We use our arms and hands to perform most everyday tasks, from brushing our teeth to driving a car, and virtually every job requires us to use our arms and hands. Because of this, when these parts of our bodies are injured, the results can be devastating to our lives and our ability to earn a living.
If you have suffered an injury to any part of your arm, contact Flaxman Law Group for a free consultation with a Plantation arm and wrist injury claims attorney. A consultation can help you determine whether you may have a claim.
What Kinds of Arm and Wrist Injuries Are Common in Plantation?
Injuries to the arm, hands, and wrist can occur due to:
- Job injuries
- Car crashes
- Sport injuries
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Boating accidents
- Truck accidents
Common injuries to this part of the body include fractures, nerve damage, paralysis, and amputations. These type of injuries are often caused by direct impact, such as a fall or traffic collision.
However, overuse injuries can also affect the wrist, arm, and hand. These often happen at work, where long-term repetitive movements are used. Workplace injuries can lead to stiff joints or carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by a pinched nerve, which is often caused by stress or repetitive motion. This progressive condition can lead to debilitating pain and reduced range of motion. There is currently no cure, so patients often suffer long-term from the effects of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Seeking Compensation for Plantation Arm and Wrist Injuries
If you have been injured in a boating, motorcycle, or car collision, your vehicle insurance should cover the costs associated with your injury. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Some insurers dispute your claim or may offer you less than you feel you deserve.
Similarly, if you have sustained carpal tunnel syndrome or another condition affecting your arms and wrists due to your work, your workers’ compensation may be rejected. Your employer and their insurer may allege your injuries were not caused by work.
For these reasons, many people who have been injured turn to an attorney. A Plantation arm and wrist injury claims lawyer can determine any liable parties and can negotiate with insurers on your behalf. They may be able to seek compensation for your injuries, including for your lost wages and medical bills.
After an injury to your arm or hand, you may need ongoing medical treatment, pain medication, and rehabilitation. You may lose out on wages if you cannot return to work. Seeking compensation means all these costs do not come out of your pocket.
