    Wrist injury claim information and advice

    If you have any questions or need expert advice about accident claims and compensation for your wrist injury claim, talk to one of our friendly, legally trained advisors now, on 0800 689 0500.


    Do you have a wrist injury?

    Wrist injuries are very common, especially when cyclists and motorcyclists are involved in road traffic accidents. Other injuries arise from slips, trips and falls.

    Some injuries can lead to serious and long-lasting effects, such as arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. A complex fracture may need lengthy treatment. Any wrist injury can hamper the use of your hand, impairing mobility and the ability to carry out routine tasks.

    If you injure your wrist in an accident, you need the right help, tailored to your situation. When the accident wasn’t your fault, or was caused by someone else’s negligence, you shouldn’t have to pay for the consequences, or chase around trying to find the right specialist.

    Making a claim for compensation might seem like extra hassle, but we make it simple to get the right advice and help, with just one free phone call. Our support will help you to recover more quickly.

    Compensation can really help to ease the stress, covering medical costs, loss of earnings, housing and travel costs, and continuing care. It also compensates you for the pain and suffering. If you suffer a more serious injury, it can help you adapt your home, car and way of life.


    Why claim for a wrist injury?

    A wrist injury can stop you from doing all kinds of simple but necessary daily tasks, such as getting dressed, driving to work or using a computer.

    Getting the right treatment can be a long process. If you need to take time off work, you may find it difficult to keep up with the mortgage, rent or household bills. You might have to depend on someone else to help you. Claiming compensation for loss of earnings could enable you and your family to cope.

    Cyclists involved in road traffic accidents are especially vulnerable to wrist injuries, such as distal radius and scaphoid fractures. Slips, trips and falls that cause wrist injuries often happen in workplaces and public places, and may be preventable. Employers and owners have a duty to keep you safe.

    When your employer or an owner is negligent, you can claim compensation. For example, if your job involves lifting and you haven’t been trained to do this, you could claim. If a spillage causes you to slip, you could claim.

    Employers and owners are required to have liability insurance, which covers compensation awards – so no one will lose out.


    Can you claim for your wrist injury?

    We help people with a wide range of wrist injuries. Each case is different, but we will work on your behalf to make sure you get the right amount of compensation.

    To make a claim, generally you’ll need to be able to answer ‘yes’ to the following questions:

    • Did the accident happen within the last three years?
    • Did someone else cause the accident?
    • Did you suffer injury?

    As we help you to build your case, we’ll consider:

    • Your pain and suffering
    • Any loss of earnings due to time off work
    • Impact on your ability to work and earn in future
    • The effects your injury has had on your social life and hobbies
    • Costs of medical treatment, medication and home adaptation
    • Any care you’ve received, even if it’s been given for free
