If you have injured your shoulder in an accident that was not your fault then you could be entitled to make quite a large compensation claim. This is because the shoulder is an essential part of the body; it allows for the mobility of the arms and hands but also provides stability when lifting, pushing and pulling. The shoulder is made of three bones: the collarbone, the shoulder blade and the upper arm bone and it is these bones (in addition to the muscles, ligaments and tendons) that usually get damaged in accidents.

The shoulder can be injured in a variety of different accidents from heavy lifting at work to road traffic accidents and slips, trips or falls. The amount of compensation that will be awarded following a shoulder injury will depend on the seriousness of the injury, recovery time, government guidelines and the amount of compensation that has been awarded in previously decided cases. The following is a rough guide to the average compensation that has been awarded by the courts for shoulder injuries:

•    Minor Shoulder Injury – up to £8,000
•    Slightly Serious Shoulder Injury – up to £12,000
•    Serious Shoulder Injury – up to £30,000

Shoulder Injury Accident Claims

In order to make a successful compensation claim for a shoulder injury, you should gather as much evidence as you can following the accident, without aggravating the injury. This will include taking pictures of the surroundings, obtaining the details of any witnesses and (perhaps most importantly) seeking medical attention.

If you would like to make a compensation claim following a shoulder injury then you should speak with one of our specialist personal injury solicitors** in Bristol who will help you to gather evidence, make a claim and negotiate a settlement all on a no win no fee* basis. This means that if your claim is unsuccessful you will not have to worry about being left with expensive legal fees to pay, whilst if your claim is successful your legal fees will be paid for by the negligent party’s insurance company.

In order to make a successful claim you should ensure that you file it at court within three years of the date of the accident that resulted in the shoulder injury. Any claim brought outside of this time may become barred.
