Claiming compensation for a shoulder injury

When it comes to performing a wide range of daily tasks, our shoulder is one of the most important parts of our body, and is responsible for a wide range of motions and functions. As one of the most crucial joints, it is responsible for allowing us to perform our job roles successfully, in addition to allowing us to carry, push, pull and move a wide range of different objects, allowing us to successfully perform a range of tasks.

Due to its important nature, any injuries in this area can have a very serious impact on our ability to perform common daily tasks and this can be especially tough if you are suffering as the result of negligence on the part of another person. If this is the case then you could be eligible for a personal injury compensation. 

How can I injure my shoulder?

When it comes to shoulder injuries there’s a number of ways that we could incur these at the negligence of another person and these include:

  • Sporting injuries – if you are injured in a sporting competition through the direct negligence of another person
  • Trips and falls from height – if you trip or fall over in your workplace or a private area due to the negligence of another person or your employer
  • Carrying or pushing heavy loads – if you are required to carry, push or pull heavy loads without the correct training for your job
  • Incorrect lifting – if you are lifting items at work but haven’t been given the correct training or the loads you are lifting are too heavy then you could make a compensation claim.

Who can I claim against?

When it comes to making a personal injury claim for a shoulder injury there are a number of people that you could make a claim against. If you have been injured at the hands of another person or due to a sporting injury then you may be eligible to make a claim against that person. In contrast, if you have been injured in the workplace then your compensation claim could be lodged against your employer if they have been negligent towards you and not provided you with a safe working environment or the appropriate training.
