Hand and finger injury claims
Around 10% of all Accident and Emergency Hospital admissions are for hand and finger injury. Although they are not a vital organ like the heart or lungs, our hands are extremely critical to our everyday living tasks. If a hand injury has prevented you from working, then hand and finger injury compensation may be able to help you financially. The hand is extremely complex consisting of some 27 bones. These are surrounded by a network of ligaments, nerves, muscles and cartilage. It is because of this that the variety of hand injuries is so high. Symptoms can range from discomfort and soreness, through to broken and fractured bones; if you have suffered a hand injury then you may be eligible to claim compensation through making hand injury claims.
Our hands are relied on for so many tasks and for everyday living. It is for this reason that they should be taken care of. This means that if you suffer a hand injury, you should seek medical attention for it straight away. Medical professionals can treat the injury and advise on rehabilitation and physiotherapy if needed. Hand injury compensation is available to those whose life has suffered as the result of an injury. There are many ways to your hand can be injured. These vary from car accidents to slipping and falling. They can even happen through an accident at work, or through an industrial illness – such as vibration white finger or carpal tunnel syndrome. In these cases it is an employer’s responsibility to protect its employees. If they don’t, they leave themselves open to hand injury claims.
Below is a list of common hand and finger injury types:
Fractures and breaks – Fractures and breaks to bones in the hand and wrist are common injuries. They are frequently sustained in slips, falls and accidents at work. They are common features of hand injury claims.
Lacerations and contusions – Cuts and bruises to the hand can result in hand injury claims if the injuries are serious enough. If the lacerations go deep enough they can cause muscle and nerve damage and result in hand injury compensation.
Carpal tunnel syndrome – Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause harm to the hand muscles due to restricted blood flow to the median nerve in the wrist. It is a common industrial condition caused by excessive use of the wrist.
Vibration white finger – Vibration white finger can cause pain, numbness and discolouration of the hand and fingers. It is caused by excessive use of vibrating machinery.
