Shoulder injury claims

The busy muscles in the shoulder are vulnerable to a range of injuries in the workplace. These could be traumas sustained from heavy lifting and trips and falls or the strain of repetitive physical tasks.

A number of UK Health and safety regulations stipulate that your employer must put appropriate measures in place to safeguard employees and visitors to the workplace. If you have sustained a shoulder injury at work because your employer has failed to fulfil its obligations, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

If you have injured your shoulder in the course of your work and it wasn’t your fault, then Work Claims Bureau’s specialist personal injury solicitors can represent you in pursuing an award of damages for your injuries and associated losses.

Reasons why your employer could be held responsible for a shoulder injury:

  • Failing to provide proper manual handling training
  • Failing to make the workplace safe
  • Failing to properly risk assess a task
  • Failing to take steps to stop equipment posing a danger to staff

Typical awards in shoulder injury claims

The awards brackets shown* relate to the ‘general damages’ (this means the award for the injury and associated pain, suffering and loss of amenity). There are two elements to any award in a successful accident at work compensation claim: ‘general damages’ and ‘special damages’ (expenses and other material losses arising from the injuries).

Serious shoulder injuries: £11,200 to £16,830

Moderate shoulder injuries: £6,920 to £11,200

Minor shoulder injuries
(including soft tissue injury to shoulder with considerable pain but almost complete recovery): £1,200 to £6,920

Fracture of Clavicle: £4,520 to £10,730

Additional losses and expenses

On top of any ‘general damages’ award, if your claim is successful, you will also recover an award for any other expenses and losses you’ve suffered as a result of your injuries. These might include:
