctor will tell you how long you need to wear the sling for. Removing the sling too early can result in incorrect healing or additional pain, so it is important that your healthcare provider doesn’t treat you with medical negligence.
Am I Eligible to Make Broken Shoulder Compensation Claims?
If you’ve suffered a broken shoulder due to someone else’s negligence, then you could make personal injury or workplace accident compensation claims against the person responsible. In some cases, you could even make a medical negligence claim if your healthcare professional has failed to correctly diagnose your injury or has recommended ineffective treatment.
Most people tend to believe that, if they’ve tripped or fallen in the street, there isn’t anyone they can make a claim against. However, in some instances, you may be able to make a personal injury claim against the local council for failing to keep the street safe or level for pedestrians. Unfortunately, there are dozens of different ways to break your shoulder. However, it is rare that it isn’t someone else’s fault – either due to:
- Creating an Unsafe Area, without Effective Warnings.
- Neglecting to Provide Adequate Medical Treatment.
- Creating a Dangerous Workplace Environment and Neglecting to Supply Correct Training or Equipment.
