    Arm, wrist and hand injuries

    Arm, wrist and hand injury claims

    Injuries to your arm, wrist and hand can affect your quality of life. Aside from the pain experienced due to the injury, you may find that you are unable to complete normal, everyday tasks.

    Your performance at work may suffer, and you may find that you need to take time off to aid the healing process. This could mean that you will experience a loss of earnings, having a damaging effect on your life and the lives of your loved ones.

    Some symptoms experienced as a result of such injuries can include

    • shooting pains in the arms, wrist or hand
    • inflammation
    • numbness
    • severe pain in the affected areas
    • persistent throbbing or dull pain when using your arm, wrist or hand
    • persistent throbbing or dull pain when resting your arm, wrist or hand
    • inability to grip objects, turn door handles, type on a computer keyboard

    It is possible to sustain injuries to your arm, hand and wrist at home, in the workplace, in public places and in road traffic accidents. However, if the accident was not your fault, someone else may be liable to provide you with financial compensation.

    How much compensation?

    How much compensation for arm, wrist and hand injuries?

    As with all personal injury claims, the compensation you could receive on your claim can vary. It is dependent on the severity of your injury, and what long-lasting effects you may experience as a result. If somebody is found to have been grossly negligent in their duty of care to you, you may find that the sum will be larger.
