In this case study we are going to look at the case of Mrs C (as we have named her here to protect her privacy), a 38-year-old woman whose life was turned upside down after she suffered a shoulder impingement in a road traffic accident. At the time of the accident, Mrs C worked as a charity fundraiser. Mrs C’s accident occurred when her car was hit by another vehicle from behind, causing a second rebound impact.
What Injuries were Sustained During this Case?
Mrs C suffered extensive damage to the nerves and was later diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome. This is a neurological condition which was caused by the secondary impact of the accident. The condition caused her intense chronic pain on her shoulder, arm hand and neck, which included pins and needles, hypersensitivity to touch, being a different temperature and colour to the rest of her body. Despite treatment, these symptoms remained permanent. She also experienced temporary pain in the legs, causing her to rely on crutches for an extended period of time. Overtime Mrs C underwent treatment for her shoulder injury including surgery and arthroscope subacromial decompression and capsular release. Unfortunately, there was little improvement in her condition.
Unfortunately, the extent of Mrs C’s injuries meant that she had to leave her job. Although she tried to start a business where she could work from home at her own pace, she found that the chronic pain she suffered was too debilitating, meaning that she was no longer able to work. Mrs C’s entire family were affected by the injury as she had a young family she was no longer able to care for. In the end, her husband had to leave his own job and take on a work from home job to care for her and their children. She also required specialist care, equipment, and appliances to help manage her condition at home. Mrs C’s ordeal traumatic ordeal left her with lasting psychological damage including anxiety and depression.
A Breakdown of Liability and the Compensation Award for a Shoulder Impingement Injury
Mrs C’s legal team made multiple allegations against the Defendant, the driver who drove his car into the back of Mrs C’s car, on account of his negligent driving. The Defendant admitted full liability and his insurer had to pay Mrs C damages.
Mrs C was awarded personal injury compensation for her shoulder injury and the subsequent consequences to her health and quality of life of over £500,000. Mrs C was compensated for pain suffering and loss of amenity, loss of earnings, future loss of earnings, medical expenses, future medical expenses and the cost of care, equipment, and appliances that Mrs C will need to have at home, amongst other forms of shoulder injury compensation.
