One of the most common injuries I see as a Norfolk car crash injury lawyer is the rotator cuff injury. This part of the body is quite vulnerable to traumatic injures as it consists of small muscle tissue that hold your arm into its socket at the shoulder joint.
There are two main types of rotator cuff injuries. The first is called degenerative, which refers to the wear and tear overtime of the rotator cuff. The second, and one that I deal with most as a personal injury attorney is the acute, traumatic injury that results in a sudden tear of the muscle. This is a common injury for people involved in car accidents as well as slip and fall victims.
The healing process for a rotator cuff injury can occasionally be an extended period of rest, but usually the injury requires a medical procedure such a surgery.
Rotator cuff injuries are very serious and painful, so if you think you may have one I encourage you to see a medical professional, and if you believe your injury came from an auto accident or a similarly traumatic event, give me a call at 757-455-0077.
