Getting fingers trapped in doors can be excruciatingly painful and can cause incredibly serious injuries. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a great deal of experience when it comes to helping people get compensation after they’ve had their fingers trapped in doors due to no fault of their own. Injuries that can occur as a result of having your finger or fingers trapped in a door can include breakages and extensive tissue damage. You could even lose your fingertips when such accidents occur. Read on to find out more about the dangers of getting fingers trapped in doors.
Claiming compensation for fingers trapped in doors
If the trapping of your fingers really was an accident and nobody was to blame, you won’t be able to get compensation. However, if the unfortunate incident occurred because of someone else’s negligence, call us today to find out what to do next. Many accidents like this occur because people have failed in their duty of care to others. For instance, if you trapped your fingers because of a badly-maintained door or facilities in a hotel, restaurant or any other kind of public place, we may well be able to help you get compensation.
Compensation can help you cover various costs related to your accident. You may have been forced to pay out considerable sums for medical treatment and may have lost money after taking time off work recovering. Whatever the case, we are here to help you get the money back for you. Part of your compensation will also reflect your pain and suffering.
If you ever do get your fingers trapped in a door, don’t try to pull your fingers free as this could make the situation worse. The door will need to be opened in its usual manner so your fingers can be released in most situations. We can help you determine whether the accident was someone else’s fault and let you know if you have a case. You won’t need any money to make a claim and we work on a no-win, no-fee basis.
