Explore Your Car Accident Shoulder Injury Settlement

A shoulder injury after a car accident can derail even the fundamental aspects of your life.

No one anticipates a car accident affecting their ability to function as they normally would.

Yet, approximately 5,250,837 police-reported car accidents occurred throughout the United States in 2020 alone, which resulted in approximately 2,282,015 injuries.

That means an average of 6,235 Americans suffered injuries in a car accident every day in 2020.

After a car accident shoulder injury, a settlement can help you cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other expenses you incurred due to your injury.

A common injury sustained during an automobile accident is a torn rotator cuff, which may require expensive surgery. A rotator cuff injury settlement amount will vary based on the circumstances of your case.

Types of Shoulder Injuries from Car Accidents

Even in minor car accidents, the occupants of a vehicle can suffer a shoulder injury. A shoulder injury can happen during the collision when you brace for impact or in other ways—such as from the effects of the collision itself.

You may not recognize your injury right away, thinking you are just sore from the aftermath of a collision. However, you should seek a medical opinion as soon as possible to locate any further issues.

Examples of shoulder injuries that often occur in accidents include:

  • Bone fractures,
  • Deep tissue bruising,
  • Dislocations,
  • Muscle strains or sprains, or
  • Rotator cuff tears.

Average Settlement For Shoulder Surgery

If another party caused the crash that resulted in your shoulder injury, they might be liable for the financial harm you incur from your injury.

Damages people sustain after a shoulder injury include things like:

  • Medical bills,
  • Rehabilitation costs,
  • Loss of future earning capacity, and
  • Lost wages. 

If you suffered severe injuries or required shoulder surgery, your settlement would likely be valued higher than someone who suffered a relatively minor shoulder injury.

Every case is unique and therefore, it is impossible to determine the average settlement for shoulder surgery. Your shoulder injury settlement will depend on the independent factors of your case.
