Shoulder Injuries from Car Accidents

The shoulder includes the shoulder blade, collarbone, and arm bone, or humerus. These bones are joined together by soft tissue, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and three major joints—all of which are essential to daily, functional movements. Trauma to the shoulder is common in auto accidents. The complex structure of the shoulder, and its many vulnerable parts, make it particularly susceptible to injury. Whether it’s a fractured bone, dislocated joint, torn tendon, or muscle sprain, shoulder injuries are no small matter, and can lead to chronic pain and suffering.

In an auto accident, the shoulder can be damaged from direct impact, the jarring motion of sudden acceleration and deceleration, or the pressure of a seat belt shoulder strap. Shoulder pain and decreased mobility can also accompany neck, spine, and back injuries, or whiplash. Unless there has been a direct blow, the shoulder damage is an invisible ailment, detectable by x-ray or MRI. The symptoms of a shoulder injury may not appear until days after an accident, and can worsen over time. That is why it is essential that you have a comprehensive medical evaluation as soon as possible following an accident. Getting your injury properly diagnosed can help you receive just compensation in a car accident settlement.

Common Types of Shoulder Injury:

  • Shoulder muscle strain and stiffness
  • Dislocated joints
  • Torn rotator cuff
  • Torn tissues, ligaments, and muscles
  • “Frozen shoulder”
  • Bone fractures
  • Whiplash
  • Reduced range and articulation of motion
  • AC joint injury, or shoulder separation injury
  • “Thrower’s shoulder,” or Impingement Syndrome
  • •Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS)
  • Chronic pain
  • Severe swelling and bruising
  • SLAP tear, or Superior Labrum from Anterior to Posterior tear

Shoulder Injury Settlements

When you are involved in a collision, you do not have time to prepare for impact. Many people tense their arms, or brace themselves against the steering wheel—a normal response with damaging consequences. Shoulder injury victims and their families or loved ones may face significant medical costs, long-term rehabilitation, and pain affecting the quality of life. Your shoulder injury is not your fault. If a reckless or negligent driver has injured you, you have a right to compensation for medical expenses, loss of wages, and ongoing therapy or lifestyle modifications. You need an experienced and compassionate attorney to fight for you while you fight for recovery.
