    What to do after an arm injury at work


    Do you ever think about how you use your hands and arms, and what you might do if you suddenly found you couldn’t use one of them because of an injury of some kind? Few of us really think about the ways we use our arms and hands, but if we were to suffer an arm injury of some kind, we would very soon realise many things become more difficult to do.

    If you have ever had an arm injury at work, you will know these things can happen very quickly indeed. While any kind of work injury is a rarity, thankfully, there are times when things do go wrong. An arm injury could range from deep cuts or wounds to broken bones and even amputation. Fortunately, the vast majority of employers take every step they can to prevent such incidents from happening.

    Swift treatment can make a lot of difference

    Every business should have at least one first aid person on-site to provide immediate care in the event of an accident or illness. As such, any injury could be prevented from getting worse while more involved medical treatment is sought. Sometimes you may seek medical advice on your own, by visiting your GP or nearest A&E department. However, there are times when an emergency ambulance would need to be called to ensure you can get the proper care.

    Recovering from an arm injury at work can take time. Some people will recover fully, while others will take time to get better. In some cases, people never fully regain the use of that arm; obviously where an amputation is concerned, things will never be the same again.

    Are you entitled to compensation?

    Any work-related injury is worth looking into with regard to the chance of claiming compensation. There are times when you may be entitled to claim, because you have proof of negligence on behalf of another individual. Even if you are unsure, however, we would encourage you to call the experts at Accident Advice Helpline to see whether you could make a claim.
