Helping employees nationwide who have been injured on the job
Many different jobs require certain activities that may cause injury to your shoulder or rotator cuff. Painters, construction workers, warehouse employees, or anyone else that regularly engages in overhead job duties or heavy lifting may begin to experience pain due to damage to the muscles and tendons around the shoulder joint. Additionally, these injuries may occur due to an accident that causes a tear in your shoulder.
Shoulder and rotator cuff injuries can be severe and may prevent you from returning to work. Anyone who sustained a job-related injury should consult with the Law Office of Kenneth P. Carp at 636-947-3600 as soon as possible.
Shoulder and rotator cuff injuries and surgeries can require extensive treatment
Injuries to the rotator cuff or shoulder can cause the following symptoms:
• Pain and constant aching
• Very limited range of motion for your arm and shoulder
• Reduced strength in your arm
• Effects on your sleep patterns due to pain and discomfort
Often, in order to recover from this type of injury, an individual requires intensive physical therapy and often surgery to repair the damage to the soft tissue. Surgical patients often have their shoulder and arm immobilized for weeks following the procedures and may take months to return to normal range of motion or strength.
During this time, benefits from your state workers’ compensation program can provide valuable assistance including compensation for lost wages, medical treatment, payment for temporary disability, and more.
