The impact and forces experienced when vehicles crash often result in strained muscles, damaged ligaments, and routinely cause the lower radius and ulna bones to break or splinter. Recovery often lasts many months and a return to normalcy may never be achieved. Long lasting pain from arthritis and immobility can affect you the rest of your life. In these cases, the responsible driver and their insurance carriers should pay you for all of the problems the wrist injury might cause over the remainder of your life.
It is instinctual for most drivers’to try and protect themselves and their passengers with their hands and arms when in a vehicle accident. Bracing for impact or gripping the wheel tightly leads to extreme forces being placed on your wrist causing serious damage to the bones, tendons, nervesand muscles of the hand, wrist and lower arm. Airbag deployment into the hand and wrist is another common mechanism of collision-related wrist injuries.
