Frozen Shoulder Claims

Frozen shoulder is a joint condition which is characterised by stiffness and pain in the shoulders.  Over a period of time, it can cause the shoulder to become very hard to move.  For its victims, frozen shoulder can be a very frustrating and limiting condition.

There are many factors which are believed to contribute towards the cause of frozen shoulder, although the actual cause is not fully understood.  A person can be at an increased risk of developing the condition if he is suffering from heart disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease or if he has suffered a trauma to the shoulder.

Frozen should can be caused under numerous circumstances.  In the workplace, it can be caused as a result of performing manual handling or heavy lifting tasks over a long period of time.  Therefore, it may be possible to claim make frozen shoulder claims if you have developed the condition at work.

Compensation Amounts

The amount of compensation that can be recovered depends on the extent of the injury.

Past payouts indicate that a claim arising as a result of developing frozen shoulder at work can be settled in the following terms:

Minor injury – if there is no loss of movement and if full recovery is made within a year, a maximum of £2,800 can be obtained.

Moderate injury – if movement of the shoulder is limited and if the injury lasts up to two years, compensation in the region of £2,800 – £5,000 can be obtained.

Severe injury – if the damage is permanent, maximum compensation of £31,000 can be obtained.
