Injury to any part of the body can be devastating and can significantly restrict your everyday activities. However, one of the most painful and restrictive places you can injure is your forearm. Without the use of your arms, it is very hard or nearly impossible to carry out most daily activities, such as shopping, cleaning, cooking, and most tasks at work.
If your forearm injury was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another, you may be entitled to compensation. Your forearm settlement lawyer can help you file a lawsuit and get the full compensation that you deserve for the injuries you have sustained.
Signs to Look for After a Traumatic Injury to the Arms
The signs and symptoms of a forearm injury vary. Typically, you will feel pain. Sometimes, the injured arm may appear shorter than the uninjured arm, or it may appear crooked. Your arm may be weak, swollen or painful. You may be unable to turn it in certain directions. Your fingers may be numb or weak.
In order to get the proper treatment for your forearm injury, it is imperative that you seek immediate medical attention if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Swelling or tenderness in the arm, hand or wrist
- Any limitation in the movement of your arm or wrist
- Numbness or a tingling sensation in any part of your arm
- Significant pain when you move your arm
- Restrictions in the ability to move your arm
