Shoulder Dislocation

Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Charleston & nearby areas of South Carolina

In many situations involving a serious injury to the arm or shoulder, the shoulder may actually pop out of its socket. Dislocated shoulders, although not life-threatening injuries, may cause a significant amount of pain or discomfort for the injured individual. In addition to the problem of needing to reset the bone into the socket, dislocation injuries may require recovery time for damaged tendons as well as treatment for injury done to any local blood vessels.

If you have sustained a serious injury because of another person’s negligent behavior, you may have grounds for legal action. Contact the Charleston personal injury lawyers of the Steinberg Law Firm by calling 843-720-2800 to discuss your legal options today.

SYMPTOMS OF A DISLOCATED SHOULDER

Some of the most common causes of shoulder dislocation include direct trauma, sustained during events like traffic accidents or falls. Electrocution and seizures can also generate enough force to dislocate the shoulder.

Upon diagnosis, the most common form of treatment is to place the arm in a sling and keep the patient from moving it. If the damage to the tendons or surrounding tissue needs more intensive repairs, surgery may be warranted.
