In Illinois Work Comp, shoulder and arm injuries are common. However, it is important to know several things before you settle your case.

Shoulder and arm injuries come in various forms. Such as rotator cuff tears, labral tears, biceps tears, impingement, cubital tunnel, elbow injuries, and fractures. Usually the most serious injuries involve surgeries, and result in some form of restrictions.

The use of your arms and shoulders are a critical part of almost every job.

Before you settle your Work Comp claim you need to find out your restrictions. You also need to know if you need future surgeries or medical treatment, or medications. You will also need to know if you can keep doing your former job.

All of these factors- future medical needs, restrictions, job limitations- must be factored into your settlement.
