  • Fractures;

  • Tendinopathy and tendonitis;
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome;
  • Burns;
  • Injuries requiring surgery;

Legal advice for Wrist Injury Compensation Claims

You may not realise the extent of your wrist injury at first. It may take a while to realise that your wrist is not recovering or that your normal activities are difficult to manage.

Your priority should be to seek medical attention urgently and tell your doctor the details of your accident and symptoms of your wrist injury.

It is also important to report your accident in case you need to make a claim:

  • Report your motor vehicle accident to the police.
  • Report your workplace accident to your manager or employer.
  • Report your public place accident to a supervisor or security guard in attendance.

Once you realise that your wrist injury will need medical treatment and time off work to heal, or even possibly surgery, then be sure to call Lionheart Lawyers without delay. We offer a free initial assessment in which we will listen to your case and advise you of all the claims you may be eligible to make.

If you have already submitted a workers compensation claim or a motor vehicle injury claim for your wrist injury and it was rejected or partly rejected by the insurer, we may be able to help.

Compensation for wrist injuries may cover:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Loss of income;
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses;
  • Ongoing medical treatment;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Domestic assistance for day-to-day tasks.

If your wrist injury or impairment is permanent, or the result of negligence, then you may be entitled to make additional claims for lump sum payments. Further, you may be entitled to a TPD (total permanent disability) claim through your superannuation fund. Lionheart Lawyers are experts in identifying all your entitlements and maximising your compensation.

Making a Negligence Claim for Wrist Injuries

If your wrist injury was caused by an accident in a public place and was the result of negligence, then you may be entitled to make a public liability claim.

Public places like shopping centres, car parks, office buildings have an obligation to take reasonable steps to provide a safe environment for everyone who uses them. The occupier of a premises may be negligent if they fail in this obligation through:

  • Poorly maintained or serviced areas or fixtures, causing you injury;
  • Failing to clean up spills promptly, causing you to slip or fall;
  • Failing to close off an area under construction, causing your wrist injury;
  • Another negligent action which caused your accident.

If you are unsure whether your public place accident was the result of negligence, phone Lionheart Lawyers to speak to one of our expert solicitors for a free consultation. We will listen to you to find out how your wrist injuries occurred and advise you of whether you may have a valid claim to pursue.

Claiming for Wrist Injuries Sustained at Work

Whether your wrist injury was the result of a workplace accident or caused through your regular work duties, you may be eligible to claim workers compensation.

Workers compensation for wrist injuries provides regular payments to cover lost income and reimburses you for medical and care expenses.

You may also be entitled to an additional lump sum payment for permanent impairment if your hand or wrist injury is serious enough.

Further, if your workplace wrist injury was caused by your employer’s negligence, then you may be entitled to another lump sum payout called a work injury damages payment.

It is important to seek the assistance of an expert lawyer if you want to claim these additional lump sum payouts on top of your regular workers compensation payments. The team at Lionheart Lawyers is highly experienced in wrist injury cases and will prepare your claim with great care and skill to ensure that no benefits are missed and you receive maximum compensation tailored to your injuries and personal circumstances.
