Arm Injury Claims for Compensation in Bolton
The arm is the area from the shoulder down to the wrist and is split into two parts: the upper arm and the lower arm. It can be injured in a number of ways from soft tissue and muscle damage to broken or fractured bones. If you have suffered an arm injury that was not your fault (or only partially your fault) then you can make a compensation claim against the party that was responsible for your arm injury.
Compensation For Arm Injuries
The amount of compensation you can claim for an arm injury will depend on the seriousness of the injury and the impact it has had on your life. The former in particular will be determined by medical examination which will also give an indication of the recovery time.
A claim should be made with the assistance of a personal injury solicitor who will help to establish liability. Then through using the result of the medical report will determine the amount of compensation that should be paid out by comparing the circumstances and the injury to previously decided cases and government guidelines.
