Shoulder Injury Settlements : Rotator Cuff Tear & Surgery

Rotator Cuff Surgery Settlement Torn Tear Shoulder Car Accident Slip
At JZ helps, I have settled and keep up with jury verdicts and settlements for accident cases where the injured person has a shoulder injury or torn rotator cuff - and possibly surgery - whether from a car accident, slip and fall, and more.
 
I discuss those settlements and verdicts here and tell you how to best handle your case so that you can fight to get the biggest settlement possible.
 
Surgery on a torn rotator cuff and/or shoulder surgery can be the result of many types of accidents as well; I’ll often discuss how they intersect. One of the things that a lot of torn rotator cuff and shoulder injury cases require is understanding fault, causation and damages, so you’ll find that a lot of the posts below discuss those.
