Experts in Shoulder Injury Compensation Claims
We work with shoulder injury compensation solicitors that are experts in their fields.
Shoulder Injury Compensation Solicitors
If you or a family member has suffered a shoulder injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may have a right to claim compensation.
Our solicitors know a serious shoulder injury can also create a devastating effect on your life. Not only can it leave you in physical agony, but it may also compromise your financial situation. Accordingly, you may require changes to your home, extra care, rehabilitation, and support if you’re unable to work.
The Compensation Experts work with solicitors that operate on a no win no fee basis. If you lose your compensation claim, you won’t face any scary costs.
Typically, customers pay 25% including VAT of the compensation amount that is recovered by our third-party law firms, although this is subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be more or less than this. For example, you may be required to pay an additional fee for other costs such as after-the-event (ATE) insurance. Termination fees may apply.
How the Shoulder Injury Compensation Claim Process Works
- You must make certain that you’re eligible to make a shoulder injury claim.
- The details of your individual case will be assessed by one of our advisors. Next, we can connect you – if you wish – with a suitable shoulder compensation solicitor. In so, you will begin discussing the facts and possible outcomes of your claim.
- Your solicitor gathers the evidence and works on your case. They’ll also notify the negligent party that you’ve begun claim proceedings. Subsequently, your solicitor will negotiate the case on your behalf.
- Throughout the process, we keep you informed and never add to the strain. It’s very simple: If you win your case, you’ll get the compensation you deserve. But if you lose, you still pay nothing as a result of the no win no fee agreement that each of our solicitors offers.
Types of Accident for Shoulder Injury Compensation
When you make a shoulder injury claim, we’ll take financial losses, pain and suffering, physical therapy support and other special damages into account. Shoulder injury compensation case studies suggest that many claims result from injuries like:
- The so-called frozen shoulder;
- Brachial plexus injuries;
- Shoulder blade bruising;
- Rotator cuff tears;
- Soft tissue injury;
- Range of motion difficulties;
- Shoulder separations.
A shoulder injury can also happen at any time, such as:
- Slipping, tripping, or falling over the pavement, in the supermarket, or at home
- At work. For instance, you might fall from height, experience injury from manual handling, or suffer an accident due to defective machinery.
- In a road traffic accident, whether you’re a pedestrian, driving, on a bus, cycling, or riding a motorbike
The personal injury solicitors we work with handle these and many more shoulder issues from negligence. For an injury at work, road traffic accident and more, we’re able to assist.
Calculating Your Compensation
The problem with a shoulder injury compensation calculator is it tries to promise what your case entitles you to. But, in doing so, it ignores how each case is different in subtle ways; because each claim is always unique. Speak with our friendly team today to find out how much compensation for a shoulder injury you could receive.
The solicitors we work with always strive to get you the maximum amount of shoulder injury compensation. To do this, it always helps to provide as much information as possible in your initial call. Such as:
- The extent of your injury or injuries, including any medical reports, evidence of doctor visits or medication you are taking.
- Any work earnings missed as a result of your injury.
- Future losses you reasonably expect to encounter as a result of your injury. For instance, any loss of earnings, property, or assets.
- Any other costs you’re also claiming for as a result of your injury. Some claimants will put forward claims for new vehicles during car accident claims, for example. Others may claim some heavy costs, such as medication, hospital visits, travel expenses or domestic help that becomes necessary as a result of the accident.
How much compensation for shoulder injury?
As far as the average compensation for a shoulder injury goes, you can expect to receive anywhere in the region of £2,000/3,000 – 45,000+,* depending on the severity of your pain and the losses incurred. However, The Compensation Experts will treat your case uniquely and on its own merits, to try and win you no less than you deserve.
*Based on 2021 Judicial College Guidelines.
To give you a rough idea of how much you might be able to claim, we’ve outlined the general shoulder injury compensation pay outs for a frozen shoulder, dislocated shoulder, and broken shoulder.
Frozen shoulder compensation: frozen shoulder means your shoulder is completely stiffened for an extended period, and it’s painful to move. If this continues for up to two years, you may be able to claim up to £10,000* in shoulder compensation.
*Based on 2021 Judicial College Guidelines.
Dislocated shoulder compensation: if you’ve dislocated your shoulder in an accident that was due to the negligence of another party, you may be owed up to £15,000* in damages.
*Based on 2021 Judicial College Guidelines.
Broken shoulder compensation: if you suffer a broken shoulder that requires surgery and results in a lasting disability, you may be able to claim the maximum amount. You will also be owed more, depending on your pain and suffering.
What Are Personal Injury Claims?
When it comes to shoulder injury compensation, it’s important to understand what personal injury claims actually are. Personal injury claims and accident claims usually fall into one of the following categories.
In short, public liability involves an accident that takes place in a public place.
The owner of any place the public visits is sworn to a duty of care that ensures all reasonable steps are taken to prevent an accident. That applies whether it’s a council-owned government building or a corporate-owned shopping centre.
Occupiers liability is similar to a public liability accident, but in a private space. From private hospital negligence and swimming pools that aren’t cleaned to private property visits, we can give your claim the expertise it requires.
Work accidents or illness claims also cover stress at work and mental illness claims. Accordingly, we can help you if you’re enduring psychological stress in the workplace, whether it’s as a result of bullying, unreasonable workloads or more.
Road traffic accident
Finally, there are the claims for road traffic accidents (RTAs), or car accidents, which occur on a UK road or motorway. Causes tend to include:
- Another driver’s error or loss of concentration whilst driving.
- Poor driving conditions caused by inadequate street lighting or large potholes.
- Unclear or covered signs along the roadway.
