    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Can you claim if someone shuts your fingers in a car door?


    When someone shuts your fingers in a car door, the pain can be unbearable. If this has occurred to you and the other person’s actions were down to negligence and not taking care, we may be able to help you get compensation. Many of us take our fingers for granted and don’t realise how valuable they are until we are no longer able to use them. Injuries caused by fingers trapped in car doors can be severe, and crushing can even occur if you’re in a particularly unpleasant accident. Other injuries may include broken bones, bleeding, fractures, damage to soft tissue and bruising. You could even lose your fingers if they are trapped in a car door.

    What to do if someone shuts your fingers in a car door

    You need to seek help straight away if someone shuts your fingers in a car door. You will need to have seen a medical professional after any accident you wish to claim for with Accident Advice Helpline, and the medical documents that are produced after the incident can be the difference between getting compensation and going without. We need to prove that the accident definitely wasn’t your fault and would have been avoided were it not for the negligence of another party. You won’t need to give us any money to start your claim and we work on a no-win, no-fee basis.

    You have nothing to lose by getting in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to see if you’re likely to be able to make a claim. We have worked on many cases involving accidents like this and will collaborate with you to gather together as much vital evidence as we need to make the claim a success. The healing process can be very lengthy and put you out of action for a considerable period of time. Any compensation paid out to you should reflect the pain and suffering you have endured as well as any money you’ve been forced to pay out because of your accident.

    Making a claim

    Our 30-second test online will tell you if you’re likely to be able to claim and give you a rough estimate of how much you could receive. If you’d rather go straight to an advisor, this is no problem. Just call us on 0800 689 0500 on your landline or 0333 500 0993 if using your mobile.
