We rely on our hands to carry out a whole range of tasks on a daily basis, from brushing our teeth to getting washed and dressed. So what happens if you suffer a hand injury that not only makes it impossible for you to carry out these tasks alone, but also means you can no longer work, for the time being? If you’re struggling financially after your accident and you think that somebody else was to blame, you could be in line to receive personal injury compensation. Hand injury settlements can vary so much, because there are so many different types of hand injuries that you could suffer, not to mention the other factors which can affect the amount of compensation you could receive.
How much compensation is normal for hand injury settlements?
If you’ve been injured in an accident at work or in a public place, or suffered a hand injury in a road traffic accident, the good news is that Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim personal injury compensation, provided somebody else caused your accident. It’s difficult to put a figure on the average award for hand injury settlements. When you get in touch with us, we’ll ask you a number of questions designed to determine your settlement. We’ll take into account how long you needed to take off work after your accident, how severe your hand injuries are, what treatment you needed, and how you have been affected physically, emotionally and financially as a result of your accident. You could be compensated for your lost earnings, as well as for the cost of any treatment you’ve required.
What happens if I have suffered minor hand injuries?
Every year, thousands of people miss out on the opportunity to claim personal injury compensation because they assume their injuries are not serious enough. This couldn’t be further from the truth. You can make a claim even for minor injuries – so if you’ve sprained your wrist or injured your finger, you could still be entitled to make a claim, provided you sought medical attention after your accident.
