    How to claim fractured wrist compensation


    A fractured wrist is a painful injury that can take a few weeks to properly heal. There are a number of bones in each wrist that could be fractured if you experience this injury. This is one of the reasons why you should seek medical advice if you have hurt your wrist and you cannot move it, or it is very painful to do so. Confirmation of a fracture will ensure you get the proper treatment so the bones can heal in the best way.

    People often break a wrist if they fall over, since it is instinctive to put your hand out to try and break your fall. This can prevent you from knocking your face or head on the ground, but your hands and wrists will take the strain. In some cases this can be enough to break one or more bones in one or both wrists.

    Examples of accidents that could result in a fractured wrist

    A fall can result in this injury occurring, but the fall itself could happen in a number of ways. For example if a motorcyclist comes off their bike, or indeed a cyclist experiences much the same accident, a broken wrist could result.

    People have suffered this injury at work as well, particularly if they experience a fall from height. The greater the impact of the person hitting the floor, the more chance there is of the break being quite severe. In some cases people will be entitled to claim fractured wrist compensation because someone else caused their accident to happen. This may be the case if someone is hurt at work and their employer is found negligent, or if someone else caused a road accident in which someone else was injured.

    Considering your chances of winning fractured wrist compensation

    This compensation can be paid out if you have ample proof that someone else was the cause of your accident. The amount a successful claim will result in could depend on how serious the accident was. For example, a simple break may not receive as much in compensation as a serious break that required surgery, and resulted in you being off work and financially challenged for a period of time.
