Common Causes of Wrist Injuries
Hand and wrist pain after a car accident is typical for passengers and drivers. Drivers typically injure their wrists when gripping the steering wheel when bracing for impact. At impact, the energy from the crash is released directly into the hand and wrist.
Blunt force trauma is another common cause. This happens when the driver or passenger strikes something inside the vehicle. The force of impact can shift an individual forward, backward, or sideways, causing various injuries.
The hand or wrist can forcefully come in contact with the following parts of a vehicle:
- Center console
- Steering wheel
- Window or door

Understanding Your Legal Options
If you have suffered a hand or wrist injury in an accident, you can file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver. However, insurance companies have one goal – to settle for as little as possible. Therefore, dealing with the insurance company, calculating the amount you’re entitled to, and receiving your compensation is complicated.
A car accident attorney works alongside auto accident victims to quantify damages and ensure the injured party receives total and fair compensation. The damages you can qualify for include past and future medical expenses, property damage, and lost wages. Your attorney will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
