Arm Injury Claims
We can help you make an arm injury claim
We know how painful and restricting arm injuries can be. Even with less serious arm injuries, your ability to carry on with your normal routines and daily habits can be severely affected.
For example, you may have been unable to work during your recovery or have lost your job altogether. Your arm injury is also likely to have affected your ability to carry out work tasks such as driving, lifting or carrying, or even typing on a keyboard.
Compensation could help to take some of the pressure away so that you can focus on recovering. Your claim could cover the costs of:
- Lost earnings due to time off work
- Medical treatment
- Travel and accommodation for you and your family
- Rent or mortgage payments while you’re left unable to earn
We aim to make the process as simple and stress free as possible by putting you in touch with the right solicitor for your case and cutting out the legal jargon so you know exactly what to expect.
Do you have a claim?
If your arm injury happened within the last three years and was somebody else’s fault, then it’s likely we can help you make an arm injury claim.
We realise it can often be difficult to know who’s fault an accident was, but the best way to find out is to get in touch with our advisors on 0800 540 4258 for free, helpful advice.
All our advisors are legally trained, which means they’ll be able to let you know whether they think somebody was at fault for your injury and whether you can make a claim.
You can also use our online claim checker tool which estimates whether you have a claim based on your answers to some simple questions.

Types of arm injuries
No matter what type of arm injury you’ve suffered, we may be able to help you claim compensation if it was caused due to someone else’s fault or negligent behaviour.
Below are some examples of the types in arm injuries you could claim for. If your experience isn’t listed, then don’t worry – there’s still a good chance we can help you.
- Forearm injuries
- Elbow injuries
- Hand injuries
- Wrist injuries

Repetitive strain injury (RSI)
Repetitive strain injury is when repetitive movements cause pain or damage in muscles, tendons and nerves.
This type of injury can often affect the arm due to an accident at work. For example, if you work in an office repetitive strain injury can be caused by typing or sitting in an uncomfortable position.
We know you may not consider RSI to have impacted your life, but we’ve seen how it can limit people’s ability to carry out everyday tasks, as well as being physically painful.
Vibration white finger
Vibration white finger is most commonly caused by using vibrating machinery at work. If your employer didn’t warn you about this condition and tell you how to avoid it, then it’s likely we can help you.
Vibration white finger can be a lasting workplace condition that affects you for the rest of your life. This is especially true in the more severe cases where vibration white finger can affect your blood vessels, nerves, joints and muscles.

Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused when a nerve in your wrist has been compressed. Symptoms can include numbness, weakness and ‘pins and needles’, and these may have become worse over time.
Carpal tunnel injuries can cause constant discomfort and can affect your ability to rest and sleep, as symptoms often become worse at night.
