Arm injuries are among the most debilitating workplace injuries. For individuals whose arms have been mangled, dismembered or seriously injured in another way, the workers’ compensation system can be especially challenging. While workers’ compensation benefits are supposed to provide coverage for lost wages and medical care, all too often individuals can find themselves battling with an insurance company to obtain even the most basic care.
Without proper representation, individuals sometimes spend years trying to put their lives back together again. Having a workers’ compensation attorney on your side who is knowledgeable about the law and who has the ability to obtain results is vital if you have been injured.

Sore Shoulder? Why You Should Not Wait To Get It Checked Out.
Many people face an uphill battle when trying to get compensated for a shoulder or arm injury because they did not get examined by a doctor soon enough. If you have a sore shoulder or your shoulder hurts when you move it, get in to see a doctor right away. Insurance companies frequently deny claims for shoulder injuries when workers wait a long time before seeking help.
Common Shoulder And Arm Injuries
Shoulder injuries are by far the most common arm injuries. It is not unusual for a person who slips or trips at work to put out an arm to catch themselves and damaging or tearing the rotator cuff. Rotator cuff tears and labral tears may prevent you from being able to do work that requires you to reach overhead.
How Much Compensation Will I Receive?
Each state runs its own workers’ compensation system and has its own caps on the benefits a person may receive. In Minnesota, the amount of compensation you receive for an injury to the shoulder or arm will depend largely on the location of the injury.
Compensation for an arm injury will depend on where on the arm the injury took place. Injuries to the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder are all compensated differently. The closer to the shoulder, the higher the award.
