Am I Entitled To Compensation?
Shoulder injuries can happen in car crashes, truck accidents, slip-and-falls, work injuries, construction accidents and other accidents when you use your arms to brace yourself or where your shoulder is stretched in an awkward position. If another person or company is responsible for your injury, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries including payment of your medical bills; money for your lost wages; and money for the pain, suffering and disability that you have experienced.

Don’t Play “Mr. Tough Guy” When You Need And Deserve Medical Care After A Shoulder Injury
When you are injured in an accident, you should call a lawyer immediately to make certain that your interests are properly protected. There are many ways you can negatively impact your personal injury claim without realizing it, which is why you should call the seasoned attorneys at Trapp & Geller. Sometimes people get hurt in an accident and they go to the emergency room and are told nothing is broken, but their shoulder continues to hurt. Instead of going to a doctor for a follow-up appointment — because they don’t want to pay, don’t have insurance or don’t have the money — they try to tough it out and hope it will get better. After a couple of weeks or months pass, their shoulder still hurts and is actually getting worse. This delay in treatment allows the insurance company to argue that the shoulder wasn’t really hurt, or that it was hurt in some other activity.
If you were in an accident and you hurt your shoulder or are having pain, you should immediately call an attorney. Your attorney will be able to guide you on what medical care is available, even if you don’t have insurance, and on how to best protect yourself. Call the attorneys at Trapp & Geller today for a free consultation and to discuss your available medical treatment at 312-818-2591.
Our lawyers have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies. We will serve as your advocates and advise you at every stage of your recovery.
What If My Injury Doesn’t Get Better?
Shoulder injuries often get better with physical therapy. However, even mild tears or strains of the rotator cuff can become irritated or get worse and could require arthroscopic shoulder surgery or injections or other procedures to relieve the pain. In some cases, you may suffer permanent impairment even from a minor impact or a minor car accident. For this reason, you never want to speak with the insurance companies, and you should immediately call an experienced lawyer to represent you and guide you through the process.
