Are you thinking of claiming compensation for a broken wrist and arthritis after a no-fault accident? A broken wrist is extremely painful, and can easily lead to arthritis. The ongoing pain and discomfort can also be difficult to tolerate, particularly if it has been caused by the negligence of someone else.
How to know if you’re eligible to make a claim
You may have a legitimate claim if you meet the following three criteria:
- The accident was not your fault – the claim is made against someone else who has acted negligently, and so you must not be to blame for causing the accident
- It must have taken place within the last three years – the timescale runs from the accident date to the start date of your claim
- Your injuries need to have been treated by a medical professional
If you remain unsure about your eligibility, our friendly helpline advisors can discuss your case with you to clarify your situation.
How much compensation for a broken wrist and arthritis?
The amount of compensation you might receive will probably influence your decision about whether or not to claim. We can offer you an estimate of the potential award – you just need to take our 30 second test.
This test involves inputting the answers to these questions into an online calculator:
- Were you injured in the last three years?
- Was the accident your fault?
- Did you receive medical attention?
- Where were you injured?
Once the answers have been provided, the estimated figure which is based on other cases we have successfully processed, will be returned.
