When an injury involves the shoulder, the pain is almost always constant and can be debilitating. Every motion—from standing up to laying down can be excruciating. Rotator cuff and shoulder injuries can result from falls, heavy lifting, repetitive motion and much more. One thing is for certain: if the injury is the result of the work you do, or has been aggravated due to your work duties, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for your medical treatment, lost wages, disability and potentially more.
Fighting to get the compensation you deserve can be difficult, as many insurance companies fight claims for shoulder injuries, arguing that the injury is due to other factors, such as arthritis or degenerative joint disease. Don’t fall victim to the system and the big insurance companies whose sole purpose is to minimize the amount of money they have to pay out.
If you’re dealing with a rotator cuff or other shoulder injury, our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Georgelis Injury Law Firm can advocate for you throughout the process—from the initial filing or defense of a petition filed against you, to subsequent hearings through a workers’ compensation judge’s ultimate decision. We have aggressively fought for many others like you, who were being bullied into getting less than they deserved. We have recovered more than $50,000,000.00 for our clients who have suffered an injury—and we can help you too!

The most common symptom of a rotator cuff injury is pain felt on the outside of the shoulder that can sometimes radiate down the arm to the elbow. Other symptoms include:
The following factors may increase your risk of having a rotator cuff injury:
