If you’ve injured your arm and it wasn’t your fault, our Personal Injury Solicitors could help you make a claim for compensation. Arm injuries can cause long-term damage and unfortunately serious injuries are common. They can also cause longer term issues such as nerve damage, chronic pain and conditions such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CPRS). It could have had a massive impact meaning you have not been able to work, or could no longer be able to work. You should not be negatively financially impacted and we can help with this as well as getting access to rehabilitation which is paid for as part of your claim.

What constitutes an arm injury?

The law says that an arm injury includes the upper arm, forearm, elbows and wrist.

If it was your dominant arm, the impact can be much more significant so our lawyers will take this into account when they value your claim.

Get in touch with one of our Personal Injury lawyers, who are specialists helping people with arm injuries.  They’ll use their expertise to ensure the full impact of your injury is taken into account to get the compensation you deserve. If you’ve had to take time off work, compensation could help with financial difficulties. If your job was manual, you may need a career change or be at risk of losing your job in the future due to your injury, so compensation can ease these worries too.

We’ll give you a Free Claims Assessment, where we’ll listen to your situation and tell you if we think you have a claim. We try to get you early rehabilitation if you need it, to get you on the road to recovery quickly, before your claim has even settled. We can get you access to the best medical experts and work together to help you recover.

How the Claim Process Works

    1

    You contact us

    Get in touch with Personal Injury Lawyers and for a Free Claims Assessment. We’ll find out how your arm injury has affected your life and tell you about the next steps.

    2

    We’ll contact the other party

    If we think you’ve got a chance of getting compensation, we’ll get in touch with the other party, to ask them to admit liability for your accident and arm injury. This might be your workplace or another firm or supplier. If you got your injury in a public place, it might be a local authority or business.

    3

    We’ll gather evidence

    We’ll start to collect evidence to prove that your injury happened because of someone else’s actions or negligence. This might include CCTV footage, photos, witness statements or logbooks if it happened in your workplace.

    4

    You’ll get a medical assessment

    We’ll send you to an independent medical expert, who will assess your injury and find out about how it has affected your life. We try to intervene early if we think you’d benefit from rehabilitation. Sometimes the other party can send you early interim payments, before the claim is settled.

    5

    We’ll work out the compensation amount

    Based on your medical assessment, we’ll work out how much compensation you’re owed and take this to the other party.

    6

    We’ll settle your claim

    If the other party does not accept liability, then the claim may have to go to Court. Luckily, this doesn’t happen with most personal injury claims. If it does, we’ll keep you informed and provide expert advice throughout the whole process.

  • A road traffic accident – you might have injured your arm if you were a driver, passenger, pedestrian, cyclist etc in a road traffic accident. If we can prove that someone else was fully or partially responsible, you may be able to claim compensation to help you recover and rebuild your life.
