Common Accidents that lead to serious shoulder injuries
Over the last 20 years, we have advised clients on a range of accidents that have led to serious shoulder injuries.
Some of the most common include:
- Fractured shoulder resulting from non-fault car accident and motorbike accidents
- Serious shoulder and arm injuries from manual handling related accidents
- Shoulder injuries resulting from accidents in warehouses and factories
- Severe shoulder injuries from accidents involving falling from height on construction sites
- Dislocated shoulders and fractured collarbones resulting from crushing injuries on farms and in agricultural settings
- Serious shoulder accidents as a result of training accidents within the military, resulting in medical discharge
If you have been injured in an accident that is not listed above, please contact us as you may still have grounds for making a claim for your shoulder injury.
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 local specialist 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.
To start a shoulder injury claim with Nigel Askew Solicitors, call and speak to one of our team today.
From the initial information we take from you on the phone, we are usually able to tell you whether we think your potential claim has any prospects of success.
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.
Contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today to discuss your potential claim in more detail.
How long do I have to make a claim?
The law states that you have 3 years from the date of an accident, or a medical diagnosis, to start a claim for compensation.
There are some exceptions to this rule so we recommend you contact us as soon as possible to discuss your particular circumstances so your claim does not fall outside this 3 year claim limitation period.
