Individuals who perform either or both heavy manual labor and repetitive lifting or overhead work are highly susceptible to shoulder injuries. Shoulder injuries cause a tremendous amount of pain and usually limit an injured worker in a variety of ways, such as preventing the worker from performing light activities such as putting on a shirt or a pair of pants to more strenuous activities at work such as lifting heavy objects and operating heavy equipment.
There are several types of shoulder injuries. Some shoulder injuries can be treated conservatively with physical therapy and pain medication; however, other shoulder injuries require surgery or even multiple surgeries.
Bader Scott Injury Lawyers handles workers’ compensation cases involving both minor and major shoulder injuries. Some of these injuries include:
- Rotator Cuff Tears
- Shoulder Instability
- Biceps Tendon Tears
- Fractured Collarbones
- Displaced Shoulder Fractures
- Chronic Shoulder Dislocations
- Acromioclavicular Joint (AC Joint) Seperations
