Shoulder Injuries


Shoulder injuries commonly take place in automobile accidents and trip/slip and fall incidents. Many times, victims are aware that a shoulder injury has occurred. However, some accidents produce shoulder pain that is subtle and grows as time goes on.

In the latter of these situations, victims do not immediately contact a lawyer because they assume the pain will improve. Unfortunately, pain gets progressively worse. As a result, victims are unsure whether or not a lawyer can still help.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers in Vancouver, our lawyers focus solely on personal injury law and have handled hundreds of cases involving shoulder injuries. We understand how painful, disabling, and distressing these injuries can be. No matter if your shoulder pain became apparent right away or has gradually increased, the seasoned legal staff at Preszler Injury Lawyers in Vancouver can assist you in filing a claim and recovering maximum compensation. Call 1-844-373-8202 today to schedule a no-cost, no-obligation initial consultation.

What types of shoulder injuries can occur in an accident?

In an accident, the body changes momentum at a rapid pace. The hand and arm are usually used to keep the body safe from impact. This automatic response shields you from the slamming into the pavement when you trip and fall, or protects you from hitting the steering wheel in a motor vehicle collision.

Ultimately, you collide with either the pavement or the steering wheel, depending on the nature of the accident. When the momentum stops, the shoulder often absorbs the blow. This trauma can cause painful, long-term injuries.

Common shoulder injuries caused by accidents can include:

  • torn rotator cuffs;
  • sprains or strains;
  • dislocation;
  • and fractures.

After an injury occurs, symptoms can manifest in stiffness, a feeling of instability, and general weakness in the shoulder region. Many of these injuries affect the muscles, ligaments, and tendons as opposed to the bones in or near the shoulder. However, bones can also be affected when trauma occurs.

How are shoulder injuries treated?

If your doctor suspects a shoulder injury, tests will be ordered to show what type of injury you have sustained. Tests can include x-rays, an MRI, ultrasound, and an arthrography (a type of medical imaging used to diagnose the source of pain).

The road to recovery for shoulder injuries can be long and arduous. Patients are often treated conservatively at first, but in some instances, surgery is necessary to repair the damage caused in the accident.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers in Vancouver, we know shoulder injuries often take a long time to heal. Our goal is to ensure you receive fair compensation for the damages you incurred as a result of the accident, including injuries that will likely produce problems in the future.
