Many different kinds of workers can suffer shoulder cuff injuries. If your job involves lifting activities, placing objects on an overhead shelf or other repeated arm motions, those activities can cause damage to your rotator cuff: the muscles and tendons that connect your upper arm bone with your shoulder blade.
At Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe, our lawyers represent workers who suffer shoulder cuff and other types of job-related injuries. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions. With offices in Harrisburg and Enola, we represent injured workers throughout central Pennsylvania.
Helping Injured Workers Get the Benefits They Deserve
If you are injured on the job, you are entitled to benefits from workers' compensation, including lost wages, free medical care for as long as you are injured and compensation for permanent injury. Unfortunately, the insurance companies that handle workers' compensation claims have a financial incentive to deny claims or terminate benefits before the injured worker is ready to return to work.
If your employer has stopped your benefits or released you to work before you are ready, it's important to contact a workers' compensation lawyer as soon as possible. If you wait too long, you will give up your right to appeal the decision. In addition, if you turn down a light duty assignment, your benefits may be terminated and you could lose your job.
If you have any concerns about your medical care or benefits, don't wait to seek legal advice. Our lawyers can help you obtain the medical care you need and the benefits you deserve. We handle appeals of denied claims, lump-sum settlements, and disputes over medical care or benefits.
