Frequently Asked Questions
Effects of Arm Injuries udar11685
The impact of an arm injury will depend on its severity, but even milder arm injuries can require a significant period of rest, treatment and rehabilitation that makes it difficult for the sufferer to maintain their normal routine.
The most severe injuries, such as amputations, can be completely life-changing, emotionally distressing and disabling in nearly every part of the victim’s personal and professional life.
Types of Arm Injury udar11685
Arm injuries differ in severity and type, with one or more of the following parts of the arm affected:
The most common injuries, particularly fractures, muscle damage or tendon damage tend to affect the forearm. However, the upper arm is also vulnerable to these injuries, and should this be the affected area of injury, may have an impact on the entire arm.
Fractures commonly occur in slips, trips and falls when the sufferer puts out their hand and/or arm to protect themselves. Many straightforward fractures heal fully when given a period of rest and support, such as wearing a cast or sling. Unfortunately, however, not all fractures are simple and displacement can occur, causing the bones to move apart. In these cases, injuries may take much longer than expected to heal.
However, there are many other potential causes of an arm injury and we have acted for claimants who have suffered as a result of an accident at work, a road traffic accident or a sporting injury, among many others.
