Shoulder Injuries from Accidents and Negligence

shoulder injury accident lawyerYou may have a legal remedy if a serious vehicle accident, slip and fall, workplace negligence, or premises liability has caused unbearable shoulder pain. This will allow you to receive compensation for medical treatment, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Any serious vehicle accident means adjusting to significant types of pain, learning to use limbs again within your limitations, attempting to sustain yourself without income, and undergoing months of medical treatment, including physical therapy. An injury to the shoulder and rotator cuff is one of the more difficult injuries a person can sustain.

Our shoulders and rotator cuffs serve as the pivot point from which we move our arms freely. Healthy shoulders allow us to carry items, drive a car, put on clothes, cook, clean, do yard work, and perform a plethora of other arm-related tasks. Rotator cuff and shoulder injuries have a significant impact on our ability to perform almost any job until the pain subsides.

→Specific Injuries to the Shoulder:

→Clavicle Fractures. A clavicle fracture is a break in the collarbone, one of the shoulder’s main bones. This type of fracture is relatively common, accounting for approximately 5% of all adult fractures. The majority of clavicle fractures occur when the bone is put under enough pressure by a fall onto the shoulder or an outstretched arm that it snaps or breaks. A broken collarbone can be excruciatingly painful and make it difficult to move your arm.

Most clavicle fractures can be treated by immobilizing the arm and shoulder with a sling while the bone heals. However, in some clavicle fractures, the bone fragments move far out of place when the injury occurs. Surgery to realign the collarbone may be required for these more complicated fractures.

→Proximal Humerus Fractures. A proximal humerus fracture is a break in the upper part of the arm’s bone (humerus). Pain, swelling, and a reduced ability to move the shoulder are all symptoms. Injuries to the axillary nerve or artery are possible complications.

The most common cause is a fall onto the arm or direct trauma to the arm. Diabetes and osteoporosis are two risk factors. X-rays or CT scans are commonly used to make a diagnosis. It is a humerus fracture. There are numerous classification systems.

Treatment usually consists of using an arm sling for a short period of time, followed by specific exercises. Even when the fragments are separated, this appears to be appropriate in many cases. Surgery is recommended less frequently.

Fractures of the proximal humerus are common. The elderly are the most commonly affected. They are the third most common fracture in this age group, after hip and Colles fractures. Women are more likely to be affected than men.

→Dislocation – Glenohumeral. The shoulder joint (also known as the glenohumeral joint) is the most mobile joint in the body, owing to its distinctive anatomical structure, which includes a very shallow socket. Unfortunately, it is also the joint in the human body that is most frequently dislocated. The joint is held in place or stable by a combination of bone, ligaments, and muscles, all of which play a role in shoulder stability. Because the bony part of the joint socket is so shallow, it is critical that all of these structures work properly to keep the joint from dislocating.

Glenohumeral subluxation is a partial or complete dislocation caused by changes in the mechanical integrity of the joint. A subluxation occurs when the humeral head slips out of the glenoid cavity due to rotator cuff weakness or a blow to the shoulder area. A subluxation can be classified as anterior (forward), posterior (backward), or inferior (downward). The difference between a shoulder dislocation and a shoulder dislocation is that the humeral head pops back into its socket.

→Acromioclavicular Sprains. The acromioclavicular (AC) joint is a component of the shoulder girdle (the collar bone and shoulder blade that support the shoulder joint). An AC joint injury is a shoulder injury that occurs at the top of the shoulder. It occurs at the point where the front of the shoulder blade (acromion) connects to the collarbone (clavicle). An AC joint injury is most commonly caused by trauma, such as a fall directly on the outside of the shoulder. Overuse (repeated overhead lifting of heavy weights or objects with poor mechanics) can also result in an AC joint injury.

→Rotator Cuff Tears. A rotator cuff tear is a painful shoulder injury that can severely limit the ability to move the arm and shoulder. The rotator cuff is made up of four muscles and tendons that allow the shoulder to move freely.

The rotator cuff is made up of four muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint and allow the shoulder to move freely. A rotator cuff tear occurs when one of the tendons tears as a result of an accident or repeated use. This injury is excruciatingly painful and can severely limit your arm and shoulder movement.
