Our Michigan shoulder injury lawyers represent clients who have suffered serious damage to the shoulder or shoulders during a Michigan car accident. Shoulder injuries are painful and can be difficult to fully repair. Many times, victims of shoulder injuries are often left with debilitating long term effects that decrease their mobility and limit their ability to use the shoulder or shoulders during every day activities. Many times, these injuries come in the form of a rotator cuff tear.
Rotator Cuff Shoulder Injuries
The shoulder is a ball and socket joint that is more dynamic than any other joint in the body. Because of the complexity of the shoulder, injuries to it are often difficult to repair. The rotator cuff is comprised of four major muscles that allow movement and stabilization. Damaging these muscles or any of the ligaments holding holding them together can be extremely painful and may require surgery to correct.
Common Rotator Cuff Tear Complications
Below are some of the common issues associated with rotator cuff tears.
- Pain limits the range of motion in the shoulder
- Muscles cannot make adjustments to allow joint to move smoothly
- Fluid accumulation in the joint due to inflammation
- Calcium deposits begin to form, further limiting range of motion
Lawsuits for Michigan Shoulder Injuries
Michigan law states that persons injured in a motor vehicle accident are entitled to several different types of insurance benefits. The first, and most common claim is for Michigan no-fault insurance benefits, which are also known as First Party or PIP benefits. These benefits include payment of medical bills, lost wages, attendant care services, replacement and household services, and other benefits. Additionally, they include the cost of cognitive rehabilitation and training. If the injury is substantial enough, these benefits can often last for the lifetime of the injury victim.
