Shoulder Injuries

West Des Moines Shoulder Injury Attorneys

A shoulder injury can be caused by heavy lifting, overhead lifting, cumulative stress, or other actions. Lawyer, Dougherty, Palmer & Flansburg, P.L.C. helps workers from a variety of industries who have sustained shoulder injuries. Our clients include Boilermakers and other union members, workers in construction, manufacturing, heavy labor, factories, nursing homes, trucking and other industries.

If you have suffered a shoulder injury in the workplace, contact an attorney from our firm today to discuss your injuries in a free consultation.

We provide comprehensive representation to injured workers. We represent clients throughout all phases of the Workers' Compensation claims process. This includes the initial petition, mediation, representation before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), and through the appeals process if necessary. We help people who suffer from work-related shoulder injuries such as:

  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Associated neck and shoulder pain
  • Dislocated shoulders
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Nerve damage
  • Numbness in hands and fingers

Keep in mind that in most situations an employer hires an employee "as is". This takes into consideration the health conditions you may already have. If your shoulder pain is part of a pre-existing condition, but is further aggravated by your work functions, you may be entitled to benefits. At Lawyer, Dougherty, Palmer & Flansburg, we are knowledgeable about the nuances of Workman's Compensation laws and the ways we can best advance our clients' outcomes.
