Rotator cuff tears and torn ligaments are among the shoulder injuries that can affect New York construction workers.
The shoulder has a greater range of motion than any other joint in the human body and is actively involved in many on-the-job physical tasks performed by construction workers. Therefore, when a construction worker suffers an injury to his or her shoulder, the effects can be life changing and possibly career ending. If the shoulder injury victim is unable to recover the full use of the affected arm, he or she may be facing long-term disability.
