    How to claim wrist injury compensation


    We don’t tend to think a lot about our wrists and how they help us lift and move things, and do all kinds of different tasks. From painting to cooking and typing to driving, there are numerous things we’d find a lot harder to do if we didn’t have that flex our wrists provide us with.

    Of course, we realise just how much we rely on our wrists to do when we sustain some kind of injury to one of them (or both, if we are unlucky). This can happen in assorted ways, either through an accident or because we do the same things repetitively, which in turn can cause injuries of one type or another.

    Who might be able to claim wrist injury compensation?

    Anyone who has received a wrist injury that was essentially caused by a third party could receive compensation if there is enough proof to indicate this was the case. For example, if you had an accident, perhaps on a bike or in a car, or even while on foot, and you injured your wrist because of something someone else did, you could have a chance to claim. Sometimes, someone might neglect to do something, such as stop at a red light or a crossing, and that could lead to you being injured.

    In other cases wrist injuries can develop over a longer period of time. If you work in an office and you are always typing, this can lead to conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome or repetitive strain injury (RSI). This in turn can result in wrist pain that can limit your range of movements. If your employer does nothing to change the way you work to make your wrist injury easier to manage, they might be negligent under health and safety law.

    How can you find out more?

    As you can probably tell, some situations are far more difficult to assess than others. When you want to know whether wrist injury compensation is possible, you want clear answers. This makes a big difference to how things go from here.
