Shoulder Injuries

A shoulder injury, shoulder joint injury, or ligament injury can cause extreme, continuous pain. If you have sustained a shoulder injury while at your place of work, you may need the advice of a knowledgeable attorney.

All employees whether working at a construction site or an office, run the risk of damaging the shoulder simply by performing daily tasks. Our shoulders are built to accommodate a range of bodily motions and are more fragile and susceptible to damage.

To prevent an injury from getting worse, it is important to receive immediate medical attention.

Shoulder injuries can be extremely painful and significantly reduce your range of motion. If you are experiencing pain, inflammation, stiffness due to a work-related shoulder injury, you are entitled to seek compensation.
