    Hi

    Very recently, I feel off my bike in accident and basically I separated my shoulder (the ligament connecting the acromion and my clavicle). As a result, basic tasks is very hard as I'm having to use my left arm to do most things. Long story short, would I be eligible for DSA? This happened very recently and if so, what things do I need to get in terms of doctors and paperwork?

    Thanks

    I believe DSA is for long term illness as opposed to incidents

    Is it likely to be a long term thing? You'd need evidence stating it will be a long term thing if that's the case.

    It seems that you will fail at the first hurdle; you haven't had the condition for 12 months or more.
