Arm Injury Compensation
Injuries to your arms can take many forms. You might have suffered nerve or bone damage, and you may no longer be able to drive, write or work. You could have been injured at work, or in a public place (such as a fall on uneven paving stones). You may have been involved in a traffic accident, or been injured in the course of a crime or violent attack. You may even have suffered an amputation and lost part of an arm, hand or finger. Such accidents can affect your ability to continue working and can lead to loss of earnings as well as the psychological trauma caused by limb loss or severe damage. Whatever your situation and however severe your injuries, you can discuss with one of our local Sheffield solicitors** what sort of compensation you may be entitled to.
Arm Injury Claim Solicitors
If your injury has had direct financial implications, such as loss of income or medical costs, then you can claim specific damages to cover these immediate needs. You may also be able to claim general damages which will be an amount assessed by the court corresponding to the pain and suffering you have experienced.
Compensation called general damages can take into account any future loss of earnings which your injury may have entailed. If you are a crafts-person or artist who works with your hands, or if you need to drive or operate machinery in your job, this will be taken into account when the Sheffield civil court decides on the amount of compensation you will receive. Your solicitor** will be able to advise you further.
If you have an arm injury and it is someone else’s fault, then you can take legal advice to find out whether or not you might be entitled to claim compensation against the person responsible. If you take the details of your injury to one of our specialist personal injury lawyers in our Sheffield offices, they will be able to advise you on the next steps to take. Make sure you keep detailed written records of the incident, and of any bills, receipts or correspondence connected with your injury.
