Damages in Shoulder Injury
If you are involved in an accident that results in a shoulder injury, you have a right to bring a personal injury claim against the party responsible. The goal of a personal injury claim is to help you receive compensation for not only the physical care required for your shoulder injury, but also any other losses you suffer as a result of your injury.
The legal term for this financial compensation is damages. Because an accident that results in shoulder injury can affect many areas of your life, you can receive damages for many different types of losses.
Some possible damages available under California Law for shoulder and other injuries include:
Medical Related Charges: When you are involved in an accident that results in a serious shoulder injury, you will need to seek medical care. This means that you may incur expenses for ambulance rides, hospital stays, surgeries, doctor visits, and medication costs. You can be compensated for these types of expenses.
Recovery Related Expenses: A shoulder injury can require further care in order to make a complete physical recovery. You can receive compensation for physical therapy expenses and other check-up costs required for your recovery.
Wage Loss: Your Shoulder injury may result in you missing work for a period of time. Even if you use paid vacation or sick days to cover your absence, you can still be compensated as the party responsible for your injuries should not benefit from you using these days—they too will have to pay for the wages you missed while recovering. If your injury limits your ability to work in the future, you can receive compensation for lost earning capacity.
Other Damages: There are many other non-economic damages for which you can recover financially. These include any emotional distress you suffered in your due to your injury, pain and suffering, or any activities you missed out because you could not use your shoulder or arm.
