    The consequences of serious arm injuries


    How would you get by without the use of one of your arms? It is only when one of them becomes immobile that you realise how much you do each day that relies on you having both of them to use.

    In some cases, the consequences of serious arm injuries can potentially be far-reaching. For example, some accidents can result in a broken bone sticking through the skin. When this happens, surgery is likely to be required to fix it. It may well take longer to heal as well. In other situations, other injuries may continually cause problems for a long time to come, with some of the strength in that arm being sacrificed as a result.

    How can such injuries happen?

    This kind of thing can happen in all manner of different ways. A fall from height could result in injuries like these. Broken arms can happen in lots of ways, but they do generally heal. However, there are ways in which injuries can occur that jeopardise the arm itself. If your arm became caught in machinery at work, for example – something that is fortunately very rare indeed – you may lose it altogether. Even if it can be saved, you may lose some or all feeling in it if nerve damage is severe.

    Arm injuries can also be sustained in car accidents, or even accidents in other locations. A freak accident at the gym could potentially lead to a series of weights falling on your arm from faulty equipment. This is a mere example, but it shows how things can happen that can change your life in an instant.

    What can we do to help?

    When you suffer the consequences of serious arm injuries, it is only natural to work out whether someone else caused those injuries to occur. If this was the case, perhaps at work or in an accident caused by another person, you are entitled to press ahead with a compensation claim. We can handle such a claim on a no win, no fee basis, if you do indeed have a good case.
