Shoulder injury cases can be complex and may require an attorney's help to receive the benefits you deserve. For example, your employer may claim that your shoulder injury was caused by something you did off the job or is related to a pre-existing health condition. However, even if you had a pre-existing shoulder problem, you may be entitled to benefits from the workers' compensation insurance company if your injury caused new damage to your shoulder.
Our attorneys for injured workers will help you navigate the process of applying for workers' compensation benefits, from the filing of your initial request for benefits through any necessary appeals.
If you injured your shoulder in an auto accident that occurred during the course and scope of your employment, you may be entitled to benefits from your employer's workers' compensation insurance company. If the auto accident was caused by the negligence of another driver, you may also be entitled to compensation from the other driver's insurance company. Our lawyers can maximize your recovery from both sources.
