Compensation for
Shoulder Fracture

We've got your claim covered

When it comes to cycling accidents one of the most common injury types that we deal with is a shoulder injury. Due to the nature of most cycling accidents the cyclist is generally thrown from the bike and tends to land on their upper body, which can result in the fracturing or breaking of the shoulder bone.

Shoulder fractures can not only be incredibly painful but they can also have a direct impact on your ability to perform many common day to day tasks. As a result, a serious injury of this type can leave you unable to work and perform many regular tasks.

If you have received a shoulder fracture as from a cycling accident which has been caused through the negligence of another person then you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim. This claim could cover any medical expenses or loss of income which you have incurred as a result of your injuries.

 

What can I claim for?

  • Medical expenses – you should not be left out of pocket due to medical expenses which you have incurred through the negligence of another person and if you have been then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to recoup this
  • Income loss – if you are unable to return to work as a result of your injury then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any lost earnings
  • Rehabilitation – shoulder injuries can often take a while to overcome and as a result you may require a great deal of rest and rehabilitation, including physiotherapy as a result. You could be eligible to make a compensation claim as a result.

What are some symptoms and causes of a shoulder fracture?

When it comes to shoulder fractures, they can occur in a number of ways, but are usually as the result of a direct impact which puts additional pressure on the structure of the shoulder and slowly forces it to crack and separate. Many shoulder fractures of this type are quite severe and usually require pins and surgery to correct the problem. This can then lead onto around six weeks of steady rehabilitation before a person can start to use their shoulder again.


Who can I make a claim against?

When it comes to making a claim for a shoulder fracture, you can claim against anyone who you feel has been negligent towards you. In most situations this will either be another road user, or an authority who is responsible for the maintenance of roads and cycling tracks. If you have been injured through the negligence of another road user then you may be eligible to claim against them, alternately if your negligence has come through the incorrect maintenance of roads and cycling paths then you could be eligible to claim against the council or other relevant body.
