Serious Arm Injury Claims
Whether we are typing, carrying items, driving a car or simply shaking someone’s hand, our arms are one of the most important parts of the body, and play a crucial role in allowing us to carry out most of our day-to-day tasks. Serious arm injuries can be incredibly debilitating, not only in the amount of pain that they can cause a person, but also in the way that they can make even the easiest daily tasks incredibly difficult and if you have been left with an arm injury in a situation that wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t suffer in silence.
Even the smallest arm injury can have a direct impact on your life, especially if it prevents you from going to work or carrying out your daily job and if you feel that you have been the victim then Accident Advice Helpline are here to help.
What are some common serious arm injury claims?
- Arm injuries which are sustained in the workplace through lifting or faulty machinery
- Injuries sustained in a road traffic accident
- Injuries sustained in a slip, trip or fall
- Injuries caused by a harmful substance, i.e. a chemical or acid
- Burn injuries and electrical injuries caused by faulty products and appliances.
When can I make a claim?
In general, if you have been the victim of an accident that was not your fault, you could be eligible to claim. This means that if you have been left with an injury through the negligence or carelessness of another person, or if you have been the victim of negligence in the workplace or while you were on private property, you could look at making a claim. The majority of claims need to be made within three years of the initial accident, but this deadline can be extended in some circumstances.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we know how traumatising and stressful making a claim can be, that’s why our team of fully qualified professionals are here to help you throughout the process. We will discuss a range of options with you and in the majority of cases, your claim can be processed over the phone.
