Experienced Bowling Green Lawyer Assists Victims of Shoulder Injuries

Skillful attorney represents employees in workers’ compensation actions

Jobs where heavy lifting or other physical work is required place a great strain on employees’ shoulders. The musculoskeletal structure of the shoulder contains several parts, and untreated injuries could lead to lifelong impairments. Getting quick, effective help should be your priority, and the workers’ compensation system is designed to help victims of employment-related injuries and illnesses get the funds they need to pay for medical costs and lost wages. Unfortunately, proving your case can be difficult, and you might need a skilled Kentucky lawyer to present your side. At Michael D. Lindsey, in Bowling Green, I advocate for victims of workplace shoulder injuries and other types of conditions suffered in the course of employment. No matter what in particular caused your shoulder ailment, I’ll fight to secure the benefits you deserve.

Dedicated firm handles claims involving rotator cuff damage and other harm

Shoulder injuries usually don’t go away on their own, so it’s best to take assertive action if you’ve been hurt at work. Whether the claim relates to a dislocation, impingement, repetitive stress injury or some other condition, my firm offers a free initial consultation, so we can discuss such key factors as:

  • Medical evidence — Three bones come together at the shoulder: the scapula (shoulder blade), clavicle (collarbone) and humerus (upper arm). Two connecting joints and various muscles and tendons, known collectively as the “rotator cuff,” give shoulders strength and the ability to rotate internally and externally. To present a strong argument about this intricate part of the body, I consult with medical professionals who specialize in this area.
  • Types of incidents — Whether you hurt your shoulder lifting something, in a fall or because of repetitive stress, I’ll draw a link between your job and the injury.
  • Possible treatments — Various treatments exist to heal shoulder injuries, including arthroscopic surgery, transferring a segment of bone or full replacement. The shoulder is a complicated body part, and if you believe that your employer or your employer’s insurance company has failed to grasp the severity of your injury, my firm will outline your legal options.

In workers’ compensation proceedings and personal injury lawsuits against negligent third parties, I serve as a strong advocate to help victims get the payment they need to cover medical costs, lost income and more.
