    What is My Torn Labrum Shoulder Injury Worth?

Work With Ehline Law to Get a Fair Settlement for Your Injury of the Shoulder

What is My Torn Labrum Shoulder Injury Worth?
Like any other personal injury, compensation for a torn labrum or shoulder injury depends on the severity of the injuries and other non-economic damages. These can include loss of quality of life, loss of companionship, physical pain and suffering, and many others.

An expert personal injury lawyer can help you determine the value of your torn shoulder injury claims by assessing lost income, current and future medical bills, shoulder replacement surgery, therapy, and other types of damages.

Types of Labral Tear Shoulder Injuries

The three main types of labral tear shoulder injuries are:

  • Lesion tear: This is one of the most common injuries among sports like tennis, baseball, or any other sport involving over-the-head motions. The tear can start from the middle of the Glenoid and go all the way to the back of it.
  • Bank art tear: Damage to the lower part of the Glenoid can result in this type of injury, which is quite common among young individuals who end up with dislocated shoulders.
  • Posterior labrum tear: Blow dealt with the back of the shoulder joint and is a result of repetitive micro-trauma among athletes. However, this is still quite a rare type of injury, contributing to only 10% of the overall shoulder injuries.

Symptoms of a Torn Labrum Shoulder Injury

A torn labrum can occur from injuries associated with the upper arm bone, shoulder socket, and the muscles nearby. A torn labrum shoulder injury is linked with torn rotator cuff injuries, torn biceps, and a dislocated shoulder. This can result in increased shoulder pain, reduced shoulder motion or frozen shoulder, strength loss, and even ground with other bones.

Difference Between Workers Compensation and Disability Benefits

Workers’ compensation is the insurance employers must-have for all their employees, and this covers any injuries at work and is an alternative to litigation. State disability benefits kick in when you’re injured outside of work and can not attend work due to your injuries. In such situations, the state makes weekly payments to the injured.

The difference between the two is that workers’ compensation pays for work-related injuries the employer pays for this insurance for all employees. In contrast, the insured pays for disability benefits that they can access to balance out the lost income for not going to work due to receiving injuries outside the workplace.

Get a Personal Injury Attorney for your Shoulder Injury Claim

Shoulder injury claims often require experts to analyze the damage to the shoulder and the victim’s quality of life. Having an experienced personal injury attorney for your shoulder injury case is a great way to ensure complete evidence and documentation during the claims process and an acceptable dollar value to your claims.

This is important as insurance companies always try their best to deny initial claims on the basis of discrepancies or even “ridiculous claims value.” Complying with all the terms and conditions reduces the chances of a denial and brings the insurer to the table for negotiations.

Ehline Law and our injury lawyers can negotiate on your behalf with the insurance companies to get you a maximum shoulder injury settlement. We understand that insurers like to give a lowball settlement; however, our attorneys have the right experience to take parties to the trial court. We’re not afraid to do that if we feel you are not getting the compensation you deserve.
