Shoulder Injury Compensation Calculator for Shoulder Injuries & Broken Collar Bone Compensation Payouts

How much is your Shoulder Injury Claim worth?

As with an injury to any part of the body, calculating compensation payout values for a Shoulder Injury Claim or a claim involving a broken collarbone (the clavicle), or Scapula, is never straightforward. That's because it's not just the pain and suffering caused by the injury that must be taken into account. 

On an individual basis, there might be a wide range of factors where further financial compensation must be factored into the case made for the Shoulder Injury Claim.  

Physiologically, the Shoulder is one of the most complex joints in the human body, comprising many smaller joints and bones. This renders the Shoulder one of the most moveable joints but also one of the most susceptible to injury.

The number of daily tasks involving the use of the Shoulders, coupled with its anatomical fragility, means that Shoulder Injury Claims are one of the more prevalent types of accident claims we see.

As well as being prone to sudden injury, the Shoulder is also prone to injury due to various natural causes, including general wear and tear, the degenerative process of aging, and is also be affected by several health conditions including diabetes, Parkinson’s, and heart disease.

If you or someone you know, have been affected by a Shoulder Injury due to the actions or negligence of somebody else, then you are entitled to make a Shoulder Injury Claim claim.

The compensation awarded can be used to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and any loss of earnings, and is based on the severity of the accident.

How are Shoulder Injury Claims and Broken Collarbone Compensation Settlements Calculated?

The levels of compensation you are entitled to are calculated by assessing the two components of your claim, the General Damages, and the Special Damages.

General Damages are calculated based on the levels of pain, suffering, and loss of amenity (PSLA) you’ve experienced as a result of the injury. Your injury will be assessed against the Judicial College injury guidelines to determine the level of compensation for the injury itself and then other factors such as mental anguish and reduction in quality of life will also be considered.

The Special Damages can vary considerably and are awarded to ensure that you are in no way financially disadvantaged by the injury. The sort of things Special Damages will include are:

  • Loss of earnings, past, and future
  • Any medical expenses you have incurred and will incur in the future, e.g. Physio
  • Any additional costs you’ve incurred such as taxi fares to and from the hospital
  •  Any injury-related adaptations you may need to your home or vehicle.
  • Any other financial losses or expenses that are directly attributed to your injury

How much compensation can you expect for a Shoulder Injury or Broken Collarbone Compensation Claim?

Due to the varying severity and nature of each shoulder injury, and the individuality of the Special Damages component of any claim, it is not possible to give a final figure for the full compensation claim until one of PSR Solicitors’ Accredited Personal Injury Solicitors has fully assessed your shoulder injury compensation claim.

Our team will assess every aspect of your injury and financial losses in detail to determine the total amount of compensation you are entitled to claim. The key factors to be considered are the severity of your injury, as well as the physical, psychological, and financial impact the injury has had and will continue to have, on your life at home and work.

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure that the figures below are up to date and accurate, they are intended as a guide only. The figures shown relate to the injury element of the General Damages only and do not factor in any Special Damages that you may also be entitled to.

PSR Solicitors are Shoulder Injury Claim specialists and have a long-standing track record in settling a varied range of shoulder injury and broken collar bone compensation claims.

Common causes of Shoulder Injuries and Broken Collarbones

Due to the considerable use of the shoulder and its anatomical design, the shoulder is prone to injury in a multitude of ways but the most common include:

  • Falling Objects - e.g. An item falling from racking in a warehouse and striking the shoulder
  • Work-related - Inadequate lifting training/heavy item being lifted falling and injuring shoulder
  • Slips, Trips, and Falls - Where an individual lands heavily on the shoulder causing injury
  • Road Traffic Accidents - More severe shoulder injuries including broken shoulders can occur as the result of a vehicle collision or a fall at speed from a bicycle or Motorcycle.
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)* - Constant use of the shoulder in the same motion can sometimes cause a repetitive strain injury to develop over the years.
  • Sports Injury - Dislocated shoulder in a scrum in rugby, a fall from a horse, or a skiing accident

*There is a 3-year window, taken from the date of the injury, in which any personal injury compensation claim needs to be initiated. Because there is no specific incident and no specific date for a repetitive strain injury, the 3-year window start from the date of diagnosis.
