Shoulder Injuries And Workers’ Compensation
Shoulder injuries sustained as the result of occupational risk or due to an accident on the job can be a severe and painful concern. They can not only affect a workers’ quality of life but also their ability to perform their duties on a temporary or permanent basis.
The shoulder is a complex hinge joint that is highly susceptible to injuries that can require delicate and potentially expensive treatments. However, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation if your shoulder injury was sustained on-the-job.
At Thill & Freeman, PLLC, we have protected the rights of injured individuals at the workplace for over 30 years. After discussing your case in detail, our attorney will evaluate your case to determine and suggest different legal paths to address your needs.

Despite the general perception that only construction workers may suffer shoulder injuries, other employees may also be injured due to their professional activities. The list of affected workers includes teachers, office workers, warehouse employees and waiters.
Some common shoulder injuries include dislocation, fracture, and muscle and tendon tears. Symptoms may vary but can include the following:
- “Frozen” shoulder (an inability to rotate/move a shoulder)

- Shoulder pain that manifests when moving the arms or reaching up
- Reduced range of motion
