Making a claim for your arm injury
However, your arm injury was caused it can be painful, leave you with limited mobility and could reduce your independence. Even with an arm injury that is classed as a minor, the injury could impact on your daily routines.
It is not uncommon for arm injury sufferers to take time off work for recovery purposes or due to the severity of the arm injury and even lose their job altogether. An arm injury can affect even the smallest of tasks that we usually take for granted such as driving, carrying things, lifting or even using your mobile phone.

- If you have to have any adaptations
- Medical treatment/care or medication you have had to pay for

What is an arm injury?
There are different bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments in the arm, meaning there are a various amount of ways in which it could be injured, but whatever the injury if it has been caused by someone else’s negligence or was someone else’s fault then we could help you make a personal compensation claim.
Your arm extends from your shoulder to your wrist in two sections, the upper arm, from your shoulder to your elbow and your forearm, from your elbow to your wrist. These sections consist of 3 main bones, Radius and Ulna, which are the two large forearm bones and the Humerus, which is the long upper arm bone.
Muscles, tendons and ligaments surround the bones in your arm and an injury sustained to any one of these can lead to pain, stiffness, restricted movement and inflammation, in some severe cases can even result in permanent disability.
An arm injury can also cause associated problems with the hand, wrist and shoulder, therefore, arm injuries can include:
- Fractures and breaks
- Torn biceps – this is known as the “popeye injury” – and/or triceps
- Soft tissue injuries, damage to muscles, tendons and ligaments
- Tennis elbow
- Repetitive strain injury
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
Your arm injury may take a short while to recover from or could have life-long effects meaning on-going treatment, care and medication are required. Whatever your arm injury is, even if it isn’t listed above, as long as it was caused through no fault of your own we could help you claim the compensation you deserve.
