Compensation claims for an elbow injury


A common elbow injury is the dislocation of an elbow. This is when the bones in the arm are forced out of the proper alignment of the elbow joint.

It is very painful and requires a doctor to realign the joint and manipulate the bones back into position. A sling is then required to be worn for a number of weeks and physiotherapy may be necessary. Other elbow injuries include elbow fractures, sprains, and tendonitis.

Is it important how it happened?

An elbow injury often occurs as the result of an accident. One example would be when a person slips or trips and put their arms out in front of them to break their fall. Another example could be when a cyclist has been knocked off their bike during a road-traffic accident.

If the accident was caused by someone else, the party with the elbow injury may be entitled to receive compensation from the party at fault. It is highly advisable to seek a professional legal opinion from a personal injury solicitor in order to make a successful claim for accident compensation.

Compensation for elbow injuries

Compensation awards will vary from injury to injury. A personal injury solicitor will instruct a medical expert to assess the injury and determine if there will be any long term damage.

In previous cases of minor elbow injuries, claimants have been awarded up to £5,000. Compensation for severe injuries has reached up to £25,000. The amount of compensation is decided upon the circumstances of each individual claim, and will consider the loss of earnings and medical costs.
