Shoulder Injury Compensation
The shoulders are an important part of the human body and are involved in just about every movement we make. As a result, when the shoulder is injured it can be very painful and can be very uncomfortable. If you injure your shoulder as a result of the negligence of a third party you should consider making a claim against them which will not only compensation you for the physical pain but will also reimburse you for any other loss you have incurred such as medical bills, damage to property and loss of income.
Make a Claim for a Shoulder Injury
The amount of compensation you can claim following a shoulder injury will depend on the seriousness of the injury and can be assessed by one of our personal injury solicitors Wakefield who are experienced with shoulder injury compensation claims. Obviously, the more serious the injury and the longer the recovery time the larger the compensation claim. The following is a rough guide to the amount of compensation you can claim following an injury to the shoulder:
- Minor Shoulder Injury – up to £8,000
- Slightly Serious Shoulder Injury – up to £12,000
- Serious Shoulder Injury – up to £30,000
To make a successful compensation claim following a shoulder injury there are certain steps that you should follow. The first is to seek medical attention without delay, even if the injury is not particularly painful at first. You should also take pictures of the surrounding area where the accident took place and obtain the details of any witnesses and ask whether they are happy to provide statements in support of your claim.
