How much can I claim for a broken wrist


If you have broken your wrist, it will be painful, bruised and swollen. The first thing you must do is go to your local Accident and Emergency Department. There your wrist will be Xrayed and placed into a cast. Perhaps you may require pain relief and antibiotics. Depending on the particular features of your fracture, you may require regular reviews in a fracture clinic.

Sometimes a broken wrist will need surgery

Whether or not you will need surgery depends on many factors including: your age, the location of the fracture, displacement of the broken bones and whether previous attempts at realignments were successful. In addition if you have a condition like osteoporosis which affects the condition of your bones, this may well have an influence on the extent of the fracture and how best to treat it.

Following removal of the cast you may require support from a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist, to help you regain as much function as possible and to strengthen your wrist.

Recovery from a broken wrist can take weeks or months, depending on the severity of the fracture and whether or not you develop complications such as infection or incomplete fracture healing. This time to recover means that you will not be able to function as you usually do. The impact to your daily life could be significant. For example you may have difficulty washing and dressing, cooking and cleaning, driving and working. All these difficulties may contribute to additional pain and suffering as well as impact severely on your finances.

We at Accident Advice Helpline believe that you should be compensated for all these problems caused by your broken wrist. We have a proven track record helping people like you who are victims of accidents, claim the compensation they need and the compensation they deserve.
