Arm Injury Compensation
If you have injured your arms or hands, it can have a dramatic impact on your life. If you have suffered nerve or bone damage, or amputation leading to the loss of a hand, arm or finger, you may no longer be able to drive, write or work. As well as a loss of earnings associated with problems staying in work, and pain related directly to the injuries themselves, there is psychological trauma caused by limb loss or damage. Our team of specialist personal injury lawyers, based in Wakefield, may be able to help you claim the compensation you may be entitled to.
Make a Claim for an Arm Injury
You may be able to claim two types of compensation: one more concrete form, which reimburses you any direct costs of medical treatment, transport and other related fees; and another more subjective type of compensation which is based on the pain and suffering you have gone through, and on what you would have been able to achieve in life if you had not had the accident.
For the first kind of compensation, it is very important to keep records of all expenses you have made, and you can discuss with your lawyer which records to present as part of your case. For the second type, the amount is at the discretion of the judge, but if you are a crafts-person or artist who works with your hands, for instance, or a musician whose hands are vital to his or her work, you may find that it is easier to get compensation, since the damage that will have been done to your life is clear.
You may be able to claim compensation if someone else was responsible for your injury, whatever the context. Show any bills, receipts or correspondence connected with your injury to our solicitors Wakefield and they will be able to guide you on the next steps to take and the most appropriate course of action. It is even preferable to get one or two witness statements from people who were with you when the incident occurred, or even photographs of the scene where it happened.
