What is a shoulder injury compensation claim? 

There are a number of different types of injury that can happen to the shoulder, ranging in severity, and all of which could entitle you to financial compensation through a shoulder injury claim. 
 
Some of the most common types of shoulder injuries that our expert personal injury solicitors see from clients on a regular basis are:- 
 
Fractured shoulder injury claims 
Dislocated shoulder compensation claims 
Fractures collarbone claims 
Frozen shoulder compensation claims 
Lateral tear injury clams

What are the most common types of shoulder injury claim? 

The shoulder is a complex and important structure, which can sustain a huge number of different injuries. On top of this, it can also be injured in a wide variety of different accidents. 
 
Some of the most common accidents that lead to shoulder injury compensation claims are:- 
 
Road Traffic Accidents- car crashes and road traffic accidents can put an extreme force on the entire body, including the spine, neck, head, and shoulders. This often leads to whiplash nerve injuries, that most commonly affect the neck and spine, but can also have an impact on the shoulders. Common symptoms of this include stiff, painful shoulders and tingling in the hands and lower arms. See a full overview of whiplash injuries, here, and road traffic accidents, here. 
 
Slips, Trips, and Falls- Slips and trips can happen anywhere and everywhere in the outside world. Whether you have slipped on a wet supermarket floor, or fallen on an uneven footpath or pothole, then you could well have taken the weight of the fall on your hands and upper body, causing a huge impact on the shoulders. 
 
Accidents at Work- Many workplaces can be dangerous for many reasons. It could be a shoulder strain from incorrect lifting due to inadequate training, construction accidents from falling off scaffolding, or burns and lacerations from defective equipment, you could have a shoulder injury compensation claim. 

How much money could I get for my shoulder injury compensation claim? 

As with all kinds of personal injury and medical negligence claims, there is no one answer that our solicitors can give to this question. Here at MG Legal, all of our clients, and all of their claims, are different. 
 
They vary widely depending on the severity and prognosis of the shoulder injury. In order to ascertain the prognosis, or period for recovery, MG Legal’s shoulder injury compensation claim solicitors will send you to an expert medical expert in order for a full detailed medical report to be created for your shoulder injuries. 
 
While the finical compensation amounts will vary widely depending on the outcome of this report, our expert personal injury solicitors have drafted a table on the estimated financial compensation payout for different shoulder injuries. This was made with reference to the Judicial College’s guideline for the assessment of general damages in personal injury cases. It is always important to recognise that these suggested amounts are regarding the compensation available for the injuries themselves only, and do not take into consideration other aspects, such as loss of earnings or care costs. These fall under special damages, which can be worked out and awarded on top of any general damages. For a full overview of general and special damages, see here. 
Shoulder injury type: 
Expected financial compensation: 
Severe shoulder injuries- often associated with neck injuries and involving some degree of damage to the brachial plexus (the complex network of nerves within the shoulder that is responsible for carrying the movement and the sensory signals from the spinal cord along to the arms and hands) and resulting in disability.  
£18,020 to £45,070 
Serious shoulder injuries- dislocation of the shoulder and some damage to the lower part of the brachail plexus causing significant pain in both the shoulder and the neck, some aching in the elbow, and some sensory symptoms in the lower forearm and hand area. 
£11,980 to £18,020 
Moderate shoulder injuries- such as frozen shoulders with a limited movement ability, as well as discomfort and other symptoms lasting for around two years. Also, any soft tissue injuries that persist beyond the two year mark and leave people with more than minimal symptoms. 
£7,410 to £11,980 
Minor shoulder injuries- such as soft tissue injuries with considerable pain but full recovery. For a recover within less than two years. 
£4,080 to £7,410 
Minor shoulder injuries- as above but with a recovery time less than a year. 
£2,300 to £4,080 
Minor shoulder injuries- same, but with a recovery time below three months.

Are there any time limits for making a shoulder claim? 

Subject to the Limitation Act of 1980, you have three years from the date of your accident to claim personal injury compensation. However, if you did not immediately know about the shoulder injury that you sustained as a result of your accident, you would have three years from the ‘date of knowledge’ when you became aware of the injury. 
 
There are some exceptions to this rule. One is in place for personal injury claims for minors, or those under the age of eighteen. These people have three years from the date of their eighteenth birthday to pursue a personal injury claim. Exceptions also apply if you are making a shoulder injury compensation claim on behalf of someone with limited mental capacity.
