It is one of the most common types of injuries for athletes at all levels. Quarterbacks suffer the injury at an alarming rate. Pitchers spend considerable time on an injured list regaining the strength required to throw baseballs that exceed 90 miles an hour. Hockey and basketball players endure the injury when they tumble to the ice and court, respectively.
We are talking about shoulder injuries, which also are one of the most common types of injuries sustained by victims of personal injury incidents.
When you sustain a shoulder injury as a result of a car accident, slip and fall, or medical malpractice, you expect your insurance company to compensate you for the costs associated with the shoulder injury in a timely manner. However, far too many insurance companies either deny valid claims or make lowball compensation offers. If another party committed one or more acts of negligence that caused you harm, you have the right to file a civil lawsuit that seeks monetary damages.
Whether you file an insurance claim or a civil lawsuit that seeks monetary damages, working with one of the experienced personal injury attorneys at Morgan and Morgan can help you recover the costs associated with your shoulder injury. One of the legal services provided by Morgan and Morgan involves working out personal injury shoulder settlements. Your lawyer sits down with a representative from the insurance company to negotiate a favorable financial arrangement.
Personal injury shoulder settlements differ in value based on several factors. First, the severity of the injury plays a role in determining the value of a shoulder settlement. Second, you can expect a higher value for a settlement for a case that involves negligence. Third, the state where you live is a significant factor because some states cap damages, while other states do not place any restrictions on the compensation awarded for civil lawsuits.
