If you have injured your shoulder in a Southern California car accident, then you may be getting resistance from the insurance company on paying you fair compensation for your injury. Insurance companies tend to deny claims associated with rotator cuff tears, as they believe these injuries are a result of continuous repetitive movement rather than an injury caused from a serious impact.
Insurance companies may find literature and medical reports that indicate that rotator cuff tears are caused by repetitive motion. They may present you with this information to try and avoid paying you compensation for your shoulder injury, or at least use this information to pay you as little money as possible.
You will need an attorney who has experience in working with traumatic injuries such as rotator cuff tears. An experienced personal injury attorney in Southern California will be able to argue with the insurance company and present evidence from doctors and medical literature that show how rotator cuff tears can be caused by the impact involved in a car accident.
Shoulder and rotator cuff injuries occur because of car accidents, motorcycle crashes, and trucking accidents. If you have suffered a shoulder injury and need to undergo a rotator cuff repair, then you will need compensation for your medical bills, instances of pain and suffering, physical therapy, and lost wages. Since you have been impacted by the injury, you have a right to seek fair compensation from the negligent driver.
