The shoulders and hips are very flexible joints that allow us to rotate our arms and legs in different directions. Because of this, they are also very susceptible to injury. One of those injuries is a torn labrum or labral tear.
The labrum is a band of cartilage that surrounds the ball socket joint of the hip or shoulder ball socket. Its job is to stabilize the hip and shoulder bones and keep them in place. Many labral tears heal with a combination of rest, physical therapy, and pain and anti-inflammatory medications. However, in some cases, a torn labrum may require more significant therapies, such as surgery.
Regardless of what kind of therapy program your doctor recommends, a torn labrum may have a major impact on your life. It usually takes two months (or longer, if surgery is required) to heal from these kinds of injuries. In the meantime, you may find it difficult to work, drive, or even perform basic tasks, particularly if the tear is in your dominant arm.
Lost income from missed work and medical costs to treat the injury can add up quickly, which can put a strain on your finances. However, if your torn labrum injury resulted from a car crash or other accident, and the incident was not your fault, you may be eligible for compensation for these expenses and losses through a lawsuit.
The process of filing a lawsuit and negotiating for fair compensation is often very difficult without a clear understanding of what that entails. Here are some things to consider as you weigh your legal options and how you can increase your chances of receiving compensation for your injury.
How much and what kind of compensation you can claim in a lawsuit depends on the circumstances of your case. In general, though, if you were hurt in an accident due to no fault of your own, you should be able to claim costs and losses associated with your injury, such as:
