Wrist Injury Claims

Fractures and soft tissue injuries in work to the wrist can occur as a result of the following:

  • Manual handling / lifting tasks
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Falls from height
  • Injuries from falling objects
  • Injuries when using machinery

According to Health and Safety Executive statistics, the top two categories (manual handling and slips, trips and falls) account for over 50% of non-fatal work injuries. The muscles, tendons and bones of the wrist are vulnerable in these types of accident, and Work Claims Bureau are well-versed in dealing with claims arising from them.

If you’ve suffered a wrist injury, you may face uncertainty about earnings, have difficulty in undertaking household tasks and need help in doing so. You might also have to make alternative travel arrangements if you’re unable to drive for a period and social or sports activities might be curtailed.

Should your employer have failed in its Health & Safety responsibilities under UK legislation and you’ve been injured as a result then you could be entitled to seek damages for your injuries and losses.

Our expert team can utilise all their expertise and experience to help you pursue a personal injury claim. We would do so under a No Win, No Fee agreement, so if your claim is not successful you do not pay us a penny.*
