Louisiana Construction Rotator Cuff Injury Lawyer

Louisiana Construction Rotator Cuff Injury Lawyer

A rotator cuff injury is one of the most common types of shoulder injuries and can happen in a variety of ways. Construction workers are exposed to a larger number of these scenarios, especially trip and fall accidents. Your rotator cuff injury may cause you permanent disability if left untreated, or at the very least, decrease your future quality of life.

A Louisiana construction site accident attorney can explain your legal options after a construction site injury, and if necessary, help you file a claim to recover damages.

Most Common Cause of Rotator Cuff Injury

Construction sites are notorious for being littered with debris, holes, and other tripping hazards. Even the cleanest construction site carries a tripping risk because of uneven or loose flooring. A trip and fall accident doesn’t need to involve anything except your body and the ground to cause damage to your rotator cuff. Direct contact with the floor or another object has obvious potential to cause damage; however, a rotator cuff injury can also occur by unnatural twisting or stress applied when trying to prevent a fall.

Symptoms of Rotator Cuff Accident Injury

The physical symptoms of a rotator cuff injury may not appear immediately. In the case of a trip and fall accident, you may feel the immediate pain of the impact and some soreness for a few days, but not realize that the pain is an ongoing problem until a few weeks later. This is why reporting any trip and fall accident at a construction site is important as it is nearly impossible to prove that your injuries resulted from an accident if that accident was never documented.

More serious symptoms from a rotator cuff injury include:

  • Weakness in the shoulder
  • Loss of range of motion
  • The inclination to keep the shoulder immobile
  • Paralysis, in the case of extreme injuries

Contacting a Louisiana Construction Rotator Cuff Injury Lawyer

Because trip and fall accidents that cause rotator cuff injuries can result in long-term problems and future disability, they are not to be taken lightly. If you have reported your injury and are unsatisfied with the insurance company or Workers’ Compensation settlement or would like help with your claim, you should enlist the help of an experienced Louisiana construction site attorney.
