Torn Rotator Cuff Injuries And Workers’ Comp
The rotator cuff stabilizes the shoulder joint and assists with the arm’s movement. Any damage to any of the four muscles that comprise the cuff can create shoulder pain, spasms and limited range of motions that can last years and prevent normal work-related tasks. To make matters worse, fluid or calcium accumulation can worsen the injury.
An injury to the rotator cuff is often caused by:
- Repetitive lifting
- Extensive overhead activities (such as painting or lifting)
- Suddenly raising an arm to cushion a fall
- Lifting a heavy object too quickly or in an unnatural motion
These types of injuries can actually be difficult to detect, and in some cases, invisible. Insurance adjusters are well-aware of this and will do everything they can to exploit this aspect of the injury in an effort to deny payouts. Because of this added layer of complexity, it is all the more important to work with an attorney who has a comprehensive knowledge of these injuries to advocate for you.
