Whether you’ve had an accident or suffered a repetitive strain injury, wrist injuries can have a serious effect on your day-to-day life. Our personal injury solicitors understand how disruptive a wrist injury can be, which is why we strive to get you the compensation you deserve.

How To Make A Wrist Injury Claim

Start by calling us on 0800 056 4110 for your free initial consultation. We’ll go through how the injury happened, who you feel is at fault, and how your life has been affected.

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 takes into account 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 to claim for:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Dislocation
  • Breaks and fractures
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Osteoarthritis caused by work.

Wrist injuries may result in a loss of earnings, or you may need to retrain completely if you can no longer manage your role. We can help you arrange rehabilitation and may be able to secure interim compensation payments, which can help with costs such as hospital travel to your appointments.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Wrist Injury Claim?

The time limits for wrist injury claims apply to either the date you had an accident, or the date you realised your wrist was injured (for example if a doctor diagnosed you with repetitive strain injury). You generally have three years in which to make a claim, though there are exceptions, such as if you were abroad or if the injury happened as a result of a criminal assault.

We suggest that you get in touch with us as soon as possible. The earlier you get in touch, the easier it may be for us to gather evidence to support your claim.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Wrist Injury?

There are no set compensation amounts for wrist injuries because every claim is different. Whether you’re seeking broken wrist compensation, fractured wrist compensation, or a settlement for another injury, we’ll determine the amount based on:

  • The severity of the damage
  • Loss of earnings
  • Inability to take part in everyday activities
  • Whether or not you’ll need ongoing treatment.

Where applicable, we can also help with interim compensation payments, which can cover costs such as travel to hospital appointments.

No Win No Fee Wrist Injury Claims

Most of our wrist 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 your final compensation.
