Arm Injury Compensation Claim Information
An arm injury can certainly impede on your everyday life. Arm injuries can range from minor to severe, but all of which could have been avoidable if the accident that caused the arm injury was not your fault. Broken arm compensation claim is generally stripped down into two parts. The first part is compensation for your loss of amenity, pain and suffering, which can vary from person to person. The second part of the claim is loss of earnings and medical expenses, which are usually much easier to calculate. If you have had an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be eligible for compensation.
How do Arm Injury accident claims happen?
An arm injury usually refers to damage of the muscle, tissue or bone in the limb which extends from the shoulder to the wrist. In medical terms, the arm is the upper arm, and the lower being the forearm. Broken arm injuries can happen in a multitude of ways since they are one of the most common bones to be broken in an accident. The most common injury is due to having a slip or a fall and landing with full weight on the arm.

What Type of Arm Injury Compensation can I expect to receive?
Compensation for your loss of amenity and pain/suffering
This compensation describes what the courts have decided as an acceptable amount for arm injuries. In order for this to be established, you will visit a medical professional who will examine you, and your injury. They will discuss and evaluate how long your recovery will be, and whether or not there are likely to be any further complications.
Compensation for your loss of earnings
This compensation covers any financial losses you have occurred due to a result of your injury. For example, if you have had to have time off from work to recover from your broken arm, you can claim the income back. You can also claim any expenses such as mileage and medical treatments you have had to pay due to your injury. If necessary, you can also claim back the expenses of nursing help, if a friend or family member has helped to look after you whilst recovering.
