Elbow injury compensation claims
This article looks at what you should know about making an elbow injury compensation claim.
If you have suffered an elbow injury in the last three years (longer if children were involved) and someone else was to blame, then we can help you make a compensation claim.

I have a strong claim - why won't a solicitor take it on?
An elbow injury compensation award will take into account the individual details of your case, such as:
- Costs of medical treatment
- Personal pain and suffering
- Loss of amenity - where the injury has resulted in you being unable to enjoy a hobby, or other aspect of your personal life
- Loss of earnings - due to time off work recovering from your injury, and any loss of future earnings
- Additional expenses - costs incurred as a direct result of the injury, such as taxis to hospital
The exact amount of the compensation settlement will depend on the nature and severity of your elbow injury. For more information see our 2015 Claims Calculator
To make a successful compensation claim, it will be necessary to prove that:
- The injury was caused by a third party's lack of due care
- The injury was caused by the accident that resulted from the other party's negligence
Your lawyer will arrange for an independent medical report of your elbow injury. This medical report is vital. It will provide evidence of the nature and severity of your injury, and expert medical opinion on likely future effects of the injury.
Evidence will also need to be gathered which proves the third party's liability for the cause of your elbow injury. Your lawyer will assist you in gathering the necessary police reports, CCTV footage, or workplace evidence, to support your claim.
Typically a no win no fee contract (also referred to as a Conditional Fee Agreement) is put in place between a claimant and an injury solicitor.
A CFA is basically the terms and conditions under which the solicitor represents the claimant.
It sets out what the lawyers will do and how the solicitor will be rewarded if the legal case is ultimately successful.
