Understanding Rotator Cuff Injuries

The rotator cuff refers to the muscles and tendons that support the shoulder joint. This joint is a relatively shallow ball and socket joint that has a wide range of motion. The supporting muscles and tendons are crucial for anyone's mobility, but people who use this part of the body the most are often lifting or performing overhead motions in their daily work.

Muscle tears and dislocated shoulders can happen in a variety of professions, but some common jobs that result in rotator cuff injuries include:

  • Construction workers
  • Painters
  • Movers
  • Custodians

At The Law Offices of Carolina K. Tumminelli, PLLC, we work with people who have suffered a shoulder injury at work or in an accident caused by another party's negligence. For years, we have been the go-to law firm for people in Chelmsford, Nashua and throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire, helping clients recover the maximum compensation possible for what they have suffered.

Showing The True Cause Of A Repetitive Motion Injury

Unlike accident injuries that involve a clear, definitive trauma, rotator cuff injuries can sometimes arise out of ongoing use and gradual tears. People tend to work through the pain for as long as possible, only seeking treatment when the pain has become unbearable or has made it impossible to do their jobs.

As a result, many claims for repetitive motion injuries are challenged by workers' compensation insurance providers because of how gradually the injuries develop. The claim you file must show a definitive correlation between your injury and your workplace activities. This requires a depth of medical knowledge and persuasive presentation of evidence in the legal realm, and warrants experienced representation from an injury claim attorney.
