Before exploring your legal right to financial compensation for a broken or fractured arm or wrist, it is vital to understand the definition of a fracture. A fracture is simply a type of broken bone. A break in your arm bone can be a total separation or a tiny crack. There are different types of fractures, such as lengthwise (up the arm) and crosswise (across the arm). Bone breaks can be transverse, spiral, oblique, comminuted and greenstick.
A fracture in your arm usually happens when there is a sudden impact or force to your upper limb region. A compound fracture is the most severe physical injury and occurs when the broken bone penetrates your skin, although it is not always visible externally. Compound breaks feature constant pain and long-term consequences for your upper body mobility.
Whether you have a fractured arm, damaged wrist or broken elbow, you should follow a series of steps to support your compensation claim. What you do following your accident will impact the outcome of your case. After you have sort medical attention, here are the recommended actions your should take:
You could seek workers’ compensation when you have a fractured humerus, fractured sternum, or bone break from a workplace injury. Under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011, all Queensland employers must provide a safe working environment. Your boss has a legal duty to take reasonable and practical measures to ensure a safe workplace.
When you suffer a work-related injury, either:
1) on the job
2) on your way to or from work
3) as a result of work-related travel
4) at a work event or function
you could be eligible to access insurance benefits from WorkCover. The QLD workers’ compensation scheme is a no-fault scheme, so you do not need to prove who was responsible.
If your arm injury leaves you with a permanent impairment, you may also be eligible to make a Whole Person Impairment Claim. You would receive a lump sum payment when you have a successful WPI claim.
If this is your situation, please get in touch with our experienced workplace injury compensation team for fast and effective help. It costs nothing to start your case.
Personal injury claims for broken arm injuries can result from accidents in public spaces. To be successful, someone needs to have failed their duty of care, and you were harmed as a result. For example, your local council may have been negligent when you break your arm because of an accident on a footpath.
Likewise, when you have a neck injury, shoulder or arm fracture in a shopping centre or car park accident or a slip and fall accident on public or privately owned property, you could have a successful claim when you prove liability for your physical harm.
Our arm injury legal experts will work with you to create compelling evidence and prove the negligent party’s liability. Knowing our compensation team will evaluate your case at no charge is comforting. Call Now – 1800 700 125.
Bone fractures suffered in a traffic accident can be severe and life-threatening. The force of vehicles colliding, or hitting a static object, can be substantial, and the impact of a sudden stop, or collision with an immovable obstacle, can cause injury to passengers. The severity of car accident fractures relies on several factors, including:
Road accident statistics show that women are most likely to break their humerus in an auto accident, while men typically fracture their femur. Regardless of what part of your body is damaged, you could claim accident compensation under various circumstances. When successful, the CTP insurer of the at-fault party will fund your payout. This fact is reassuring if a friend or family member is at fault. Contact our lawyers and solicitors now to start your fractured bone claim.
Sometimes arm fractures are so severe they can leave you with a partial or permanent disability. When a bone break causes lasting damage, you could be assessed as having a Total and Permanent Disability (TPD). While this sounds quite serious, it simply means your injury prevents you from working in your usual occupation or one for which you have been trained. For example, if you are a tradie and can no longer work onsite, you could be diagnosed as TPD, receive a lump sum payout, and then retrain to work in an office or other occupation.
Most Australians have TPD insurance benefits contained within their superannuation policy. TPD payouts can be substantial and give you the finances you need to transition to a new life. Find out now if you have a compensable disability. Our personal injury solicitors will help you know if you qualify to make a disability claim. It’s free to be sure.

Several factors determine how long it takes to achieve an arm injury settlement. These include the following:
Every insurance policy has different terms and conditions, and every insurer has unique claim processes and procedures. However, they are united in their desire to minimise the money they payout in compensation claims. For this reason, when you are litigating an insurance company, you want to be sure you have a skilled and experienced lawyer negotiating on your behalf. You typically only have one chance to make a successful claim, so be certain it is your best shot.
Most personal injury claims in Queensland are subject to strict time constraints. If you believe you have a case, you should seek expert legal advice immediately. Your actions after you have been injured will impact the value of your legal outcome. It costs nothing to know your rights, so take action now.
When you have an accident and experience severe pain, you must seek medical attention and have an x-ray. Only a qualified doctor can diagnose a fracture. Understanding the nature of your injury is essential for your recovery.
