Shoulder Injury Compensation Claims in Bolton
Shoulders are essential for any body movement, whether that involves lifting at work, playing sport, spending time with children, cooking, or any other activity. When you hurt your shoulder the pain and limitations that it can impose will drastically affect your quality of life. That’s why it’s important that you have a solicitor who can help you claim for compensation and the medical treatment you need to move forward in life.
There are a number of different shoulder injuries which may result in compensation. Such injuries include ligament injuries, soft tissue injuries, a dislocated shoulder or a fractured collar bone. There are a number of varying treatments for shoulder injuries – including physiotherapy in some cases and surgery in others.
The amount of compensation for shoulder depends not only on the severity and type of injury, but also on a number of other factors including but not limited to how the injury was caused, whether or not there has been a breach of any applicable health and safety regulations, whether or not the injury has had a long-term impact on the individual and the recovery time.
You may have suffered a shoulder injury as a result of a road traffic accident, a sports injury or an accident in the workplace. Regardless of how you have suffered the injury, it is important that you contact our personal injury lawyers Bolton as soon as is reasonably possible if you feel that another party or organisation is responsible as you may will be entitled to shoulder injuries compensation.
Shoulder Injury Claims – 3rd Party Negligence
If the shoulder injury was the result of an accident at work, a sporting injury, a car accident, assault, of other reason, and was directly due to someone else’s negligence, then there’s ever chance that you could claim for shoulder injury compensation. Shoulder injury compensation amounts will typically be paid out for pain, suffering, loss of amenity, and financial expenses and losses you might have incurred.

Worried About Making a Claim at Work?
Many of the Bolton shoulder injury claim cases we work on, will be as a direct result of an incident that has happened to an employee whilst they were working. Please don’t be concerned or worried about exploring your legal options because all businesses are bound by law to carry insurance policies designed to pay out for incidents such as this.
What that means is that if you win compensation, an insurance company will pay for it, not your employer or workplace. Bolton businesses are also now allowed to fire or sack workers who have made personal injury claims so you are also protected in that way too.
