At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

Shoulder and Arm Injuries

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

Where the forces involved in an accident are particularly serious and where the neck has suffered a particularly bad injury either in the form of a severe soft tissue damage or disc damage then it is not uncommon for the pain to radiate from the neck into the shoulder and down into the arm.

That can also lead to symptoms of numbness and tingling down the arm and into the hand and fingers.

The role of the shoulder

From manual handling in the workplace, to playing sports, performing domestic chores and carrying the children around the home, the shoulder is essential to the performance of so many everyday tasks.

As such, if you have suffered a shoulder injury as a result of another person's negligence – for example the actions of an employer or road user – it is essential that you consider your possible right to compensation for pain, suffering, lost earnings and medical expenses.

How much might your claim be worth?

There is a great degree of variation in the size of shoulder injury compensation payouts. However, smaller value claims (for example, minor muscle tears) are usually met with payouts of between £4,000 and £5,000 while claims for shoulder injuries that require surgery and cause longer term disability may be compensable with settlements of around £30,000.
