How Much Is the Typical Shoulder Injury Settlement?


Shoulder injury cases in Maryland awarded $25,378 per case, on average, from Jan. 1, 2011, to June 30, 2012, according to Maryland Workers' Compensation. The state saw $50.5 million distributed over 1,990 cases within that time span for shoulder injuries alone.

In Florida, rotator cuff tear settlement values range from $40,000 to $70,000, notes JZ Helps. The settlement range for rotator cuff surgery starts at $100,000 and rises to $175,000 in Florida. Factors that change these amounts include where the surgery or treatments are performed and how much disability occurs as a result of the shoulder injury. Documentation and expert testimony may alter the settlement amount as well.
