    Damaged wrist

    You may have a damaged wrist after an accident in which you were involved that was not your fault. As long as the accident occurred within the last three years, you might have grounds to make a personal injury compensation claim.


    If you trip, your natural reaction is to put your hands out to break your fall. This can result in a damaged wrist. You can tear or stretch the ligaments in your wrist when it bends backwards with the force of your fall.

    You may have been the recipient of an illegal tackle on a sports field, or you may have got a damaged wrist in the gym, perhaps because you were not trained appropriately in using equipment. You may have fallen at work or in a public place, and it is possible to make a personal injury compensation claim if you have a damaged wrist after an accident that was caused by the negligence of another party.

    Your wrist may have been broken or sprained in an accident or you may have developed tendonitis, which is a sports injury most common in those who play racquet sports. De Quervain’s syndrome (irritation of the tendons in the wrist) is another problem which can result in a damaged wrist if you are a tennis or badminton player, for example. However, you could develop this from working too. You can, to some extent, minimise injuries if you warm up before doing strenuous exercises, and before a game or match.

    You might, of course, break your wrist in a car accident, or in virtually any other accident. As long as it can be proven that the accident was caused by another person’s negligence, you could have grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim.
