Hello, this is Jim, a dual-qualified lawyer (UK & Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you today.
Without seeing your medical records and medical evidence, it is difficult to say but you should know that for serious arm injuries, compensation ranges from e50,000 up to around e145,000.
This is excluding any award for your future loss of earnings. And the medical expert should confirm whether you meet the definition of "disabled", meaning a serious impairment which affects your day to day life. The bulk of these claims arise from lost earnings, care, aids and equipment, etc. So the figures above are only for the actual injury - the compensation is made up of that plus past losses and future losses too. You could reasonably claim loss of earnings up to your notional retirement age if the medical expert (upper limb orthopaedic consultant - the solicitors will instruct one for you) agrees that you cannot work again.
I hope this helps? If I have answered the question would you kindly leave me a 5 star rating (at the top of your screen), any follow up questions are welcomed.
