Get Benefits For Your Rotator Cuff Injury

Many jobs involve some amount of physical labor. When an accident or repetitive motions cause injury to a worker’s shoulder, the pain can be excruciating. A shoulder injury can develop over a period of weeks, months or years. When repetitive motions cause tears in the rotator cuff, many people try to forge ahead due to uncertainty about their future. Without proper treatment, the pain and damage to the shoulder can become more serious. The lawyers at the Law Office of Colonna & Doyle help clients who have suffered shoulder injuries get the compensation they deserve.

What Is The Rotator Cuff?

The rotator cuff is a series of tendons and muscles in the shoulder. Repetitive use of the shoulder to lift items or perform overhead tasks can lead to a rotator cuff injury. Bursitis and tendinitis are common medical issues for workers. However, if your job involves repeat motions that exacerbate a pre-existing shoulder condition you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

We Will Fight For Your Rights

The dedicated attorneys at Colonna & Doyle offer injured workers with the strength of decades of proven experience in obtaining benefits to help our clients recover — physically and financially. Massachusetts law requires employers to provide benefits to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation and lost wages due to work-related injuries. The insurance providers and many companies frequently try to avoid paying for rotator cuff injuries. We draw on our medical knowledge and claim building experience to fight for the rights of our clients.

Workers in nearly any type of industry can suffer a shoulder injury on the job. Office workers can experience shoulder damage while working at a computer if the ergonomics at the desk require working in an awkward position. Drivers frequently suffer rotator cuff injuries through the repetitive motions necessary to keep a rig safely on the road. Other occupations that are commonly associated with rotator cuff tears include:

  • Construction workers
  • Plumbers
  • Carpenters
  • Painters
  • Warehouse and loading dock workers
  • Baggage handlers
