Types of Shoulder Injuries
We know full well that shoulder injuries can be debilitating. Many of our clients are not able to perform their work-related duties and many even have difficulty with normal everyday tasks. Some of the shoulder injuries we have seen are:
- Cartilage injury
- Separated shoulder
- Rotator cuff injury
- Torn ligaments
- Nerve damage/numbness
- Arthritis/degenerative disease
Whether your shoulder injury occurred from a fall or accident, heavy lifting, or repetitive motion, you are covered under Workers’ Compensation and are entitled to medical and cash benefits after a certain amount of days off the job.
If you are denied reimbursement for arthroscopic surgery, MRI tests, physical therapy, or chiropractic care, the experienced Workers’ Compensation attorneys at White & Stradley, PLLC in Winston Salem, North Carolina can help. We can also intervene if an independent medical examiner determines that you should return to work and you disagree with that call. We have represented clients at Workers’ Compensation Board hearings to reverse decisions or work out a compromise, and we will take your case all the way to trial if it’s necessary.
Some types of work are more likely to cause shoulder injury than others. Painters, plasterers, carpenters and other Workers who frequently work with their arms over their heads put a lot of strain on their shoulder joints. Assembly Workers, furniture movers, and others who use their arms and shoulders repetitively may suffer repetitive strain injury.
