SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

You use your arms all of the time for a whole host of day-to-day activities, and so a serious injury to them can be extremely debilitating, as well as painful. It can affect everything from brushing your teeth to typing or exercising and may mean you need to take time off work to recuperate, resulting in a loss of income.

If you or a loved one has suffered an arm injury that was someone else's fault, you should contact the expert team of personal injury solicitors at Forbes today to claim the compensation you deserve.

Types of arm injury

As the arm is so complex, there are many kinds of injury that can be suffered, from breaks and dislocations to burns so it's important to recognise the kind of injury you have suffered.

The most common injuries are to the upper arm and forearm as these are the most commonly in use day-to-day. Injuries can include:

  • Broken bones
  • Dislocation
  • Fractures
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Burns

The wrist, meanwhile, is most commonly injured by falling. This can cause breaks, fractures or sprains, which can be incredibly painful and debilitating. The wrist can also be prone to carpal tunnel syndrome, which is where a nerve becomes compressed which causes a feeling of numbness, a pins and needles sensation and even weakness, giving severe discomfort and often requiring time off work.

Elbow injuries can be extremely serious, often leaving you in pain and unable to move your arm. Sports accidents tend to be the main - but by no means only - cause of elbow injuries thanks to incorrect technique or physical contact resulting in breaks or dislocations. 'Tennis elbow', meanwhile, is caused by repetitive tasks using the same motion for long periods of time. It can cause excessive pain, making basic everyday jobs difficult.

The shoulder is another regular point of injury, often suffering due to manual labour, sports accidents and lifting heavy objects incorrectly. Breaks and dislocations are a common but serious occurrence and recovery can take a long time, keeping you out of work.

Amputation is another form of serious injury that can affect the arm and is completely life-altering. If you have suffered an amputation either through accident or medical negligence, you should read our dedicated amputations page.
