Cleveland Rotator Cuff And Shoulder Injury Attorney

Accidents that result in a direct blow to the shoulder can cause serious shoulder injuries, including rotator cuff tears, torn ligaments, and fractures, among other injuries. While some shoulder injuries are relatively minor and involve only bruises and contusions, there can be more serious injuries that require extensive medical care, physical therapy, and surgery in order to heal correctly. A shoulder injury may also involve other complications, including nerve damage and chronic pain.

Warning Signs Of A Shoulder Injury

If you are experiencing pain in your shoulder after an accident, immediately ask yourself these questions:

  • Is your shoulder stiff?
  • Can you rotate your arm in all the normal positions?
  • Does it feel like your shoulder could pop or slide out of the socket?
  • Do you lack the strength in your shoulder to carry out your daily activities?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should consult an orthopedic surgeon immediately for help in determining the severity of the problem. Possible serious shoulder injuries may include:

  • Rotator cuff tear
  • Torn ligament
  • Torn shoulder muscles
  • Dislocated shoulder
  • Fractures
  • Separated shoulder
  • Impingement

If you have suffered any of these types of shoulder injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation and should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney immediately.
