    Our injury lawyer in Lincoln won’t give you the elbow

    Lincoln is a cathedral city and county town of Lincolnshire. The non-metropolitan district of Lincoln in 2011 had a population of 93,541. The 2011 census gave the entire urban area of Lincoln a population of 119,200. That’s a lot of elbows that could be injured in accidents, and a lot of blameless victims who may want to use an injury lawyer in Lincoln.

    Explain elbow injuries and how an injury lawyer in Lincoln might be useful

    The bones of your upper arm meet with the bones of the lower arm to form the elbow. If any of these three bones are injured, the injury can affect your elbow and you may need to use an injury lawyer in Lincoln. Some of the types and causes of the injuries are:

    • Tennis elbow, which is caused by a series of small injuries rather than a one-off accident. Constantly using a screwdriver, excessive wringing of clothes or any or repetitive manual work could create the problem. These regular movements make the tendons from your forearm attach themselves to the bone around the elbow. It is quite often a work-related injury.
    • Squashed or trapped nerve. This quite often occurs because of the wear and tear that comes with age, but can also happen because of an accidental injury.
    • Student’s elbow. The small sac of fluid behind the elbow becomes inflamed after mild but repeated actions. This quite often happens in people who lean on their elbows a lot.  It is called student’s elbow because of the amount of sitting at a desk students do, often leaning on their elbows.
    • A sprained or fractured elbow is usually the direct result of an accident of some sort.

    The law says you should be compensated

    UK law says that if you have been injured through the fault or negligence of someone else, they should compensate you for the suffering they have caused, and if they cause you a painful elbow injury, that’s exactly what should happen.
