About Upper Arm Injuries

Injuries to the upper arm vary in severity and type, which means it can be difficult to tell how much compensation you could claim for your specific injury.

However, our compensation calculator provides you with average payout amounts for different levels of injury, so that you can better understand how much your claim could be worth - something we know is important to people considering making a personal injury claim.

As the figures provided are intended to be estimates only, the best way to find out exactly how much your claim could be worth is by speaking to a solicitor about your case. If you’d like to talk to our experts, call us on 0800 054 6750 or fill in our online enquiry form.

Types of Injury

The upper arm is made up of a single long bone called the humerus, as well as a number of muscles - namely the biceps and triceps - ligaments and tendons.

Damage to this area of the body can be particularly debilitating and disabling, often leaving the sufferer unable to move the arm without experiencing extreme pain. Injuries are often caused by slips, trips, or falls, accidents at work, road traffic accidents and repetitive movement.

We have helped individuals claim for a range of injuries to the upper arm, including:

  • Fractures of the humerus
  • Torn muscles, ligaments and tendons
  • Amputations

How Compensation Could Help You

The amount of compensation awarded for an upper arm injury will depend on the degree of the disability it causes, as well as how successful recovery is predicted to be.

However, compensation can be extremely useful for victims of injury because it gives them a chance to get back to how they were before their accident.

Serious injuries can place a huge financial burden on the victim; leading to loss of earnings, expensive rehabilitation and increased travel costs. Compensation can help to reduce that burden for you and your loved ones, as it is designed to put the injured party back in the position they were in, but for the accident.
