Did You Suffer An Injury To Your Shoulder, Arm Or Elbow?
A shoulder, arm, or elbow injury can be debilitating. When the injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, that fact makes the injury even more devastating.

The arm, elbow, and shoulder are highly mobile joints. Because they have so much function, injuries can occur in multiple different fashions, such as deceleration, acceleration, or rotational force. These forces can be caused by slip-and-fall accidents, physical assault, work place accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and car accidents.
In automobile accidents, an arm, elbow or shoulder injury can occur when the driver grips the wheel to brace themselves against the impact of the other vehicle. At the same time, bicycle riders and pedestrians can experience significant injury when they land on an extended arm or brace for the fall.
An arm, elbow or shoulder injury could also occur from having a heavy object fall on your arm, by having your arm trapped or run over, or by having your arm caught in a piece of farm or industrial machinery.
A Lawyer Not Afraid To Take Any Type Of Shoulder Or Arm Injury Case
The list of injuries is extensive. The shoulder injuries that a person may experience include:
- Broken scapula
- Rotator cuff injury
- Shoulder separation
- Broken clavicle (collar bone)
- SLAP tear
- Bursitis (shoulder impingement)
Elbow And Arm Injuries
Arm injuries can include a broken arm or fracture. Elbow injuries can also involve fractures and a broken bone, but can also involve an ulnar nerve injury. Just as a break or a fracture can be very painful, nerve damage can cause pain in areas of the body that are not directly affected by the injury. This can cause those areas of the body to be unusable because motion flares up the nerve pain.
