Common Work Injury: Torn Rotator Cuff

Michigan lawyer explains how a shoulder injury that happened at work is covered under workers compensation.

We see many individuals who have suffered a shoulder injury at work and are denied workers compensation benefits. These injuries tend to occur from lifting or repetitive arm activities.  This is especially true for individuals who do throwing and overhead work.

Insurance companies frequently dispute these types of shoulder injuries because of incidental findings of arthritis. Almost everyone has some arthritis and it does not mean that you did not suffer a real injury at work.
