Can I Claim Wrist Injury Compensation?

Wrist injury compensation will likely be available to you if you have suffered an injury to your wrist at work that could have been prevented.

If your employer has failed to put the correct safety precautions in place causing you injury, our personal injury solicitors can help you with your wrist injury compensation claim.

Can I Claim Wrist Injury Compensation?

There are a number of different ways in which you can injure your wrist at work. Because your hands and arms are such important parts of your body, losing mobility in even one of your wrists can be debilitating.

Some of the most common ways in which people have been known to damage their wrists at work include:

  • Repetitive Strain Injuries

As workplaces increasingly need their employees to use computer equipment for all of their tasks, repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome are becoming more common.

  • Fall at Work

Having some form of trip, slip or fall accident at work can result in significant damage to your wrists.

If you have suffered from a wrist injury at work, we can help you get the compensation that you need to get back on track. Get in touch today.

How Will my Wrist Injury Claim be Calculated?

Reaching a settlement for your wrist injury will involve a number of considerations. These will include:

  • Whether your wrist injury will prevent or may have already prevented you from working and therefore will result in a loss of earnings
  • Any medical expenses that you have already paid, in addition to any future treatment
  • Any travel expenses that have occurred while you have been receiving medical treatment
  • Any cost of care

Because each case is unique to the client, there may be other factors that need to be considered when your wrist injury compensation is being calculated. A chat with our solicitors will be beneficial to help you understand the ways in which we can help you to earn compensation.

How Long will the Wrist Injury Compensation Claim Process Take?

Because it is always on a case-by-case basis, it is difficult to say exactly how long your own case could take. However, there are a number of things that are considered in the process of your claim being resolved.

Firstly, it must be determined who is going to be held liable for your wrist injury. If you suffered your injury at work, then this is most likely your employer. They may dispute this, which can lead to your claim process taking slightly longer.

Once liability has been established, the next step is the medical evidence of your injury being assessed. This determines the severity of your injury, and the way in which it has therefore had an impact on your day to day life.

When all of the evidence has been considered, it will be decided how much compensation you are entitled to. In some cases, you may need to be assessed by a number of different medical professionals. This is because your employer may want a second opinion on the severity of your injuries.

Sometimes, your solicitor may suggest that you wait until you have a full idea of your medical prognosis before you make a claim, because you won’t be able to get any further compensation if your wrist injury worsens.
