Calculating compensation for a shoulder injury or broken collar bone is never straightforward, there are so many varying factors that affect the levels of compensation you are entitled to.
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 claim PSR Solicitors’ Personal Injury Lawyers deal with.
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 ageing, and is also be affected by several health conditions including diabetes, Parkinson’s, and heart disease.
If you, a family member, or a friend, 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 compensation 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.
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:
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.

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:
*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.
Dislocation - Where the ball joint of the shoulder comes out of its socket. Can be intensely painful and can cause damage to the surrounding tissues
Osteoarthritis - Affects many joints in the body and is often considered “wear and tear”.
Rheumatoid Arthritis - Inflammation of the joints, again it can affect any joint in the body.
Frozen Shoulder - Inflammation causes restriction of movement and pain. Can be associated with other health conditions such as heart disease and lung disease.
Bursitis - Inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that cushion the joints around your body.
Tendonitis - Injury of the shoulder tendon, causing joint pain, stiffness, and restricted mobility. Tends to be a gradual process.
Instability - This occurs when the top of the upper arm bone is forced out of the shoulder socket. Can be caused by a sudden injury or from general wear and tear.
Chronic Instability - This is where the shoulder dislocates, making it more susceptible to repeatedly becoming dislocated.
Soft tissue injuries - A tear to the Rotator Cuff or the Labral. Can be caused by a sudden injury or overuse.
If you have suffered a shoulder injury and there is evidence of third-party liability, then you are within your rights to seek compensation.
