If you sustained an injury to the shoulder or elbow at work, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. Whether the injury was caused by a one-time accident or by repetitive motion over a long time period, if your employer or a third party is found liable for your injury they may be obligated to pay for any medical bills, lost wages, and physical or emotional pain and suffering you have endured as a result of the injury.
At The Previant Law Firm, S.C., our dedicated injury lawyers have obtained significant damage awards for numerous workers' compensation clients in Milwaukee and throughout Wisconsin. We have worked hard for hard-working people for over 100 years.

Types of Shoulder & Elbow Injuries
Our Milwaukee repetitive motion injury attorneys recognize that some professions are more likely than others to result in shoulder and elbow injuries. Even if you had a pre-existing condition, you still may be able to collect workers' compensation if your employment aggravated the condition. If you have any questions about your shoulder or elbow injury, engage a qualified work injury attorney to explain the nuances of your legal situation.
Common work-related shoulder and elbow injuries may include:
- Dislocated shoulder or elbow
- Rotator cuff injury
- Nerve damage
- Tennis elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Strains or sprains
If you experience any of these symptoms, it is worth investigating whether you have a workers' compensation claim. Our Milwaukee work injury lawyers can walk you through the legal process from beginning to end. Even if you believe you may be partly at fault for your injury, your employer may still be required by law to contribute to your speedy and complete rehabilitation.
Understanding Workers' Compensation
At Wisconsin’s oldest workers' compensation law firm, The Previant Law Firm, S.C. has the experience and resources to build a solid workers' compensation case on your behalf after a shoulder or elbow injury. If you were injured on the job, your employer or a third party, such as an equipment manufacturer, may be liable for your injury. Employers are obligated to provide an appropriately safe work environment for their employees. An employer who breaches that duty by putting employees in an unsafe environment may be liable to pay for any resulting damage.
