The elbow is located where the bones in your upper and lower arm meet. It can get easily damaged by a direct force or blow, or a more long-term problem if its a repetitive injury caused by constant actions. Some elbow injuries can be a little more than a niggling ache, but more serious ones can put your arm out of action for many weeks. It is not until you are in this situation that you realise how difficult many things are with only one arm, and how much help you need in the simple tasks that you normally do for yourself.
Apart from the inconvenience, your elbow injury could cause you a lot of pain and discomfort. If you find yourself in this situation because of an accident that was not your own fault, you may wish to speak to solicitors in Keswick about compensation.
Using solicitors in Keswick after being injured in an accident that was not your fault
A fall or forceful impact are the most common ways in which you can damage your elbow. It can in all different types of accidents, such as:
- A road traffic accident;
- A work-related accident; or
- A slip, trip or fall.
If any of these accidents cause you to have an injured elbow, or any other type of injury, providing it was not your fault and occurred in the last three years, you may be entitled to compensation, and using our solicitors in Keswick is the easiest way to achieve this.
Deciding against whom to make the claim
Whoever caused your accident will be who the claim is made against. This could be a vehicle driver in a road traffic accident, your employer if the accident happened at work, or the shop owner if you fell over on a wet sloppy floor in a shop.
Everyone, no matter what they are doing or who they are, has a responsibility to make sure they do not endanger other people. If they are negligent or reckless and this causes someone to be injured, they may have to face a personal injury compensation claim.
