Shoulder injuries may affect your ability to work or take part in your day-to-day tasks and leisure activities. Our shoulder injury claims specialists understand the effects this can have on your independence, which is why our solicitors strive to secure you the compensation you need.

How To Make A Shoulder Injury Claim

Start by calling us on 0800 056 4110 for your free initial consultation. This’ll involve a few questions about the injury, including how it happened, who you think is responsible, and how your life has been affected.

If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.

If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.

We can help you claim for:

  • Fractures
  • Dislocations
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Erb’s Palsy.

In addition to compensation, we can help you arrange physiotherapy and other rehabilitation if needed.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Shoulder Injury Claim?

Generally speaking, you’ll have three years from the date of your injury to make a claim. There are some exceptions to these however, such as if you’re claiming for a criminal assault, for which the limit is generally two years.

No matter how your shoulder injury happened, you should contact us as soon as possible. The earlier you get in touch, the easier it is for us to gather evidence to support your claim.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Shoulder Injury?

As every case is different, there are no pre-determined compensation amounts for shoulder injuries. You’re likely to get more compensation if your shoulder injury needs surgery, for example. We’ll assess your claim based on:

  • The severity of the damage
  • Loss of earnings
  • Inability to take part in daily activities
  • Your need for additional treatment such as physiotherapy.

Where applicable, we can also help with interim compensation payments which can cover costs such as hospital travel.

No Win No Fee Shoulder Injury Claims

Many of our shoulder injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from your final compensation.

Why Choose Us?

Our leading legal teams up and down the country have dealt with thousands of claims just like yours. We understand that there is more to a shoulder injury than just pain and inconvenience, which is why we’ll deal with your claim sensitively and strive to get you the best compensation possible.

Where needed, our support and rehabilitation specialists can also advise on additional help such as rehabilitation and counselling.
