Shoulder Injuries

Minneapolis & St. Paul Shoulder Injury Lawyers

The shoulder is very difficult to function without. If you have sustained a shoulder injury, then you may not be able to move your neck or your arm. You may not be able to sleep at night or engage in everyday activities without being in excruciating pain. We understand how debilitating this can be for you and it can force you to have to be reliant on others for your care. It can also lead to an inability to go to work, which can cause you to experience lost income. The list can go on and on.

However, there are times when shoulder injuries are caused in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence. If that is the case, you should not have to suffer the consequences. While nothing can be done to turn around the actual injury other than proper medical treatment and therapy, something can be done about the monetary impact it has had on you. You and your St. Paul personal injury attorney can fight together to hold the responsibility liable for the expenses that you have incurred as a result of their recklessness.

Guiding You Through The Process

Personal injury law can be complicated because you have to be able to identify why the accident happened and who is responsible for it. It also has to be shown what damages have been done to you as a result of the accident. The reason is because the insurance company or jury has to know what amount of money is appropriate for paying such damages as current and future medical expenses, current and future lost wages, pain and suffering, and other applicable costs. Some of the types of accidents that people sustain shoulder injuries in include:

  • Truck accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle and recreational vehicle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Assaults

These are just some of the causes that can result in a wide range of injuries.

Securing A Better Future

The injuries themselves can involve shoulder separation, a broken scapula, a broken clavicle, a rotator cuff injury, impingement, and more. Whatever the injury, it is your right to seek the compensation that you need through an experienced Minneapolis personal injury attorney. It is through this that you will be able to pay for your medical costs and other expenses without the worry of finances when you have your health to focus on.
