Shoulder Injuries From Accidents

Shoulders are durable members of the body that allow people to perform all manner of tasks. However, enough force can debilitate them and lead to significant pain. Common types of shoulder and shoulder-related injuries include:

  • Shoulder dislocation
  • Humerus fracture
  • Sprain of the acromioclavicular joint
  • Rotator cuff tears and injuries

Experiencing any one of these or other shoulder injuries could lead to debilitation, pain, and unemployment. If someone else is to blame, they should be held to pay.

Shoulder Injuries: Who’s to Blame?

Blame for shoulder injuries depends on where and how the injury took place. Generally speaking, proving negligence is required for compensation. Negligence in car accidents looks different from negligence in a medical setting or negligence associated with unsafe properties.
For example, negligence in traffic includes acts like:

  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Following too closely while driving
  • Driving while drowsy or drunk
  • Failure to obey traffic laws

In the medical context, negligence might look like:

  • Improper use of force during childbirth
  • Negligent chiropractic treatment
  • Improper treatment of shoulder injury
  • Negligent physical therapy or rehab

In almost every case, the potentially liable party must have had a duty of care toward the claimant and must have violated this duty of care, leading to the claimant’s harm. 

For shoulder injuries occasioned at work, the rules of compensation are different. Work injuries in Texas are usually covered by workers’ compensation. However, a third party may also be liable for damages arising out of a shoulder injury caused at work. 

Making the Case for Damages

Shoulder injury victims must make a strong case for damages and be less than 51% responsible for the accident to recover damages. Insurance companies and defendants vigorously defend against shoulder injury claims, often attempting to blame them on the victim. An experienced personal injury attorney, however, knows what justice costs, and it is typically more than insurance companies initially offer. 

With thorough investigation and creative strategies, the Law Offices of Michael J. Gopin, PLLC, builds airtight cases for proper damage payments that truly represent client losses. During our investigations, we may search for and collect various types of evidence, including:

  • Camera footage
  • Police reports
  • Witness statements
  • Medical records
  • Safety records
  • Any other relevant evidence

We also perform accident reconstruction with industry-recognized experts whenever necessary. No expense is spared when our clients deserve more. 

Shoulder Injury Compensation

All of our efforts at the Law Offices of Michael J. Gopin, PLLC, are directed at recovering the top end of the compensation range in your case. Our experience representing injury victims comes into play with each case we take on, giving us the proper insight into how much our clients’ claims are truly worth.

Damages we pursue in shoulder injury cases include:

  • Medical coverage and reimbursement for medical care
  • Compensation for lost wages, now and in the future
  • Compensation for injury-related expenses, such as travel expenses and medical device and equipment costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

If insurance companies had their way, all injury victims would take quick payouts and leave portions of their compensation behind. However, those victims who get lawyers get the payments they truly deserve.
