Elbow Injuries In The Workplace
We all know only too well that even a slight bang or bump to the elbow can be extremely painful, if you are unfortunate enough to injure your elbow at work then that pain could be magnified many times over. Damage to the elbow can and often does limit the functionality of the entire arm leading to significant difficulties both at work and at home, as such it is important that you seek treatment as early as possible and it is equally important that you make sure that your injuries are fully healed before returning to work to avoid any long-term medical issues.
The Elbows can be damaged in a variety of different ways but we most commonly see injuries caused by:-
Trips and slips. In our experience this is by far the most common cause of elbow injuries in the workplace. If we slip or trip then the elbow can take the main impact of the fall causing significant damage, sometimes even a break or a fracture.
Impact injuries. Caused by an object or perhaps a vehicle or a machine striking you on the elbow.
Road traffic accidents. As a driver, passenger or a pedestrian.
Repetitive strain. As the name suggests caused by repetitive work/actions. It can sometimes be referred to less formally as tennis elbow or golfers elbow but such expressions can trivialise what are extremely painful and debilitating conditions.
Whatever the cause of your elbow injury we are here to help. Remember it is free to contact us and we only ever accept cases on a no win no fee basis.
