Upper body injuries is a term that is used to describe damage to any part of the upper body (i.e. above the waist), like the head, shoulders, hands and back.
Your upper body injury claim may stem from a car accident, an accident in the workplace or as a result of medical negligence. Whatever the reason for your injuries, if someone else was to blame, you could make a personal injury claim.
There are many types of upper body injuries, including:
Upper body injuries can mean that you have experienced severe pain and suffering as well as disablement, either temporarily or permanently. If your injuries have meant that you have been forced to have time off work, you may be able to claim back your loss of earnings.
The level of pain and suffering your upper body injury has caused you will also be considered in your claim. An injury such as a head injury, spinal injuries, paralysis or amputation can mean that you need 24-hour care and extra medical assistance; if you have had to pay for this out of your own pocket then you may be able to claim this back.
If you have had an upper-body injury caused by a third party then you may have a valid compensation claim. In order to be successful, all personal injury claims need to demonstrate that another party was at fault. There are also strict time limit deadlines in place in terms of making your claim so it is advisable to speak to a qualified personal injury lawyer as soon as you can.
