Elbow Injury Compensation Claim
Your elbow is what is classed as a hinge joint, which connects the lower end of the humerus bone in the upper arm and the upper end of the radius and ulnar bones in the lower arm; ligaments are also located at the front, back and sides of the elbow in order to help stabilise the joint. The arm is bent and rotated at the elbow by the biceps muscles in the upper arm.
Your elbow is an easy joint to damage because when you think about it I bet the majority of you have already bumped your elbow at least once today; so far I’ve managed to knock mine twice already today; so just think about how easy it would be to cause damage to your elbow in an accident.
Injuries to your elbow can be minor or serious but the symptoms that you are likely to experience, regardless of whether your injury was minor or severe are as follows; pain, swelling, numbness, tingling, weakness or a decreased range of motion. So what causes these symptoms?
