Car accidents cause many injuries to all areas of the body. One common shoulder injury you may sustain from a car accident is a torn labrum. The labrum is the cartilage tissue attached and surrounding your shoulder socket to help keep the ball of the joint set in place. A torn labrum can require surgery and a painful, lengthy recovery. There is no exact amount a victim of a torn labrum can except due to many variables that are unique to each individual case. Some examples of settlements received for a torn labrum include:

- $275,000- car accident resulting in torn labrum along with other injuries, requiring surgery.
