How to start a shoulder injury claim
After you have received medical treatment and been assessed by a doctor or specialist, we recommend that you contact a law firm to discuss where you stand legally regarding a claim for compensation.
The very nature of shoulder injuries means that in lots of cases, there will be a period of time in which you are unable to work. In some serious cases, you may be signed off work for several months without pay.

How much compensation can I claim for a shoulder injury?
Every claim is different, however compensation awards for personal injury claims are based on a set of national guidelines called the Judicial College Guidelines. These guideline are published for the assessment of general damages in personal injury cases.
The latest set of guidelines (the 15th edition) were published at the end of 2019. Guideline amounts for shoulder injuries are as follows:
- Severe shoulder injuries, resulting in significant disability – £12,600 to £31,500
- Serious shoulder injuries that cause a weakness of grip or injury that leads to restricted shoulder movement – £8,400 to £12,600
- Moderate shoulder injuries, including frozen shoulder with limitation of movement and discomfort with symptoms persisting for about two years – £5,150 to £8,400
Every injury is different and your claim may be worth more or less than these figures quoted. These guidelines are purely used as an estimate.
Claims are worth significantly more when “special damages” are factored in. Special damages include loss of earning claims and costs associated with long term care and rehabilitation. Special damages can increase the value of a claim by hundreds of thousands of pounds and in some cases, millions of pounds.
