There are many different types of injuries that you may sustain in a personal injury accident. Traffic accidents, falls, dog bites, pool accidents, boating accidents, bicycle crashes, and pedestrian accidents can result in multiple injuries. However, one of the common injuries that may not be discussed often is wrist injuries sustained in accidents.

In an accident, you can suffer a painful wrist injury that disrupts your life and impairs your ability to perform your job. For some accident victims, a wrist injury may require surgery to repair which can lead to substantial financial damages, pain, and suffering. Regardless of the severity of your wrist injury, you deserve to be compensated for the injury and your losses if another party caused the accident.

Our Sacramento personal injury lawyers can help you file an injury claim seeking compensation for your damages. Call our law firm now for a free consultation with one of our lawyers.

Four Common Accident Injuries Involving the Wrist

  • Sprains

A wrist sprain can cause chronic pain and limit your ability to perform certain tasks. The sprain occurs when the ligaments in your wrist are damaged in an accident. The pain and reduced movement may completely go away in time. However, a grade three sprain could require surgery to repair the damage.

  • Dislocations

During an accident, bones can be forced out of their natural position. An example would be in a slip and fall when a victim tries to break the fall by placing their hand in front of them, causing the bones in the hand and/or arm to move out of position. Dislocations in the wrist can be very painful and cause long-term impairments. Therefore, you need to seek medical attention to ensure you receive proper treatment for  the injury.

  • Broken Bones and Fractures

There are 27 bones in your wrist. Trauma from a car accident, fall, or other injury can easily break one or more of these bones. Delicate surgery may be required to repair the damage. However, some accident victims suffer ongoing pain and permanent impairment from the fracture.

Common types of fractures that occur in the wrist including crushed hands, fractured knuckles, scaphoid fractures, broken fingers, and broken wrists. It is important to see an experienced orthopedic surgeon to determine the level of damage from a wrist fracture.

  • Tendon Damage

The tendons in your wrist connect the wrist bones to the surrounding muscles. An accident can cause inflammation of the tendons which can lead to tendonitis. Therefore, it is important to see a doctor to diagnose an injury so that you can learn how to treat the injury to avoid further damage to the wrist or long-term discomfort and impairment.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
