Arm Injury Compensation Claims
If you happen to suffer an injury to your arms that was not your fault then the law recognises the inconvenience of this and accordingly you can make a claim for compensation against the party that caused the injury. Arm injuries can happen in any number of ways and it is not possible to list all the different causes. The most common arm injuries for which a compensation claims are made are as follows:
- road traffic accidents
- accidents at work
- industrial accidents
- medical negligence
- slips, trips or falls
As a result of the above, or any other accident, there are a number of ways in which you can injury the arm from minor bruises to ligament damage and fractures. The amount of compensation you can claim for an arm injury will depend upon the seriousness of the injury. The following is a rough guide of the compensation levels based on a combination of government guidelines and the amounts awarded by the courts in previously decided arm injury cases:
- minor arm injury – up to £4,000
- fracture – up to £12,000
- serious arm injury – over £80,000
- arm amputation – over £180,000
In addition to compensation for your arm injury you can also claim for any consequential losses and future losses such as physiotherapy and other medical bills, travel expenses, loss of income and so on.
