A shoulder injury can involve surgery and many months of rehabilitation. Not having use of one arm can cause employment problems, trouble driving, inability to care for your family and many more problems. If the shoulder injury was caused by someone else, either through an accident, negligence or any other reason, you are entitled to compensation.
If you are injured in a fall, it is important to document the floor condition that caused your accident. That could include poor lighting, an uneven sidewalk or that wasn’t shoveled correctly, potholes, a substance on the floor, a loose manhole cover, and other obstacles. Make sure someone takes pictures of the place you fell. Report the incident to management and tell the personnel at the hospital exactly what made you fall.
Certain injury claims have short time limitations. If you are interested in pursuing compensation from the responsible party, make sure you contact an attorney as soon as possible. He or she can tell you the time limitations in your case.
