Beware of Unfair Tactics Used by Claims Adjusters

As a former insurance defense attorney, Stephen W. Stewart is very familiar with the tactics used by insurance claims adjusters on the other side of an accident equation. For example, it wouldn't be uncommon for a negligent driver's insurer to claim that the victim's shoulder injury was caused by their occupation rather than by an accident, or vice versa.

Some insurance claims adjusters blame victims, saying their injuries occurred because they were overweight, when in fact, the injuries were the result of someone else's negligence. The Stewart Law Firm, PLLC strongly advocates for our clients, often overcoming such arguments from the other side. Our Austin injury lawyer won’t settle for less than you deserve.

Common Types of Rotator Cuff Injuries

The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles situated around the shoulder joint. Injuries to the rotator cuff can include rotator cuff tendinitis, rotator cuff impingement syndrome and rotator cuff tears. These injuries can be sustained through repetitive motion or by a single trauma, such as in a car accident. If you have sustained a rotator cuff injury, your physician may order you to rest, take painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs, go to physical therapy, and perhaps have surgery.

If you’ve suffered a shoulder injury, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Therapy and rehabilitation
  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future loss of wages
  • Emotional pain / mental anguish
  • Physical pain and suffering
