The wrist is a very fragile part of the body, containing many small bones and delicate tendons. This means wrist injuries are particularly common, occurring in all kinds of accidents, including slips and trips in the workplace and in road accident claims. They also range from very minor to severe, leading to significant permanent disability, and can involve bone fractures, Colles’ fractures, Smith’s fractures and soft tissue injuries. When people fall over, they naturally put their hands out in front of them to cushion their fall, and this can lead to wrist injuries.
Some people are particularly susceptible to wrist injuries, such as people with osteoporosis, but they are still just as entitled to wrist injury compensation as everyone else. People have a duty of care to ensure the safety of employees and the public, including those with bone conditions, and when they fail in this regard and people suffer damage to their wrists, they can make wrist injury claims.
The figures on this page are representative of the settlements in wrist injury claims Clearwater Solicitors have handled, but the overall value of your wrist injury claim will depend on a huge number of factors. If you were partially responsible for the accident that led to your injury or failed to mitigate damages, your compensation payment could be reduced. The size of your wrist injury claim will also depend on the other losses you faced as a result of the accident, including lost wages, travel costs and any renovations your house will require. Your long-term prognosis and risk of complications should also be considered.
As a result, you will need to speak to personal injury solicitors that specialise in wrist injury compensation claims if you want to find out how much your claim is worth and receive all the money you deserve, and the team at Clearwater Solicitors are ready to help you out.
