What Types of Injuries Can Your Shoulder Suffer?

Your shoulder is a complex joint made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It’s one of the most mobile joints in your body, allowing you to lift your arm up overhead and rotate it in a circular motion. But this mobility also makes your shoulder susceptible to personal injury.

There are many types of shoulder injuries that can occur. The most common include:

  • Dislocated shoulder: This occurs when the head of your humerus (upper arm bone) pops out of its socket in your shoulder blade. Dislocated shoulders are usually caused by a fall or a direct blow to the shoulder.
  • Rotator cuff tear: The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles and tendons that surround the head of your humerus and stabilize your shoulder joint. A rotator cuff tear can occur due to overuse or acute trauma, such as a fall. Symptoms include pain and weakness in your shoulder.
  • Frozen shoulder: Also called adhesive capsulitis, frozen shoulder is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in your shoulder joint. It often occurs after an injury or surgery to the shoulder.

Once your solicitor** has been instructed, they will start gathering evidence to support your claim. This may include medical records, witness statements, and CCTV footage. Once they have enough evidence, they will submit a formal claim to the other party’s insurance company.

The insurance company will then have to respond to the claim. They may accept liability and offer you a settlement, or they may deny liability and request further information from your solicitor**. If liability is denied, your solicitor** will assess the evidence and decide whether to proceed with court action.
