Making a claim
Arm injuries sustained in the upper arm, forearm, elbow or wrist can cause serious interruptions to a person’s life and ability to work.
Other types of arm injury such as burns, hard-arm vibration and breaks to the humerus, radius, ulna or wrist bones are quite a common type of workplace injury.
Arm injuries often cause lasting pain and financial hardship due to missed work or outlay on medical bills.
These are common arm injuries that our accident injury lawyers handle on a regular basis. If an arm injury was caused by the act or negligence of someone else, you might be entitled to compensation, lessening the losses and pain of an injury.
To make a compensation claim, regardless of whether you have sustained a minor sprain or fractured arm, the accident must have resulted from a breach of duty by a responsible party.
Our expert accident compensation lawyers must also prove the accident caused your arm injury beyond a reasonable doubt. In most cases of arm fractures, establishing the cause of the accident is straightforward. Proving a link between a breach of duty and select arm injuries, such as RSI, may require further documentation or study.
You may be able to lodge a ‘no win, no fee’ claim if:
- the accident was someone else’s fault
- you are able to prove that your injury was caused by a third party or the company’s negligence
Our lawyers have helped injured parties such as yourself receive compensation for their arm injury including (but not limited to):
- lifting injuries, including those resulting from inadequate training
- broken bones and sprains resulting from falls, slips or trips
- carpal tunnel, RSI and other conditions affecting the upper limbs
- sports injuries (faulty equipment)
- cycling and other road traffic accidents
- Injuries where limbs have been trapped between moving vehicles and equipment

How much compensation can I get?
Compensation should aim to return a person to the position they would have been in if the cause of the injury had never happened.
Precedents show that arm injuries can impair one’s ability to work, making compensation for loss of past and future earnings particularly helpful.
You may make a claim for compensation regarding:
- pain, suffering and loss of mobility
- lost earnings if you have had to take time off work
- future loss of earnings if you are unable to return to work
- the cost of medical treatment and future care
- expenses such as travel costs to and from hospital
