Wrist Injury Compensation Claim
Have you suffered a wrist injury that wasn’t your fault? Then you may be entitled to compensation.
Wrist injuries can have lasting effects on movement and flexibility, especially as joints are constantly under pressure. Recovery times from injuries to the joints are often longer than those for injuries to any other part of the body. Sprains, Dislocations and Fractures are all common injuries that can occur after a slip or trip, when you may have been trying to break your fall by putting your arms out in front of you.
Other common wrist injuries include tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Both of these injuries can develop as a result of being involved in an accident such as a car accident or any accident that involves sudden violent movements.

Slips, trips and falls are the most common stimulation for wrist injuries. As mentioned above, this is because of your body’s automatic response of putting your arm out to protect your body during a fall.
Wrist injuries can also be caused at work; either by a slip, trip, or fall, or by repetitive straining, which is commonly known as a repetitive strain injury. Repetitive straining on the wrist quite frequently causes an injury called carpal tunnel injury. This occurs from occupations of which include manual labor, or the use of vibrating equipment such as drills, and saws.
Road traffic accidents often cause wrist injury, too, particularly motorcycle accidents. If you have been in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Examples of wrist injury compensation amounts:
Minor wrist injuries include simple fractures and wrist sprains which heal within a few months. Injuries such as these can lead you to a settlement of £2,000 – £3,000 compensation.
A fracture to the radius bone of the wrist can be compensated for up to £5,000, if the injury heals with no further symptoms of pain.
Severe wrist injuries which amount to some degree of loss of the functionality of your wrist, as well as ongoing symptoms and pain, can entitle you to up to £40,000 compensation.
