Dedicated Chicago Shoulder and Arm Injury Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

All types of workers can suffer all types of shoulder and arm injuries. At Malman Law, we help injured workers throughout the Chicagoland area seek medical and disability benefits for shoulder and arm injuries through workers’ compensation.

Almost no matter what you do for work, your shoulders and arms get a daily workout. Over time, regular use of your shoulders and arms can lead to chronic, painful injuries. Major traumatic events, such as slips and falls, auto accidents, and lifting heavy objects can cause debilitating injuries as well. If you have suffered a shoulder or arm injury due to repetitive stress or a traumatic event at work in the Chicagoland area, the lawyers at Malman Law can help you seek full medical and disability benefits through workers’ compensation.

Do I Need a Workers’ Compensation Attorney?

While employers and their insurance companies are supposed to pay benefits to covered employees who suffer injuries within the scope of their employment, rarely do they do so voluntarily. Delays, improper denials, and unreasonably-low settlement offers are just a few of the tactics that companies in and around Chicago regularly use in order to avoid paying benefits to injured workers. The only way to make sure these companies don’t take advantage of you is to have a full understanding of your legal rights, and this requires having an experienced workers’ compensation attorney on your side.

At Malman Law, we have helped thousands of clients secure millions of dollars in financial compensation for their injuries. We know how to prevent delays and overcome improper denials, and we are committed to ensuring that every single one of our clients receives the largest possible compensation award for his or her injuries. This commitment has resulted in a 95 percent success rate helping our clients secure just compensation. To put our experience on your side, call today for a free consultation.

Common Work-Related Shoulder and Arm Injuries

From tendonitis to broken bones, all types of shoulder and arm injuries can make it difficult or impossible for people to do their jobs. Shoulder and arm injuries require careful diagnosis, and often require extensive treatment, rehabilitation, and recovery.

There is no specific set of shoulder and arm injuries that entitle injured employees to workers’ compensation: If you are injured on the job, regardless of the injury you suffer, in most cases you are going to be entitled to benefits for your medical expenses and lost wages.


Some of the types of shoulder and arm injuries we most commonly see include the following:

  • Dislocated shoulders – A dislocated shoulder is an injury in which the upper arm bone comes out of the socket in the shoulder blade. Shoulder dislocations can result from both repetitive stress and acute traumatic events. Repeated injuries can lead to chronic weakness and instability.
  • Fractures – Shoulder and arm fractures are common in traumatic accidents such as vehicle collisions and falls. While some fractures will heal over time, others require surgery and extensive rehabilitation.
  • Labral tears – When you brace yourself for a fall, the pressure placed on your wrist can cause the cartilage surrounding the ball-and-socket joint in your shoulder (called the “labrum”) to tear. Labral tears can be extremely painful and are often identified by sensations of catching, locking, or grinding in the shoulder.
  • Separated shoulders – A separated shoulder is an injury that involves tearing of the ligaments that connect the collar bone to the shoulder blade. Separated shoulders are common in falls, collisions, and impacts between foreign objects (such as tools or construction materials) and the shoulder.
  • Sprains and strains – Sprains involve stretching or tearing of ligaments, and strains involve stretching or tearing of tendons. Ligaments and tendons are different but equally important types of connective tissue that play critical roles in the proper function of your shoulders and arms. Sprains and strains can not only be extremely painful, but can also cause limited mobility that prevents injury victims from doing their jobs.
  • Tendonitis – Tendonitis is a condition that arises due to inflammation in the tissue connecting your bones to your muscles. Tendonitis can result from both repetitive stress and traumatic events, and can affect the shoulder, elbow, and wrist.
  • Loss of limbs – Some workers tragically suffer the loss of their arms in work-related accidents. From machinery accidents to vehicle collisions, we represent clients who have lost limbs in all types of situations.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
