Injured Your Shoulder At Work? We Can Help.
Among all occupational hazards, shoulder injuries are one of the most common. However, many workers’ compensation claims for shoulder injuries are denied or not fully covered because of insufficient medical evidence, mistakes on the part of insurance companies, or the insurance company’s failure to recognize workers’ rights.

Common Types Of Shoulder Injuries
A shoulder injury can affect every aspect of your life, potentially causing long-term pain and disability. Our attorneys have extensive experience in handling workers’ comp claims for these types of injuries, including:
- Rotator cuff tears: The rotator cuff is comprised of tendons and muscles that work to stabilize the shoulder. The rotator cuff also helps you lift and rotate your arm. If you have suffered a rotator cuff injury, you may have difficulty with everyday tasks, including your job duties.
- Shoulder fractures: The shoulder is made up of three joints and three bones — the scapula, the humerus and the clavicle. Fractures, dislocations and soft-tissue injuries in these areas can be extremely painful and costly. In many cases, these injuries result from falls in the workplace.
- Impingement: This type of injury often affects workers whose job duties require them to use their hands above the level of the shoulder. Impingement happens when the rotator cuff tendons become inflamed, and impingement can cause serious pain and potential loss of arm movement.
