    Compensation for workplace arm injuries


    Trapping your arm in machinery in a factory, slipping on a wet floor or falling downstairs – these types of accidents could all lead to workplace arm injuries, and if you have suffered an injury after an accident at your place of work, did you ever stop to think about claiming personal injury compensation?

    Thousands of people make a claim for personal injury compensation every year – many of them with Accident Advice Helpline – and our personal injury lawyers provide a 100% no win, no fee service, so there’s nothing to lose by getting in touch and making a claim.

    Types of arm injury

    Arm injuries could affect your hands, wrists, forearm or upper arm – even your shoulder and could include fractures, cuts and bruises, lacerations or crush injuries. Whether you work in a factory or an office, the potential for workplace arm injuries to occur is always present, although some environments pose more of a risk to workers than others.

    In particularly hazardous industries, such as the construction or agricultural industries, employers should be even more scrupulous when ensuring that health and safety regulations are adhered to.

    If your employer has breached health and safety regulations and you’ve sustained arm injuries as a result, we could help you claim. Here are a few examples of breaches which could lead to an accident:

    • Failing to carry out a risk assessment or provide safety equipment for staff working at height
    • Not ensuring that scaffolding is properly erected by a competent individual
    • Failing to provide wet floor warning signs for when floors are cleaned
    • Failure to maintain machinery in a factory to a safe standard – such as providing safety guards
    • Not training staff to carry out their work safely

    Life-changing injuries

    Because we use our arms every day, an arm injury can seriously impact your future, especially if it is a serious injury. A complex fracture which doesn’t heal properly could leave you in pain whilst serious crush injuries could even lead to the loss of a limb.

    Losing the full function of your arm might mean taking extended time off work or even leaving your job altogether.

    If this has happened to you, help is at hand. You can call Accident Advice Helpline 24/7 on our freephone number 0800 689 0500. Don’t let a negligent employer get away with causing your accident – take the first steps towards making a personal injury claim today.
