The legal team of Larson Law Firm P.C. assists injured accident victims, and we have a long track record of success securing settlements and successful verdicts.
What is a rotator cuff injury?
The shoulder joint is surrounded by a group of muscles and tendons called the rotator cuff, which keeps the top of the upper arm bone inside the shoulder socket. Rotor cuff injuries are considered soft tissue injuries and, as such, may be difficult to diagnose. Rotator cuff injuries may include simple inflammation that presents with a dull ache located in the shoulder region, which worsens when resting on that side of your body. A more serious rotor cuff injury, such as a tear, can cause long-term pain and disability. In some of the most severe cases, surgery may be required to repair the tear or replace the joint.
A knowledgeable injury lawyer understands that rotator cuff and shoulder injuries can result from any number of accidents, including slip and falls, playground accidents and car accidents. Performing repeated overhead motions can also result in rotor cuff injuries. Athletes are particularly prone to this injury for this reason, especially tennis and baseball players. Certain areas of employment, such as carpentry, painting or window cleaning also require repetitive overhead motions and may result in workplace injuries to the shoulder.

In addition to the long-term physical pain that accompanies a severe rotator cuff injury, there can be other consequences that affect quality of life.
