If you’re a worker that has experienced a shoulder injury on the job, you can contact an experienced lawyer for Long Island work accident compensation. Having work related injuries can often be confusing for workers who may expect to get right back to work. If you have shoulder pain, getting back to work is the last thing you would want to do because the condition could worsen.
A shoulder strain can result from the muscle being stretched or torn. Having an injury that involves a sprain or strain can lead to treatment of limited movement and rest.
When the shoulder joint becomes out of place, the shoulder is said to be dislocated. This types of work injury can occur from a fall or a heavy object striking the individual. An injured worker can tell if they have this type of injury because they wouldn’t be able to move the joint. It doesn’t just happen in the shoulder area, but can have the potential to occur in all joints of the body.
Impingement of Shoulder
Having a work injury that involves shoulder impingement comes from rubbing the muscles of the shoulder on the acromion, or top part of the shoulder blade. Workers that have to perform repetitive movements like overhead arm motions are likely to cause this type of work injury.

A rotator cuff injury impairs the ability to lift your arms and reach overhead. This injury can often involve extensive rehabilitation. If an injury of this type occurs, it is imperative to seek medical attention.
