Consequences of Arm and Hand Injuries

An accident resulting in an injury to a person’s arm or hand may leave that individual in need of emergency care and potentially long-term medical attention, depending on the seriousness of the injury. In cases where this trauma brings about even a temporary loss of flexibility or use of a person’s arm, hand, or fingers, victims can suffer a frustrating loss of wages as well. Without arm strength or manual dexterity, an injured individual may find it much harder to continue with his or her day-to-day activities, especially depending on the person’s career.

At Law Offices of Paul Levin, we believe in providing accident victims in Connecticut with the fair opportunity to fight for justice. Our attorneys work closely with our clients to provide the legal knowledge, skills, and resources they need to secure financial compensation for their damages.

Professional and Personal Losses from Arm and Hand Trauma

A traumatic injury to the arm, hand, or fingers can have wide-ranging repercussions on a person’s life, including on his or her ability to complete everyday tasks at work. The following issues may arise because of a severe arm or hand injury:

  • Loss of arm strength
  • Loss of manual flexibility
  • Loss of dexterity in the fingers
  • Overall loss of productivity due to pain or numbness

Additionally, if the injury is permanent, a person could suffer substantial financial losses due to disability. However, those injured because of another person’s negligence may be entitled to sue for compensation for their damages.
