Have you injured your wrist recently – within the last three years? Do you believe a third party’s actions were responsible for you sustaining that injury? If so, you might be wondering what kind of wrist injury claim value you could look forward to if you could make a compensation claim with the assistance of a personal injury lawyer.
Many people want a rough idea of what their claim might be worth if they were to make one. Lawyers have a rough guide to go by that gives minimum and maximum values for compensation issued to injured people for each injury they have suffered. The more serious the injury is, the higher the potential award could be. The award will also vary depending on which part (or parts) of the body are affected.
How bad could a wrist injury be?
It’s possible to sprain a wrist, as well as to break one or more bones in it. Sprains heal more quickly than fractures, but they can still cause pain and restrict the injured person from doing all the things they would usually do without thinking about it.
In some cases, people lose out financially because of their injury. Let’s suppose, for example, you are self-employed and you rely on your hands to work efficiently each day. If someone else triggered an accident in which you hurt your wrist and couldn’t work, you might be able to claim for lost earnings as well as for the injury itself.
