    Compensation for wrist ligament damage


    Compensation for wrist ligament damage

    The ligaments in our wrists are prone to damage if we brace ourselves after a fall, but they could also be damaged in a variety of other accidents.

    If you have suffered wrist ligament damage, it can affect your ability to move your hands without pain, which may mean taking time off work until your injury has healed – this could take weeks, and in cases of severe wrist ligament damage, even months.

    Chronic pain can be debilitating, and if your wrist injury has left you suffering, Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim the compensation you deserve.

    With 15 years’ experience handling personal injury claims, our personal injury advisers are here to offer confidential advice and answer your questions – there’s no obligation to proceed with a claim.

    Serious wrist injuries

    Our wrists connect our hands to our arms and are one of the hardest working parts of our bodies. No matter what your profession, you use your hands to do your job, and wrist ligament damage could make that painful or even impossible. How does this type of injury occur?

    • Falls from height landing on your wrist
    • Bracing yourself after a slip or trip can tear ligaments
    • Being struck on the wrist by objects
    • Crush injuries can fracture bones and tear ligaments

    Whether your injuries were caused at work or on a day off, if somebody else is to blame, they deserve to be held liable for your accident. Maybe you tripped on a loose paving stone in town and fell, landing on your wrist? Your local council could be to blame if they haven’t maintained the pavement to a safe standard.

    If you’ve suffered a wrist injury at work due to being struck on the wrist by falling objects (such as tools falling off scaffolding), you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim. Our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, which means even if you’re suffering financially after your accident, you can afford to claim.

    Will you go to court?

    Many people avoid claiming personal injury compensation after a wrist injury as they’re worried about going to court – don’t be.

    Most claims are settled out of court and it’s unlikely you’ll need to go. You deserve to be compensated if somebody else’s negligence has caused your injuries, and we’ll support you throughout the claims process.
