What sort of injuries can you sustain to the arm in personal injury cases? 

As you would expect, personal injury cases bring about all kinds of different injuries. Arm injuries can vary from mild muscular injuries, to more serious ligament injuries, broken bones, burns and lacerations. 
 
Soft tissue injuries, also known as ‘pulled muscles’, ‘sprains’ or ‘strains’ can occur in any type of incident, whether in a Road Traffic Accident because you have been jolted or thrown around by an impact, a slip or trip where the fall itself, or attempting to stop the fall, can cause damage or from injuries in the workplace such as repetitive strain injury or injuries caused by improper working arrangements such as badly designed workstations or seating. 
 
Broken bones- these can, in some cases, be caused by Road Traffic Accidents, although it is more often cyclists, motorcyclist or pedestrians, that suffer broken bones as a result of a road traffic accident. Breaks to the arms and wrists are common in slipping and tripping incidents, often medically described as FOOSH (fall onto out-stretched hand) with the Colles fracture being a regular injury.  
 
Burn injuries- most often occur in accidents at work, whether from a lack of safety equipment such as PPE (personal protective equipment), lack of proper handling equipment, malfunctioning machinery, unsafe systems of work or lack of proper cleaning procedures. Public liability cases can also result in burn injuries, especially in the beauty salon field where a lack of patch testing, proper medical questioning prior to commencing a treatment or Incorrect application of certain products, such as bleaches, dyes or abrasives can cause long term damage. 
 
Lacerations and cuts- these injuries occur in many different ways, whether from striking the interior of the vehicle during a Road Traffic Accident, to not being given protective gloves in a workplace or buying a defective product which has a sharp edge or which breaks or shatters, causing injury. 
 
As always, MG Legal’s experienced personal injury solicitors know that every case if different and this is why we treat our clients as individuals, not as just another file reference. We will listen to your case, your instruction to us and look to tailor our advice and our actions to your particular arm injury compensation claim. 

Have you been injured in the last three years? 

How is an award for personal injury calculated? 

Many personal injury solicitors like to throw personal injury figures around, without often explaining what they mean, or how they are awarded. At MG Legal, our personal injury solicitors are different; we like to be clear from the start, and give you clear, honest answers about how much compensation you will receive, if you have been injured. Subject to this, we believe it is important to differentiate between the award for your personal injury itself and the other, associated losses that you can be awarded, and with this in mind, MG Legal's personal injury experts have prepared a guide, below, explaining the different types of losses you can claim for. 
 
Your award for your personal injury is also known as an award for “pain, suffering and loss of amenity”, routinely called General Damages. This is an award for the injury itself, the pain it causes and the effects on your life. The highest awards for General Damages tend to reach levels of around £400,000.00. 
 
Where overall awards reach into the millions of pounds is the other aspect of damages, known as Special Damages. Special damages is the term for all financial losses claimed in any given case. So, usually, these will include medical expenses, loss earnings and in more serious injuries, future care costs, adaptation costs and even expenses such as moving home (usually to a property without stairs or with room for specialised equipment) can come in. Particularly if the injured party is young, then any compensation monies they receive may well include the fact that instead of earning, say, £20,000.00 per year for the next 40 years, they will now need daily care for the remainder of their life. So, not only will there be a lost earnings claim for 40x£20,000.00 (£800,000.00) but there will also be a claim for the cost of care at, say, £20,000.00 per year for the remainder of their life, which if 50 years is used would constitute a cost of £1,000,000.00.  
 
So, when reading the below section, please bear in mind that the figures quoted for these injuries are purely the award for the injury and that each case being different, the total losses will be different too. 

How much money can I receive for injuries to the arms? 

At MG Legal our first port of call is the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines (JSB), a regularly updated reference book containing guides for awards in certain brackets based on the type and scale of the injuries as detailed by the medical experts in your claim.  
 
Awards for arm injuries can vary greatly depending on the severity of the injuries, their effect and a host of other factors, however, the JSB details these as follows: 
 
Injury to the arm: 
Potential payout: 
Loss of both arms. 
£225,960 to £281,520 
Loss of one arm- amputated at the shoulder. 
No less than £128,710 
Loss of one arm- apmutated above the elbow. 
£102,890 to £122,860 
Loss of one arm- amputated below the elbow. 
£90,250 to £102,890 
Severe arm injuries- injuries which fall short of amputation but still leave the injured person little better off than if the arm had been amputated. 
£90,250 to £122,860 
Injuries resulting in permanent and substantial disablement- such as serious fractures of one or both forearms, whether functional or cosmetic, and where there is a significan residual disability. 
£36,770 to £56,180 
Less severe injuries- where there are significant disabilities involved but a substantial degree of recovery has taken place or is expected to do so. 
£18,020 to £36,770 
Simple fractures to the forearm. 
£6,190 to £18,020

How long have I got to make an arm injury compensation claim? 

Usually, if you have been injured as a result of someone else's negligent acts or omissions, you have three years from the date of the accident, or the date you know about the injury, to pursue a claim for personal injury. In most cases, this will be immediately should it occur in an accident, or if the injury stems from industrial illness, if everything appears okay to start with and then you later find out about an issue, your three years starts from the day you find out this information. 
 
Under the 1980 Limitation Act, there are exceptions- those under the age of 18 at the time the injury occured, have three years from their 18th birthday within which to make a personal injury claim. Time limits may differ if you are acting on behalf of someone with limited mental capacity, if you are acting as guardian or subject a lasting power of attorney. If you have any questions or queries, then please do not hesitate to contact one of MG Legal’s personal injury experts, here…
