Why make an arm injury compensation claim?
Suffering an arm injury is likely to have caused you pain and resulted in you having to take time off work. This has probably resulted in a loss of income.
If your arm injury was caused by somebody else, you have a right to be compensated for the effect your injury has had on your life. That includes if your arm was injured by a burn, fracture, slip or fall or in a car accident caused by somebody else.
Your compensation may also include money to cover the costs of private physiotherapy, or in more serious cases, adaptations to your home or car.
If you were injured at work, while out and about, or by defective equipment, by making an arm injury claim you may be able to prevent somebody else from experiencing an injury like yours.
If you’re claiming against an employer for not having the correct safety measures in place, you’ll be highlighting unsafe conditions by making a claim.

Types of arm injuries
Below are some examples of arm injuries we’ve helped people claim compensation for.
If your type of injury isn’t listed below, don’t worry. We’re happy to talk through your injury and find out how we can help you.
Your forearm is vital to lifting, driving and a number of daily activities that we do without a second thought. Fractures are the most common injury to a forearm and can happen to either of the bones making the forearm, the ulna or radius. This can happen as part of a larger arm injury from aslip or fall, or in isolation from impact, such as an impact caused by a sporting accident or car accident.
Your forearm can also be easily burnt if you’ve not been provided the correct safety equipment in a kitchen or when working with chemicals.
Repetitive strain injury
Claims for repetitive strain injury can sometimes be complicated. To help you understand how you can make a compensation claim for your repetitive strain injury we’ve created a page about this injury type and our experience here.
The muscles and tendons in your elbow are vital to its mobility. If you’ve overused your elbow due to poor working practices in your job, or from impact during a sporting accident or car accident, then you may be able to claim for the loss of mobility, pain and the effect that has had on your daily life.
We have a page dedicated to our work with hand injury claims. You can read more about our experience with hand injuries here.
Vibration white finger
Vibration white finger is most common caused by using vibrating machinery at work. If you’re suffering vibration white finger and your employer didn’t inform you that this was a possible side effect of your job, you may be able to claim. You can read more about vibration white finger here.
Your wrist is made up of eight bones, and can become easily injured through repetitive use or impact. If you’ve fallen and damaged your wrist as a result, including a fracture or tendon damage, then we may be able to help you claim.
Alternatively, you might be suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, which can be a common wrist injury.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is where a nerve in your wrist has been compressed, causing numbness, weakness and ‘pins and needles’.
The sensation of numbness or weakness in your wrist and hand may have gradually become worse over time.
Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by injuries to your wrist. For example, you may have hurt your wrist during a sporting activity. If this injury was at least partly someone else’s fault, you may be able to claim compensation.
It is believed that repetitive or strenuous work can also cause carpal tunnel syndrome to develop. Call us on 0800 540 4258 to find out more about this and whether your claim is likely to be successful.
