When you are unable to use your shoulder or arm because of a rotator cuff injury, it can be impossible to perform both your job and your daily tasks. If your rotator cuff was injured while you were on the job, you should talk to an experienced lawyer to find out exactly what options you have. At Hiden, Rott & Oertle, LLP, we have more than 50 years of experience helping our clients in the San Diego area with their rotator cuff or other work-related injury issues.
What Is The Rotator Cuff?
Your rotator cuff helps stabilize the shoulder joint, and assists with movement of the arms. There are four muscles that make up the rotator cuff, and damage to any or all of these can be quite painful. At the very least, because the rotator cuff is used in almost any movement of the shoulder and arm, damage to it can make it difficult or impossible to perform even the most routine tasks.

Rotator cuff injuries are often caused by:
- Repetitive lifting
- Extensive overhead activities (such as painting or lifting)
- Suddenly raising an arm to cushion a fall
- Lifting a heavy object too quickly or in an unnatural motion
Regardless of the reason for a rotator cuff injury, if it occurred while you were at work you may be able to receive workers’ compensation. Our California attorneys can discuss the specific details of your situation with you, and give you a candid assessment of what your legal options are.
