An injury to your elbow can be more painful and disabling than is often realised, sometimes putting your arm out of action totally until it has healed. As the joint where the bones of our upper and lower arms meet, it is very easily injured by a direct blow or excessive exertion. If someone else caused the injury to your elbow, you could be entitled to compensation and you should consider getting the best legal advice in Buckinghamshire about making a personal injury compensation claim.
The best legal advice in Buckinghamshire for elbow injuries
An elbow injury will cause you pain and your arm will probably be stiff. Most of the injuries are preventable. Some of them are caused by excessive twisting such as constantly using a screwdriver or wringing clothes. This type of elbow injury often happens in the workplace, and employers should have precautions in place to reduce the risk of it happening. This could be the cause of such injuries as tennis elbow or golfers elbow, which are very similar.
A direct blow to the elbow can break the bones, and that could happen in any type of accident.
The problem with elbow injuries is that to start with they can feel as though you have a bit of a sore elbow but nothing more. But if they are ignored, the injury will worsen and be a lot harder to treat.
