South Gloucestershire Accident at Work Claim

Arm injuries can have life changing affects on their victims. You could sustain an arm injury quite easily in an accident at work. The types of things that you could do to injure your arm are endless. One of the worst types of injuries you could sustain to your arm while you are at work is fracturing a bone in your arm. A fracture happens when a physical force stronger than the arm is exerted onto the bone.

A fracture can be very painful and leave your arm immobile for many weeks. Most fractures can be realigned and set into a cast to heal. If you suffer from an open fracture, this means that the bone has penetrated the skin and is visible, and then you will also need antibiotics to prevent infection. You could also sprain your arm meaning you have torn or stretched the arms ligaments.

Your ligaments are the tissue that connects a bone to the joint. Again this will be very painful and you will experience swelling. The treatment for a sprain is rest, pain relief and wearing a bandage to support the area. Another way you could injury your arm is a Dislocation which will usually be in your elbow.

A dislocation occurs when the bones are forced out of position; a dislocation will be very swollen, often look obviously out of shape and be extremely painful. The treatment for a dislocation varies depending on the severity of the dislocation. You may need to have the bone repositioned, pain relief and sometimes a splint or sling.

If you are suffering from an arm injury or any other injury sustained in an accident at work that was not your fault then you could be able to make a South Gloucestershire accident at work claim.

An arm injury could have caused you many extra expenses such as personal care, household help and loss of earnings if you have been unable to work. By making a South Gloucestershire accident at work claim you could get reimbursement for all these costs.
