Common types of arm injuries in warehouses
Due to our 20 years of experience in dealing with work related claims, we have advised clients on a wide range of different accidents types that have led to various arm injuries in warehouses.
Some of the most common include the following:
- Serious arm injuries involving moving vehicles in factories, such as FLT’s
- Arm injuries caused by tripping, slipping and falling accidents
- Fractured arms due to squashing related accidents in warehouses
- Arm injuries caused by pallets, large items of stock or produce falling and crushing arms and hands
- Arm injuries sustained in falls from height
- Repetitive strain and repetitive injuries to arms
If you have been seriously injured at work in a warehouse, in an accident that was not your fault then you are entitled to make a claim for financial compensation.

Compensation amounts for arm injuries
The amount of compensation you can claim for an arm injury in a warehouse type accident depends on several different factors including the type of arm injury you have sustained, the severity of your arm injury, your recovery and if you have suffered any financial loss due to the accident.
The amount of compensation you could expect to receive for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries are based on a set of national guidelines called the Judicial College Guidelines.
The latest set of guidelines were published at the end of 2019 and some example guideline amounts for hand injuries are set out below:
- Most serious injury that requires amputation of both arms – £225,960 – £281,250
- Very severe injuries that causes permanent disability but just short of an amputation – £90,250 – £122,860
- Serious arm fractures to the forearm with significant disability – £36,770 – £56,180
- A severe elbow injury that leads to significant disability – £33,430 – £46,780
- Serious fracture to the forearm but with a good recovery, or expected recovery – £18,020 – £36,770
In addition to compensation for pain and suffering, we are also able to help you claim for “special damages”. These damages include any loss of past and future earnings, your pensions and medical care. Special damages often make up a very large percentage of the total claim value and in some circumstances can amount to millions of pounds.
For more information about how much you may be able to claim, read our personal injury claims calculator page.
What is a No Win No fee agreement?
We use No Win No Fee agreements to fund all of our arm related warehouse accident claims.
These agreements are called “Conditional Fee Agreements” and are also commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee” Agreement.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.

How long do you have to claim?
This is one of the most common questions that our team is asked.
The law in England & Wales states that you have 3 years from the date of your arm injury in a factory to start a claim.
This claim time limit is also commonly referred to as the “limitation period”.
We always recommend to our clients that due to the complex nature of personal injury claims, they should not delay in contacting us to start a claim.
