The human shoulder is made up of three bones which are connected by the usual ligaments, muscles and tendons which can become very painful if injured. The shoulder is an important part of the body and when damaged it can be very uncomfortable. The shoulder can become injured in any number of ways from sporting accidents to road traffic accidents.
The following are examples of some types of shoulder injuries:
• Ligament, muscle, or tendon damage
Shoulder Injury Compensation
Treatment for shoulder injuries usually requires surgery or physiotherapy which can be costly both in terms of time and expense. A victim of a shoulder injury can, when making a compensation claim, also recover reasonable medical expenses and other costs they have had to incur. The amount of compensation a claimant can claim following a shoulder injury will of course depend on the seriousness of the injury but it can range from a couple of thousand pounds to over £30,000.
Make a Claim for a Shoulder Injury
In order to make a claim for compensation the claimant will have to show that the defendant owed them a duty of care and that the shoulder injury is a direct result of a breach of that duty. In most cases the duty care will already be established, road users have a duty of care towards each other, employers have a duty of care to their employees, medical professionals have a duty of care to their patients and so on. Proving that there has been a breach of that duty can be trickier and that is where your Leeds personal injury lawyer will be able to help.
