How you could develop an arm injury in an accident
We take for granted the use of our arms and legs until we have been injured and cannot get around in the way we would normally. There are many reasons as to how you could develop an arm injury and among them is being the victim of an accident that someone else caused.
As specialists in personal injury compensation claims, Accident Advice Helpline has been helping to secure the right amounts of compensation for those injured in accidents that were caused by the negligence of others. Every year, thousands of people just like you are injured in a whole host of accidents and are left without the use of an arm or leg through no fault of their own.
You have suffered a break, fracture or strain
There are numerous reasons as to how you could develop an arm injury because of an accident. While there are too many to list here, the list below is a snapshot of the most common arm injuries that befall the victims of unforeseen accidents:
- Broken elbow
- Sprained wrist
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Dislocated shoulder
The above can all be caused by an accident in the workplace or being asked to perform the same task without the necessary attention to health and safety. If you have been injured in an accident in the workplace then your employer has a duty of care to ensure you receive the right medical treatment as quickly as possible.
If you have suffered a repetitive strain injury (RSI) because of a work task, you could entitled to make a claim for compensation if your employer failed to allow for the correct rest breaks etc.
It is often the case that such injuries in the work place are the result of a failure in health and safety procedures or simply a lack of practical advice and equipment being made available. As mentioned above, this is the responsibility of your employer who should make sure every possible effort is made to ensure your well-being.
