Stratford Workplace Shoulder Injury Lawyer

Shoulder Injuries Affect Your Work And Your Life

Of any joint in the human body, the shoulder has the greatest range of motion. Arms and shoulders are involved in nearly every physical activity. When a shoulder injury such as a full or partial rotator cuff tear occurs, nearly every part of the victim’s life is impacted.

At Morizio Law Firm, P.C., in Bridgeport/Stratford, Connecticut, we have extensive experience helping those injured on the job. Our legal team — including two board-certified workers’ compensation specialists — understands the anatomy of a shoulder injury and the limitations it can bring to a person’s life.

If you or a loved one has suffered a painful upper extremity injury while working or suffered shoulder damage over time, we can help you recover the benefits you may be entitled to. Contact us to arrange a free consultation with a qualified workers’ compensation attorney.

What Is A Rotator Cuff Injury?

The rotator cuff is made up of the tendons and muscles in the shoulder. These tendons and muscles connect the shoulder blade to the upper arm.

Rotator cuff injuries are among the most common shoulder injuries. They often result from work-related accidents, falls or years of overuse.

What Are The Symptoms Of A Rotator Cuff Injury?

As with any shoulder injury, pain is the most significant symptom in a rotator cuff injury. It tends to worsen when a person reaches overhead or carries a heavy object. Beyond pain, victims of a rotator cuff injury may experience a loss in shoulder range of motion and a feeling of wanting to keep their shoulder immobilized.

Shoulder/Rotator Cuff Injury Treatment

Shoulder and rotator cuff injuries are often diagnosed using a series of tests. These tests can include:

  • Physical examination
  • X-rays
  • Ultrasound
  • MRI scan
  • Arthrogram

Following diagnosis of a shoulder or rotator cuff injury, your doctor may suggest physical therapy to improve your range of motion and increase muscle flexibility caused by tendonitis. To relieve short-term pain, you may be given steroid injections. In serious cases when a rotator cuff is torn, surgery may be required.

In addition to handling shoulder and rotator cuff injuries, our firm represents clients who have suffered wrist and elbow injuries.
