Upper Limb Injury Claims

The term ‘upper limb injury’ refers to injuries to the shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists and hands (including fingers and thumbs). These can range from sprains and ligament damage, to broken and fractured bones, and amputations. The impact of any upper limb injury can be considerable because we require the use of our arms and hands for almost all day-to-day activities; such as personal care, household chores, working, using a computer, driving etc.

Where the injury is minor, say a soft tissue injury such as a sprained wrist or strained shoulder, then recovery could be relatively quick, perhaps lasting no more than a few weeks or months and causing little disruption.  A more serious injury, such as a broken hand, wrist or elbow, may require surgery, immobilisation in plaster, and a course of physiotherapy before a full recovery is achieved. Even without complications the recovery period could be lengthy, say several months to a year, and may require a period of absence from work.

A life changing injury, such as a limb amputation, will require specialist intervention and treatment. In addition, there may need to be adaptations to your home, your car and your place of work as a result.

No matter how serious or minor your injury, our goal is to make sure that upper limb injury claims receive the compensation they deserve. We will ensure you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, to give you the financial support you need to overcome your injuries.

If you have suffered from an upper limb injury, we will:

  • Provide you with jargon-free advice on whether you have a valid upper limb injury claim.
  • Agree to represent you on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis which means you pay nothing if you lose.
  • Arrange physiotherapy or other treatment that might help you to recover more quickly.
  • Obtain a medical report to assess the extent of your injury.
  • Recover any out of pocket expenses e.g. loss of earnings, travel expenses, medical expenses.
  • Make sure you receive your maximum entitlement to compensation. We won’t settle for less.

Alternatively you can submit a free, no obligation enquiry via the form on our website or you can email us at info@true.co.uk. We will contact you without delay to discuss your claim.

Our Process

1

Submit Your claim – we will establish who was at fault and submit a claim on your behalf.

2

Gather the Evidence and Arrange Treatment – we will collect all of the evidence needed to prove your claim, arrange a medical examination for you, and if appropriate arrange treatment to assist with your recovery.

3

Win Your Claim – we will fight hard on your behalf to recover maximum compensation in the shortest time.

How long will my claim take?

The length of time it takes to settle upper limb injury claims depends on 3 factors; whether the other party admits they were at fault, the severity of your injuries, and the amount and complexity of your losses and expenses. A straightforward upper limb injury claim can be settled within 3 months, but more serious upper limb injury claims may take longer.
