If you injure your shoulder in a trip and fall accident in Pennsylvania and experience severe pain, you should seek immediate medical treatment and consult with a Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer. You may have suffered a rotator cuff injury.

If your doctor suspects that you have a severe rotator cuff injury, he or she may order any of the following tests to get a definitive diagnosis: 

  • physical exam;
  • X-rays;
  • ultrasound;
  • MRI scan; or
  • arthrogram. 


Treatment for a Rotator Cuff Injury

Once a diagnosis is confirmed, you may have to undergo physical therapy in the weeks following your rotator cuff injury. Physical therapy will: 

  • help your rotator cuff injury heal;
  • improve the range of motion in your shoulder;
  • increase muscle flexibility; and
  • help balance muscle strength.


In some cases, steroid injections may be administered to ease pain and inflammation. If there is a tear in your rotator cuff, you may be required to undergo surgery.

A Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer will explain your legal options and help you seek compensation for your rotator cuff injury.  You may be able to recover damages for medical expenses, physical and emotional pain and suffering, lost wages, and altered quality of life.

It would be in your best interest to contact a Philadelphia slip and fall lawyer as quickly as possible so evidence can be collected and preserved. To learn more about slip and fall injuries, please visit our article library.
