Arm Injury Compensation Claims

If you’ve suffered an arm injury, the effects may have a serious impact on your life. From accidents to repetitive strain, our solicitors will provide expert advice and strive to secure you the best compensation settlement for your arm injury.

How To Make An Arm Injury Claim

Your first step is to call us on 0800 056 4110 to set up your free initial consultation. We’ll look at details such as who you believe is at fault, where your injury occurred, and how it affected your life.

If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that factors in your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.

If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.

We can help you claim for:

  • A broken arm, wrist, hand or fingers
  • Muscle injury
  • Tendon injury
  • Dislocations
  • Tennis elbow
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Hand arm vibration syndrome
  • Amputation.

The effects of an arm injury can range from short-term to life-changing. In addition to compensation, we can also help you access rehabilitation and physiotherapy if needed.

How Long Do You Have To Make An Arm Injury Claim?

If you’ve suffered an arm injury, generally, you’ll have three years from the date of the incident to make a claim. However, there are a few exceptions to these time limits, for example, criminal assault claims have a two-year time limit.

No matter how your injury occurred, we recommend you get in touch with us as soon as possible. The earlier we can start work on your claim, the easier it is for us to gather evidence about what happened to you.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For An Arm Injury?

As every claim is different, compensation amounts are awarded on a case-by-case basis. The severity of your arm injury is a crucial factor – amputation, for example, would generally result in a much larger settlement than if you suffered a broken arm.

Our claims injury specialists will assess:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Rehabilitation and physiotherapy costs
  • Inability to partake in leisure activities
  • Long-term effects such as retraining or loss of movement.

No Win No Fee Arm Injury Claims

The majority of our arm injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from the compensation you receive.

Why Choose Us?

Our personal injury specialists handle arm injury claims just like yours every day. Our experts can help you to secure the settlement you deserve as well as interim payments (where applicable) for ongoing treatment.

We understand how debilitating an arm injury can be, so we strive to ensure your losses are compensated. If needed, our client liaison teams can help you access physiotherapy and rehabilitation courses to help you get back on track.

Arm Injury Claims - More Information
    • What If I Don't qualify for no win no fee?
    • If your case doesn’t meet the no win, no fee criteria, there may be other options available to you.

      You may have Legal Expenses Insurance on your home insurance policy, for example, or you may be a member of a trade union which covers legal expenses. We’ll discuss the best options for you during your initial consultation. 

    • Who Will pay my compensation?
    • You may have suffered an arm injury in the workplace. Your employer has a legal obligation to keep you safe at work. If you feel your employer has failed to safeguard your health, you may be able to claim.

      If you’re claiming against an employer, a public body or a driver, your claim will most likely be settled by insurance companies. For criminal assault claims, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) will pay out if the person who assaulted you doesn’t have the means to pay.

    • Are there exceptions to the three-year time limit?
    • Adults can make claims for children up until their 18th birthday. If they reach 18 and a claim hasn’t been made for them, they can make their own claim up until their 21st birthday.

      There’s no time limit to make claims on behalf of people who lack the mental capacity to make a claim themselves.

      If your claim relates to a criminal assault, generally the limit is two years. However, this can be extended in some circumstances, for example if you were too ill to claim.

      If you were injured by a faulty product, you’ll have 10 years from the product launch date to make a claim.

      Finally, if the injury happened abroad, the time limit may be shorter. We can advise you on specific regions.

      Regardless of the circumstances of your injury, get in touch with us as soon as possible. The earlier you contact us, the easier it is for us to gather evidence to support your claim. 

    • What are interim compensation payments?
    • Where applicable, interim compensation payments cover ongoing costs while you recover from your arm injury, for example, travel expenses to and from hospital. These funds are awarded before your final settlement and will be deducted from your final compensation amount. We’ll let you know if we think you will benefit from interim compensation payments.

    • what if my opponent doesn't accept responsibility?
    • We always try to negotiate an out-of-court settlement for you as this is generally less stressful for all parties, particularly during difficult recovery periods. If your opponent denies responsibility or disagrees with the proposed settlement, we’ll begin court proceedings.

      Often, even when trial dates have been set, claims are settled before reaching court. If it does go to court, we’ll guide you through every step.

I will always hold Irwin Mitchell in the highest of regard. Best decision I ever made to choose them. Thank you."
