Tampa Shoulder and Rotator Cuff Injury Lawyers

Image depicting x ray view of shoulder injury and inflammationIf you have suffered a serious or catastrophic shoulder or rotator cuff injury, you should contact an experienced Tampa Shoulder and Rotator Cuff Injury Lawyer right away.

Nearly 7.5 million people seek medical attention for some type of shoulder pain or discomfort each year. The majority of the injuries reported involved shoulder and upper arm sprains or strains. Rotator cuff injuries account for over 4 million of these doctor's visits alone. Another area of the shoulder that is susceptible to injury due to an accident is called the labrum. This is the fibrous tissue inside the socket of the shoulder. Other injuries such as shoulder fractures or dislocations of the shoulder joint, can also occur in some accident cases.

Any injury to the clavicle, rotator cuff or other area of the shoulder joint can limit a person's ability to work and live normally. These types of sholder injuries can also cause significant amounts of pain and require extensive medical treatment to repair. Many will require surgery, pain management and rehabilitation.

Problems in the shoulder typically involve the muscles, ligaments, and tendons but fractures and broken bones are also common with shoulder injuries. Dislocation injuries include dislocation of the acromioclavicular joint (also known as a "separated shoulder"), or dislocation of the sternoclavicular (between clavicle and sternum) or glenohumeral joints (the ball and socket joint). Soft-tissue injuries and tears to ligaments, tendons, muscle and joint capsules of the shoulder are also common. Grouped into two areas, these injuries are classified in two ways:

  • Impingement - excessive rubbing of the shoulder muscles against the top part of the shoulder blade, called the acromion.
  • Instability - the shoulder joint moves or is forced out of its normal position.
  • Shoulder injuries can be painful and prevent you from working or doing any of your usual daily living activities. If you suspect you have suffered a shoulder injury due to a car or vehicle accident, a slip and fall due to negligent property maintenance or injury due to the negligence of another person, it is important that you seek immediate medical attention and consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
