A St. Louis motorcycle accident resulted in a $100,000 policy-limit settlement for a man who was struck by a negligent driver. As a result of the accident, the client suffered a torn rotator cuff, which required surgical intervention.

What is a torn rotator cuff worth? While every case is different and must be judged on its own merits, the personal injury lawyers at Muchnick and Haber were able to obtain a policy-limit settlement. The injury required a left shoulder arthroscopy and debridement for the rotator cuff tear. In addition, the orthopedic surgeon also performed a subacromial decompression with acromioplasty. An arthroscopy is a surgery where a surgeon uses a small camera to examine and sometimes repair damage to the shoulder joint. If there is damage that can be repaired, the surgeon may create additional holes through which he or she will insert surgical instruments to fix the problem.
