Compensation for Bruising an Arm in an Accident in a Supermarket

I read that I may be able to claim compensation for bruising an arm in an accident in a supermarket, but can you tell me how much compensation for bruises can be claimed?

It is possible to make a claim for any personal injury sustained in an accident that was caused by negligence of a third party, although whether it will be worth your while claiming compensation for bruising an arm in an accident in a supermarket will depend on the extent of your injury and if health complications have been suffered.

Bruises are usually considered minor injuries, although they have potential to cause potentially life threatening health problems. A bruise is typically a fairly superficial injury which looks unsightly, and the damaged blood vessels in the arm usually heal quickly with no lasting ill effects on the health. While relatively rare, haematomas can form due to bruising and there may be internal bleeding caused by damage to major blood vessels and soft tissues.

It should certainly be worth your while to claim for bruises from an accident in a supermarket if you have suffered health problems secondary to the bruises you sustained. If you damaged underlying soft tissues, it is likely that a claim can be justified and will be worthwhile pursuing.

Unfortunately, we cannot tell you how much compensation for a bruised arm in a supermarket can be claimed without further medical information about your injury, which must come from an assessment made by a doctor. If you have not visited a doctor about the bruise to your arm, it is essential that you do so as soon as possible. Not only will this ensure health complications are prevented – as far as is possible – but you not be entitled to make a claim for a bruise from a supermarket accident if your case cannot be supported by your medical records.

Once you have received medical treatment and you are aware of the severity of your injury you should contact a personal injury solicitor for legal advice about making a claim for a bruise from a supermarket accident. You will have your entitlement to claim compensation for bruising an arm in an accident in a supermarket assessed, and if you are eligible to claim for bruises from an accident in a supermarket, you will be told how much compensation you should be entitled to recover by taking legal action against the supermarket.

Once you are aware of your financial liabilities from making a claim and how much compensation for a bruised arm in a supermarket you are likely to recover, you can then make an informed decision about whether it will be worth your claiming against the supermarket’s public liability insurance policy.
