If you’ve broken your arm in an accident, you’re probably wondering whether or not you’re eligible to claim personal injury compensation. The answer really depends on whether or not anybody else was responsible for your accident. Many people simply don’t realise that they’re eligible to make a claim for minor injuries – or they assume that because their injury has healed, they’re no longer able to make a personal injury claim. This couldn’t be further from the truth. After healing a broken arm, you still have time to make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline. In fact there is a three-year time limit in place for all personal injury claims, so you have three years after the date of your accident to find out more about making a claim.
What happens after healing a broken arm?
Healing a broken arm can take months – in some cases, for example if you have fractured your humerus, it can take up to a year for you to fully recover. Whilst you’re off work after your accident, it’s a great time to think about whether or not you want to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation. You may already be certain who is responsible for your accident, or you may feel that somebody else was responsible but be unsure.

With over 16 years’ experience, you can trust us to help you get the compensation you are entitled to – and in most cases you won’t even have to go to court, as most claims are settled before that stage is reached.
