    How to claim broken arm compensation


    A broken arm generally happens when the arm is hit in some way, or when something else strikes it. For example when you fall over you could strike your arm on the ground or on something as you go down, breaking one or more of the bones inside. Similarly if you were hit by something, such as a car for example, you could break one or both arms along with sustaining other injuries.

    There have also been isolated cases where people have suffered a broken arm at work. This is uncommon but it might happen if appropriate health and safety measures have not been in place to prevent such things from occurring.

    How would a broken arm impact your life?

    We tend to take plenty of things for granted in life, don’t we? If you type for a living or work in an office using a computer, you’ll rarely think about your hands or arms, and yet if you broke your arm you couldn’t type very easily one-handed. You wouldn’t be able to drive either, or do any number of other things.

    It’s not just a case of getting appropriate treatment for your broken arm either. If your injury happened because someone else was negligent, this might eventually lead to a broken arm compensation payment being made to you. This will only happen if you are in a situation where someone else caused the accident, or if they didn’t do something that could have prevented it. This latter example is more likely to happen in the workplace. For instance the negligent person may have been required to do a risk assessment before you began your work, but they didn’t do it. This meant the risks associated with that job were not highlighted or minimised prior to you beginning.

    Are you considering trying to claim broken arm compensation?

    There is really nothing to lose in finding out more about compensation of this kind. A professional injury compensation lawyer can help you assess whether or not you might be entitled to such a payment.
