Car Accident Shoulder Injury Lawsuit Lawyers in Georgia


February 09, 2022

When people think about motor vehicles accident injuries, they often imagine life-threatening injuries such as spinal fractures, paralysis, severe burns, amputations, and other similar, catastrophic car accident-related injuries. However, less severe car accident injuries cause accident victims the greatest challenges after a car accident. This is especially true in cases of shoulder injuries stemming from car crashes.  

Shoulder injuries are excruciatingly painful and require a lot of amount of time to heal correctly. This alone makes shoulder injuries as costly as other severe car accident injuries. Fortunately, individuals who sustain shoulder injuries might be able to receive monetary compensation from the driver who contributed or caused the motor vehicle accident. 

Impediments After a Shoulder Injury

Like other parts of the body, we usually take our shoulders for granted and never consider the activities that healthy shoulders enable us to do. After a shoulder injury, we suddenly realize how significant the limitations these injuries impose upon us. Following a shoulder injury, it isn't easy to:

Work - Shoulder injuries make it extremely difficult to perform most types of arm movements. A shoulder injury victim will likely have difficulty lifting, reaching, and moving their arms. This injury can make it difficult for people to perform their job tasks. Therefore, the accident victim may have trouble finding or performing their jobs. In serious cases, the accident victim might miss work or even lose their job. Some shoulder injury victims find that they cannot hold their arms up in order to write or type on a computer. 

Enjoy Activities - Shoulder injuries are usually accompanied by a range of motion issue. This can affect the quality of life for accident victims because they might not be able to enjoy hobbies or play with their children as they once could. 

These injury-specific limitations may improve over time, but it is common for accident-related shoulder injuries to alter the victim's life for several weeks or months after the auto accident, especially when shoulder injuries involve dislocations or fractures. 

Medical Expenses and Other Damages Associated with Shoulder Injuries in Georgia

Shoulder injury expenses can include:

  • Emergency medical treatment;
  • Prescription medication expenses;
  • Medical devices such as an arm sling and bandages;
  • Physical therapy;
  • Lost earnings to attend medical appointments;
  • Lost wages when unable to perform their job and the victim needs to accept a lower-paying job;
  • Loss of enjoyment of life; and
  • Pain and suffering from their injury
