As there is a wide range of arm injuries that you can suffer from, the effects themselves are also wide-ranging. The more minor arm injuries are those which involve soft tissue damage and minor fractures which heal within weeks and months. However, these injuries can still prevent someone from working or enjoying certain hobbies temporarily while the arm heals.
More serious arm injuries can result in long-term, permanent disability and on-going pain or loss of movement. These sorts of injuries can have serious repercussions such as limiting your ability to work depending upon your job role.
How much compensation will I receive?
The amount of compensation you are entitled to receive for your arm injury will be dependent on the severity of the injury sustained following medical assessment by a medical expert.
Our compensation calculator gives you a guide to the level of personal injury compensation you may receive for your injury alone. In addition to claiming for your injury, you may also be able to claim for financial loss sustained as a result of the accident.

What Will My Arm Injury Compensation Include?
The figures are for injury only. Compensation for other loses like loss of earnings are claimed for separately.
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault then you could be able to make a compensation claim. For your claim to be successful you will need to demonstrate that your arm injury was not your fault.
If you are successful, as part of your claim, you will be able to recover financial losses, including loss of earnings if you have been unable to work either temporarily or permanently. If you have had to pay for medical expenses in relation to your arm injury then you should also be compensated for those. For example, you may have had to pay for physiotherapy sessions.
As well as financial losses your compensation will also take into consideration the level of pain and suffering you have endured in your accident. It will, of course, take into account the physical effects, and also the psychological effects of your injury.
