No, you can't refuse to be handcuffed if you have a wrist injury
If you refuse to do this then they will force you for this and you have to be handcuffed. but if you request cops to not to handcuff because of injury whatever you have there is a possibility that you can get rid off. for any legal query you can visit lawtendo website they will suggest you to how to tackle any legal query also arrange the best attorney for you

You can refuse anything, but you will still be place in cuffs.
Note: A wrist injury that doesn't require a cast IS NOT sufficient to be aggravated by handcuffs.

All you can do is bring it to the officers attention. What happens next is up to him, not up to you. If there is visible sign of an injury, he may offer an alternative. I always carried a transport belt with me so I could cuff them up front.

You can refused to be handcuffed for any or no reason.
It's what happens next that's interesting.

You cannot refuse to be constrained, even if they have to wrap you up in a blanket and tie you up and carry you.
However, the policies vary by jurisdiction. For example, felony arrests in Los Angeles must be constrained. Unless the injury to your wrist is with a cast or wrist bandage, they will probably just get more determined.
The restraining of misdemeanor arrests is discretionary to the officer. They can choose other methods if they have them available. Refusing to comply to an officer raises their authority and a combative attitude even more so. Don't be in a situation to get arrested, especially with a wrist injury.

No. I don’t think so. You know how rude these cops are.

No, police don't give a sh*t about your hurt wrist, if you have a cast and they can't fit cuffs they'll use zip ties.

Not unless you want to be rewarded with a charge of resisting arrest.
