Recovering from a broken arm after an accident at work or in a public place can take time, but for many people who have been injured in an accident there is a more pressing concern. Who is going to pay the bills when you take time off work to recover after your accident? Even minor fractures can take six to eight weeks to heal and during that time you may be unable to work, drive, or take part in your usual activities.
If somebody else caused your accident, then you may find you are able to make a claim for personal injury compensation, provided it has been three years or less since your accident happened. Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings, helping you out financially after your accident.
How long could broken arm recovery take?
In the case of more serious fractures, broken arm recovery could take months, and you’re likely to need physiotherapy after your surgery and recovery time. This could mean taking a substantial amount of time off work, which can seriously affect your earnings. Even if your employer pays you sick pay this can be a lot less than your normal salary and you still have your rent or mortgage to pay as well as all your usual household expenses.
It might be that you are the main earner for your household, which can put a serious dent in your finances if you are left unable to work. When you make a personal injury claim, Accident Advice Helpline will take these things into account, so you could be compensated for your financial losses as a result of your accident and injury.
