Most people who fracture their arm will heal up nicely, and be able to return to work shortly after their broken bones have healed. But what happens if your broken arm healed wrong? This can happen, and if you have been left with a physical deformity or you’re in pain, you may find you are able to make a personal injury claim, provided it has been three years or less since your accident. Being left permanently scarred or disabled after breaking your arm can affect the rest of your life – you may be unable to work, or you could be left suffering from anxiety and depression. Whatever has happened, you can contact Accident Advice Helpline for confidential advice after your accident; we have over 16 years’ experience in the personal injury claims industry.
Your broken arm healed wrong; who’s to blame?
If your broken arm healed wrong then it can be tempting to assign blame, but it’s important to think logically about who is actually at fault for your accident. It may be that you were injured after a fall at work, or an industrial accident which left you suffering from a complex or compound fracture. If your bones have healed wrongly and left you with a deformity or weakness, your employer could be held liable and they may have to pay you compensation not only for your physical injuries but also for any psychological trauma you have suffered as a result, and any loss of earnings you have experienced, both now and in the future (for example, if you have been left unable to work).
Even if you’re unsure who is to blame for your accident, you can get advice from Accident Advice Helpline. Since 2000, we have helped hundreds of people claim compensation after they have broken their arm in an accident – and we could help you too.
