Finger Injury Compensation Claims
Suffered finger injury in an accident that was not your fault? If you have, you may be eligible to make finger injury compensation claims.
While most injuries to the finger are minor, crush injuries and fractures may lead to long term complications. Fingers play an important role when it comes to getting hold of objects, writing, eating, etc and serious injuries to the finger may result in loss of sensation of the fingers, loss of mobility as well as loss of grip. In the most severe cases, major injuries to the fingers may result in amputation of one or more fingers leading to nerve damage, deformity and loss of job prospects.
If you have suffered finger injury due to the negligence of another person, it is important for you to seek legal advice and get your finger injury compensation claim moving.
The amount of compensation that a person may receive following finger injuries varies. Compensation payable usually depends on the type of injuries sustained and the severity of the injuries. Following an accident, there are many different types of finger injuries that a person may suffer. Some examples include:
- Serious fractures to the finger leading to partial amputation or deformity
- Total loss of a finger
- Partial loss of a finger
Most of the injuries involving the finger are minor and victims are able to recover from these injuries quickly. However, injuries such as crush injuries or fractures can lead to ongoing complications, loss of mobility, grip or feeling in the fingers.
How much is my claim worth?
