Hand injury (Up to £153,200)

You could be awarded up to £153,200 as compensation for suffering a hand injury in an accident.

Hand injuries can be suffered in all types of accidents. The amount of compensation you can claim for will depend on the seriousness of your injury; the length of time it takes to recover; the permanent disabilities and cosmetic disfigurement caused. This bracket covers all types of hand injuries ranging from thumb dislocations to hand fractures and even serious injuries such as hand amputations.

Wrist injury (Up to £45,500)

You could be awarded up to £45,500 as compensation for suffering a wrist injury in an accident.

Wrist injuries are most commonly suffered when people use their hands to break their falls. The pressure on the wrists on impact can cause sprains, dislocations and fractures to the wrist and nearby surrounding bones. Another common wrist injury is repetitive strain injury, which is caused by the overuse of the wrist at work.

Elbow injury (Up to £41,600)

You could be awarded up to £41,600 as compensation for suffering an elbow injury in an accident.

Elbow injuries that you can claim for include elbow fractures, dislocated elbows, tennis elbow, lacerations and more. The amount of compensation you can be awarded for your elbow injury will depend on whether full recovery can be made; how quickly it takes to recover; whether major surgery is required; and if significant disability arises from the injury.

Broken arm (£5,000 ~ £50,000)

You could be awarded between £5,000 and £50,000 as compensation for suffering a broken arm injury at work.

A broken arm is suffered when one or more of the bones in your arm have been fractured. The two obvious signs of a broken arm are fractured bones coming out of you and your arm being an odd shape. Other less apparent symptoms of a broken arm include severe pain, severe bruising, severe swelling and difficulty moving the hand or arm. A broken arm is a common injury with accidents at work and slip, trip and fall accidents.

Brachial plexus injury (£10,600 ~ £99,500)

You could be awarded between £10,600 and £99,500 as compensation for suffering a brachial plexus injury from an arm accident.

A brachial plexus injury can be caused by a neck or shoulder injury. We have included this as the injury mainly affects the arms. The brachial plexus are a set of nerves from the arms that connect to the spinal chord. Damage to the brachial plexus can cause arm-related symptoms such as difficulty controlling your arm muscles, loss of sensation in the hands, and even paralysed arms. Your compensation for this injury will depend on the severity of damage to your brachial plexus nerves.

Arm amputation (£73,000 ~ £250,000)

You could be awarded between £73,000 and £250,000 as compensation for suffering amputated arms in an accident.

An arm amputation is the surgical removal of your arm from the body. This surgery is usually considered when you have suffered a severe infection or serious trauma to your limb. The amount of compensation you can be awarded for arm amputations will depend on whether it is a below-the-elbow amputation, an above-the-elbow amputation, an arm amputation at the shoulder and lastly, how many arms are affected. The bracket for this injury includes the estimates for one arm and both arm amputations.

Paralysed arms (£166,500 ~ £307,000)

You could be awarded between £166,500 and £307,000 as compensation for suffering paralysed arms in an accident.

Although this is not an arm injury, we have included this because it can affect the arms. Paralysis of the arms is most often caused by damage to the brain or spinal cord. When paralysis affects both your arms and legs, it is known as tetraplegia or quadriplegia. This impairment is common with victims of road traffic accidents and medical negligence, especially during surgery affecting the spine, neck or brain.
