Shoulder, Elbow and Arm Injuries Abroad

Home » » Shoulder, Elbow and Arm Injuries Abroad

Injuries to the upper limb can cause severe discomfort and have a detrimental effect on day to day life. Early physiotherapy is essential to ensure a person gets back to their pre-accident state as quickly as possible, however for some a full recovery is not always possible.

Minor shoulder injuries in where the symptoms have lasted between three months and a year can warrant an award between £2,150.00 and £3,810,00, whereas injuries lasting up to two years can be worth as much as £6,920.00.

Frozen shoulders can justify an award of between £6,920.00 and £11,200.00 and more serious dislocations could be up to £16,830.00.

A moderate or minor elbow injury where symptoms resolve within 18 – 24 months justify an award of £5,500.00 and injuries with symptoms over three years with ongoing nuisance symptoms could see you receiving an award up to £11,040.00.

An uncomplicated colles fracture of the wrist attracts an award of £6,510.00 and other minor or minimally displaced fractures with recovery within a year justifies awards between £3,090.00 and £4,160.00. Wrist injuries resulting in significant permanent disability could attract awards between £21,480. and £34,340.00.

Given the range of values, it is therefore essential you get specialist legal advice from a solicitor who can ensure you are receiving the maximum amount of compensation for your injury as well as claiming other losses in addition, such as loss of earnings and care and assistance.
