You most probably use both of your shoulders for many day-to-day activities which means that a shoulder injury can have a significant impact on your life. There are many types of surgeries you can have on your shoulders such as a long list of Arthroscopy surgeries. This, as well as Dislocation treatment, shoulder replacements and Rotator Cuff Repairs. When it comes to Rotator Cuff Repairs, as we can assume with most shoulder surgeries, there are risks to having the shoulder surgery. This includes bleeding, pain, scarring, possible infections, blood clotting and severe pain just to name a few.
So now that you understand the possible impact a shoulder surgery could have on your life, you can move onto the question ‘can I claim?’ Filing a personal injury claim, or even better, winning it, would obviously take a huge monetary weight off your shoulders. Although, there are a few factors you have to consider before officially filing a personal injury claim.
If you are thinking about filing a personal injury claim, the injury needs to be due to the fault or negligence of a third party. It does not matter if it is a work accident, slip, and trip, road accident or whatsoever claim you can think of. It needs to be due to a third party and it needs to be provable.
As with any case, you will need evidence to prove your shoulder injury compensation claim. The less evidence you have the less likely it is that a solicitor will take on your case. This is especially true if you are looking for a no win no fee solicitor. This evidence includes but is not limited to a detailed description, photographs, medical and police reports and insurance documents. On top of this, a diary of your injuries and symptoms will also count as evidence.
For the most part, you have to make shoulder injury claims within 3 years of the accident.
If you have read this and think you are liable for shoulder injury compensation then you are probably thinking about how much shoulder injury compensation exactly you will be able to receive.
