The Delayed Diagnosis Of A Rotator Cuff Injury
One of the things that separates an experienced personal injury attorney from the rest of the pack is a thorough understanding of the nuances of these cases. One of those nuances is the importance of not immediately going after a settlement and instead waiting until the full extent of the injuries is understood by doctors.
The importance of waiting is often obvious in rotator cuff tear cases. This injury may not be immediately diagnosed. A victim of an auto accident or any other type of accident may go to the doctor reporting shoulder pain. The doctor may prescribe physical therapy or cortisone injections, hoping that will take care of the pain. Months may pass before the doctor recommends an MRI, which will show the tear. If we pursued compensation before the MRI took place, we would likely not obtain enough to cover the cost of treating this severe injury. That is why patience is important in these cases.
At Jacobs & Dow, LLC, the understanding of the nuances possessed by our New Haven shoulder injury lawyers has led to an impressive record of verdicts and settlements. We design every case to obtain maximum compensation.
