San Diego Rotator Cuff Injury Lawyers
Rotator Cuff Tears in an Accident
Anyone who has played sports like baseball, tennis, swimming, or volleyball can speak of the dangers associated with a rotator cuff injury. Overuse and repetitive motions such as pitching and swinging can lead to a gradual destabilization of the muscles surrounding the shoulder socket. In turn, this can lead to significant pain and a loss of feeling in the arm. Many coaches and trainers are well aware of the symptoms and can head off any serious trouble. But, what happens if you're involved in an accident and your rotator cuff gets torn?
Then you may have grounds to take legal action against the responsible party. You'll need strong representation to see your case through to the end. You'll need a firm like Jurewitz Law Group to make sure your interests are heard.

What is a Rotator Cuff Injury?
Your upper arm is connected to your shoulder socket and is given mobility by it's ball and joint connection there. It is a powerful and unique piece of physical engineering. But, to maximize your arms' movement, you need a stabilizer to keep it all together. Otherwise, your arm would just fall out of joint and fall to your side limp. Your rotator cuff is a layer of muscles that coats the upper shoulder and holds everything in place. They allow you to extend your arm in a variety of directions.
While most people associate rotator cuff injuries to professional baseball pitchers, just about anyone can suffer one. One bad fall on the pavement, collision with another motor vehicle, or hyperextension at work can land you in the hospital with a rotator cuff injury. Depending on the type of injury, you may need surgery in to restore arm function. Even then, there may be permanent limited mobility.
