The Long of it
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
- 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.

Making a claim
How do I make an arm, wrist and hand injury claim?
Arm, wrist and hand injuries can negatively affect both your life and the lives of those close to you. Simple tasks like washing your hair, dressing yourself and preparing food become impossible, and quite often you become reliant on those around you to help.
Injuries to the arm, wrist and hand can occur due to the negligence of somebody else, and for that you have a right to claim compensation. If your accident has occurred within the last three years, and somebody has failed in their duty of care towards you, speak to us today about arranging a compensation claim.
Our dedicated personal injury solicitors are here to help. We understand that beginning a compensation claim can seem like a daunting task, but we take the hassle out of it for you. We handle all the legal stuff, plus we operate a no win no fee policy, meaning if we aren’t successful in our claim, you don’t have to pay any solicitors fees.
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.
Whatever the type of injury, we always strive to produce the best result for you, so that you can get your life back on track.
