Pursuing Claims In Torn Rotator Cuff Injuries
Shoulder injuries often go undiagnosed after a serious accident. Even a torn rotator cuff or acromion injury can be mistaken for a muscle strain or soreness rather than an internal injury that will require surgery. In order to receive the appropriate medical treatment, it is important for accident victims with shoulder pain to report their symptoms to their physician. Shoulder injuries that aren’t aggressively treated — particularly in the elderly — can result in a “frozen shoulder” and serious disability.
At Jacobs & Dow, LLC, our lawyers have an impressive record of verdicts and settlements in shoulder injury cases. We start with a thorough investigation of the incident and carefully review our clients’ medical treatment so that we will understand the effects of an injury and get the financial compensation necessary after a serious shoulder injury.
Shoulder Injuries, Arthritis And More
Traumatic arthritis, a type of damage to bone and cartilage caused by an injury, is common in shoulder injury cases. For some accident victims, arthritis may have been present in the shoulder without pain or other symptoms until the injury caused the arthritis to “light up.”
Insurance companies often claim they are not responsible for such an aggravation of a pre-existing shoulder condition. But the law in Connecticut is clear. A negligent driver causing an accident is legally responsible for all the damage that flows from that accident, including an aggravation of a pre-existing condition
At Jacobs & Dow, LLC, our lawyers have successfully handled hundreds of such cases and recovered full compensation for clients who suffered an aggravation of a pre-existing condition in an accident.
We handle all shoulder injury cases on a contingency basis. There are no attorney fees until you get the recovery you deserve.
