Car Accidents Can Result In Serious Shoulder Injuries
Shoulder and joint injuries can occur in all types of motor vehicle accidents, including head-on and rear-end collisions. They also happen in other wrecks such as rollovers, motorcycle accidents and bicycle accidents, when people fall and land awkwardly. These kinds of injuries may also result from ill-fitting seat belts on children and adults.
At Culpepper Kurland, we represent clients throughout the Tampa Bay area who have suffered significant injuries in accidents caused by negligent or reckless drivers. We work with clients with shoulder injuries such as:
- Impingement syndrome
- Torn rotator cuff
- Broken clavicle
- Trauma to the brachial plexus, causing severe neurological damage
- Humeral head or acromioclavicular joint damage
- Shoulder separation
- Shoulder dislocation
Your Compensation Should Cover All Medical Costs And Lost Income
Shoulder injuries could require steroid injections, extensive physical therapy and reparative surgery. In many situations, a shoulder injury from a car accident may require arthroscopic surgery. In a lot of cases, at least some degree of damage is permanent and you may suffer chronic pain.
Such a painful recovery process and potentially permanent damage will often entitle you to compensation for your medical costs, lost income and other related damages when your injuries were caused by the negligent actions of another driver. We aim to recover the compensation necessary to fully replace lost wages and pay your medical bills, as well as cover any other damages.
