Compensation claim for a serious wrist injury

It is important to seek the right legal advice and representation for a compensation claim for a serious wrist injury. It may be that such an injury has a significant impact on your life which means that you will need to make sure that you can recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to receive in accordance with the law.

We are specialist Injury Lawyers which means that we have a significant amount of experience in helping people claim compensation for serious injury cases. We have resolved claims in the millions of pounds region for serious and catastrophic injury claims, and it is vital to have this kind of experience on your side for a serious wrist injury compensation case to make sure that you receive the justice that you deserve.

What could your claim be worth?

A claim for a serious wrist injury will need to be properly valued by us obtaining a formal medico-legal report from an independent consultant. We can then use this report together with your testimony and our extensive experience to be able to value your claim for compensation.

We will also use official guidelines that help solicitors like us to be able to value a claim. We will try as best as we can to use the medico-legal report and our experience to fit you into categories based on extent of any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused.

We can take a quick look at the official guidelines – known as the JC guidelines – to give you a very rough idea as to what you could be entitled to claim for.

For minor and undisplaced fractures or soft tissue injuries with a recovery of up to 12 months, you could be entitled to receive up to £6,500. If recovery of a fracture or a soft tissue injury takes longer but does eventually complete, the claim could be valued in the region of up to £9,000.

In a more severe case where there is still some permanent disability, such as persisting pain and stiffness, a claim could be valued up to £21,500. If there is significant permanent disability, or where movement remains a bigger problem, a claim could be valued up to around £34,000.

For injuries resulting the complete loss of function and significant, permanent disability, a claim could be valued in the region of up to £50,000.

It is important to remember that the above guidelines are rough estimates just for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused, known as General Damages. This does not account for your losses and expenses claim, known as Special Damages, which could far exceed the General Damages claim where a permanent wrist injury causes significant problems for you. For example, if you were an electrician who can no longer work in this field as a result of a permanent injury, you could be entitled to claim lost earnings for the rest of your life. This could amount to a significant sum.
