A serious shoulder injury is nothing to take lightly. Heavy lifting and repetitive movements required in many jobs can cause tendon, ligament and muscle tears that can take months to recover from, and may even cause permanent impairment and disability.
If you work in agriculture, at a packing plant, in manufacturing, or the construction field, you face the potential for these kinds of injuries on a daily basis. If you sustained a rotator cuff injury, bicep tendon tear, or repetitive motion injury resulting from accumulated trauma, it is important that you obtain medical treatment and compensation for your injuries.
Des Moines shoulder injury attorney John T. Hemminger has represented injured clients for more than 30 years. As a highly skilled trial litigator and negotiator, he provides clients with the justice and compensation they need after suffering serious shoulder injuries.
Medical Care and Compensation for Workers with Injured Shoulders
Depending on the circumstances of your workplace injury, you may be eligible to pursue workers’ compensation or third-party damages to pay for your medical costs, lost wages, temporary and permanent disability, and other expenses.
You will obtain the best results if you retain an experienced attorney who understands the complexities of workers’ compensation laws.
Why? Employers and their insurance companies may not give your injuries the proper attention. They may, however, seek to drive down your compensation, minimize your disability and compensation to which you are entitled. Mr. Hemminger and the other personal injury lawyers at Hemminger Law Firm, in Des Moines, Iowa, are effective at getting what injured workers need from employers, insurance companies and other liable parties. Whatever your employer or its insurance company is offering for your injury, chances are we can obtain much more on your behalf.
