Arm Injury Compensation Claims
While we have extensive experience of all types of arm injuries we tend to see four types in the main:-
Skeletal injuries – Broken and fractured bones. No one cause of such injuries stands out more than others although falls and trips often result in bone damage, not least of all as we instinctively put our hands or arms out to try and cushion any impact so the arms can take the brunt of the damage caused by a fall. Likewise if you hear a warning shout about an object falling towards you then quite naturally you lift your arms to cover your head and while such a move may well protect you from a serious head injury it can be at the expense of a nasty arm injury.
Burns and cuts – Very common injuries from all work sectors ranging from factories to construction sites to kitchens and beyond. Not only can such injuries be extremely painful at the time but the effects can last a lifetime if they result in scarring or disfigurement.
Muscular injuries – Often caused by lifting objects that are too heavy or using incorrect lifting techniques. Such injuries are frequently made worse by the sufferer trying to carry on working rather than allowing the injury to heal – perhaps even feeling pressurised by your employer to do so.
Repetitive strain injuries (RSI) – These injuries are not accidents as such but rather the culmination of poor working practices and conditions over time. RSI injuries are usually due to poor training, overwork and lack of breaks – frequently a combination of all three.
As outlined above arm injuries can cover a very wide spectrum so it is crucial that the solicitors you speak to have the knowledge and experience to correctly assess and value your case. Thankfully that is exactly what our solicitors have so you know that you are in the best of hands from the start to the finish of your claim.
