Will I have to pay to claim for my elbow injury?
We are proud to offer No Win No Fee compensation claims to 98% of our customers. So you won't have to pay any money up front. In fact, we only get a fee when we win compensation for you. This is a safe and easy way of doing things, as it guarantees that you will never be out of pocket due to legal fees.
Will I have to have a medical for my elbow injury claim?
Elbows are delicate and complex things, so even what seems like a minor injury could have serious long-term effects. That's why we will almost certainly send you to see a local medical expert. They will have the expertise to work out exactly how bad your elbow injury is and how long it is likely to take you to recover from. This enables us to claim the right amount of compensation on your behalf.
Will I have to go to court for an elbow injury claim?
In most cases, elbow injury compensation claims are settled directly between your Claims Direct lawyers and the 'at fault' party's insurance company. Especially where someone else is clearly at fault, there's seldom any need to go to court. In fact, you don't even have to come to a lawyer's office to make your claim if you don't want to; as we often help people simply by telephone and by post.
What sort of elbow injuries can I claim for?
Elbows can often be damaged by slips, trips and falls. That's because it's a natural instinct to put your arms out to break your fall; and when that happens, your elbows can often be the first thing to hit the ground. But while slips and trips cause a lot of elbow fracture injuries, we often make compensation claims for other elbow injuries:
- Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI): This can affect everyone from factory workers to clerical staff, where repeating the same movements over and over again damage the ligaments in the elbow, often leading to permanent problems
- Fractures: Often caused by slips, trips and falls: particularly slips, where you have fallen backwards rather than forwards
- Tennis Elbow: This isn't just a problem for tennis players; it affects many people who make strong, repetitive elbow movements, including painters, plasterers and assembly line workers
- Bursitis: Sometimes, a knock to the elbow causes a Bursa to form, which is a bag of fluid designed to protect the joint. This can cause a lot of pain and discomfort, and may require an operation to drain the fluid away
Elbows are vulnerable to all sorts of damage though. So however your elbow has been injured - as long as it was in the last three years and wasn't your fault - talk to one of our friendly advisors today about claiming the compensation you deserve.
What can I claim for?
When you have received an elbow injury that wasn't your fault, you might be eligible to claim compensation for a number of things, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of earnings
- Hospital visits
- Medical expenses
Some elbow injuries can take a long time to heal completely. And in the case of RSI, you can be left with a permanent problem, from restricted movement to constant pain. That's why it's essential to claim the compensation you are entitled to. To find out more, talk to one of our friendly advisors now on 0800 175 7900.
