Inter Law? – Serious Arm Injury Claims, Amputated Arm / Hand Compensation Claim

Compensation for arm injuries

Severe arm injuries

£52,500 – £71,500

This compensation bracket would apply to people who just fall short of being amputated. They would still be extremely serious injuries and leave the person in a similar state as having the arm taken off, for example a case of very bad brachial plexus injury.

Injuries which result in permanent and substantial disablement

£21,500 – £33.000

This would be serious fractures of one or both arms leaving the claimant with permanent disability whether it’s functional or cosmetic. The claimant would be compensated accordingly to the severity of their injuries.

Less severe arm injuries

£10,500 – £21,500

This would be when having significant disability there would be a degree of recovery which would have taken place or is expected to take place in the future.

Simple Fractures of the forearm

£3,650 – £10,500

This amount of compensation would be rewarded to uncomplicated fractures which would make a complete recovery. The amount of compensation rewarded would be on the length of the injury. A short time of injury would receive around £3,650 in compensation. Injuries which result in residual disability would get the upper mark of the compensation stated above.
