X-ray image of skeleton and shoulder From physical labor to typing on a computer, a shoulder injury can be very disabling. You may be unable to work for a while. You may need surgery. You may find everyday tasks painful and difficult.

At the law offices of E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy, we take the steps to get our clients full compensation for the aftermath of an accident. We know how a tear or fracture in the shoulder joint affects employment and daily living, and our experienced attorneys are skilled at convincing insurance companies to settle for a fair amount.

Did the negligence of others — a vehicle crash, a construction accident, or a fall on unsafe property — cause your shoulder injury? Contact us now to discuss your rights. We represent the injured in the Capital District and throughout Upstate New York.

Experienced Rotator Cuff Injury Lawyers

The E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy firm has handled injury litigation for decades. We are familiar with every type of injury to the shoulder joint and arms:

  • Torn rotator cuff
  • Torn labrum, including SLAP tear
  • Separated shoulder (AC injury)
  • Dislocated shoulder
  • Fractured humerus (upper arm bone)
  • Broken scapula (shoulder blade)
  • Broken clavicle (collar bone)
  • Torn biceps
  • Frozen shoulder/adhesive capsulitis

The shoulder joint is a complex mechanism of bones, sockets, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. When the joint is disrupted or those connective tissues are torn, as in the violent wrenching of an auto accident, that arm may be rendered all but useless. We work with your doctors to document the specific injury, loss of range of motion, lost strength, and level of pain, and to determine your treatment needs, including surgical repair or physical rehab.

We take everything into account in pursuing your damages: lost earning capacity, medical care costs, permanent or long-term disability, and pain and suffering. We are prepared to take your case to a jury, but our record of success at trial usually brings the insurance companies to the settlement table.
