Did You Hurt Your Shoulder At Work?

Shoulder injuries are common among workers who often lift heavy loads or twist their upper bodies as part of their work duties. Delivery truck company workers such as FedEx deliverymen and women are prime examples of people at risk of shoulder injuries on the job. As is the case with most workplace accidents, third-party liability is sometimes a factor. If someone other than your employer made a mistake at your workplace and you suffered a shoulder injury as a result, you may have both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury lawsuit to file.

If you suffered a traumatic shoulder injury on the job in Connecticut, discuss your case with a workplace accident lawyer at the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke in the Bridgeport area. Your shoulder injury may have been a sudden occurrence or doctors may say it developed over time. In either case, you will likely need medical treatments and replacement of lost wages.
