Work-related Upper Limb Disorders

Work-related upper limb disorders are defined as any condition affecting the muscles and bones of the shoulder, arm, wrist, hand or elbow. People working in all kinds of sectors are at risk, but those who often repeat the same movements, for instance employers who work on a factory line or in a job which involves typing, could be particularly vulnerable.

Upper limb disorders can be severely debilitating, leaving people unable to work and in constant pain. At Your Personal Injury Partner we understand this and always push for the highest compensation payouts possible, reflecting the severity of a situation.

If you’ve developed an upper limb disorder due to your work we can help you claim compensation which can be used to cover medical fees and lost earnings. To find out more call us now on 01782 608 744 or fill in our online enquiry form and someone will be in touch.
