Get in touch

Arm and elbow injuries cause pain and suffering and can span from short term impacts such as a broken elbow injury or sprain, through to more serious and potentially life changing injuries.

Even if you make a full recovery, from a broken arm, for example, there will be a period of time where you will need to adapt to carrying out tasks differently, or not being able to complete some task to the ability you were able to previously.

If you have a severe arm or elbow injury leading to permanent disability, then the changes you need to make to your everyday routine will be much more far-reaching.

Depending on the severity of the injury and subsequent impacts it can have on your day to day life, you may be entitled to claim compensation and you should raise an arm and elbow injury compensation claim if you have been injured due to negligence.

Compensation can go some way to making up for the pain and suffering you have experienced. Making an arm or elbow injury compensation claim can also help you access medical care to aid your recovery and make any changes that are needed. It can also cover medical expenses incurred.

Our specialist personal arm and elbow injury solicitors at Jones Whyte have handled numerous compensation claims, winning vital compensation for our clients.
