The wrist is a vulnerable joint. It is made up of eight carpal bones that connect to the radius and the ulna, the bones that make up the forearm. There is a system of muscles ligaments tendons and nerves that hold everything together. It is patently a very important area of the body and injury to the wrist can be very disabling.
If you have suffered an injury to your wrist, then you may be entitled to claim compensation if you can show that the injury was caused by another’s negligence.
The more severe injuries where there is a complete loss of function in the wrist can lead to awards up to £38250.
For the less severe straightforward fracture there could be compensation in the region of £4750.
Where there is a recovery within a few months this figure will be around £3000 but can be up to £6500 where there is a complete recovery but the recovery period is more extensive.
All of the above are estimates and any award of compensation will depend on the individual circumstances.
If you have suffered injury to your wrist in an accident that you believe has been caused by someone else, then you should seek the services of a specialist solicitor
