Most people who fracture their arms go on to recover well after their injuries. But what happens if your broken arm caused a disability? A complex or compound fracture that doesn’t heal properly or that gets infected could lead to bone deformity, permanent scarring or even the inability to use your arm properly. This, as you can imagine, can affect the rest of your life, and you may be unable to work or left suffering from anxiety and depression.
If a broken arm disability has changed your life and somebody else caused your accident, Accident Advice Helpline has some good news for you. We have a successful track record helping people claim personal injury compensation – in fact we have over 16 years’ experience, and we’re here to help you get the compensation you are entitled to after your accident.
Unable to work because your broken arm caused a disability?
If you have been left disabled after breaking your arm in an accident, you might be unable to return to work for some time, or you may need to find a new job. Imagine you work in a creative profession – perhaps you’re an artist – and you are left unable to use your arm fully. This can affect the rest of your life, and you could be entitled to claim compensation for lost earnings both now and in the future. It may be that you have suffered permanent scarring after an industrial accident in a factory which fractured your arm.
Working in this type of environment doesn’t have to be dangerous, and if it turns out your employer put you at risk, you could make a 100% no-win, no-fee personal injury claim with Accident Advice Helpline for the psychological trauma you have suffered after your accident, as well as your physical injuries. Being left with a disability can affect your mental health, and it’s not uncommon for anybody who has suffered serious injuries to experience anxiety and depression.

The easiest way to find out if you could be entitled to compensation after breaking your arm is to call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 (or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile).
