Ligaments, muscles, bones, and cartilage all meet at the shoulder, and all must function properly so that a person has full use of their arm. When a person suffers a shoulder injury, they cannot fully lift or extend their arm, and their strength could disappear.

At Cimarron Ridge, our Grand Junction shoulder injury lawyers have years of experience obtaining compensation for our clients. We encourage you to reach out to a member of our team to discuss what can be done in the wake of a shoulder injury.

Types of Shoulder Injuries

A traumatic accident can cause different types of shoulder injuries:

  • Rotator cuff tear. Four tendons provide stability to the shoulder. When one or more are injured, a victim can experience pain and weakness in the shoulder. Serious rotator cuff injuries require surgery, though moderate or mild ones can respond to conservative treatment.
  • Labrum tear. The labrum is a fibrous tissue that surrounds the bone socket in the upper arm. It provides stability for the joint between the arm and shoulder. Any impact can cause the labrum to tear, which can lead to intense pain and disability. Some labrum tears require surgery.
  • AC joint separation. The shoulder blade and collarbone join at the AC joint. Any forceful blow can cause the bones to separate. Treating this type of injury can be complicated.
  • Dislocations. Traumatic impacts can displace bones, which cause pain and limits the person’s range of motion.

These are some of the most common shoulder injuries we have seen in car accidents, slip and falls, and violent attacks.

Compensation Available

Shoulder injuries can be very difficult to rehab, which means that injured victims can accumulate mammoth bills and lose considerable sums of money. Our clients have received compensation to cover a variety of losses.

For example, we can fight to get compensation to cover medical bills, including the cost of surgery, hospital stays, doctor visits, prescription drugs, rehabilitation, and other medical expenses. These can often be prohibitive.

We will also fight to get compensation for lost wages. If you could not work because of your shoulder injury, you should not have to suffer the financial consequences.

Our clients might also be eligible for money to cover pain and suffering and other non-economic losses. If your shoulder is permanently damaged, then you should receive compensation for your disability as well. The amount of money is difficult to determine in the abstract, so meet with an attorney to review.
