Suffering broken fingers can be very painful, and a serious limitation in your daily life; it may be in your best interests to file a broken fingers accident claim. Not being able to use all of your fingers can stop you from typing or operating other workplace equipment. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may need to take time off work or study, which could have a negative impact on your near-term future. To check if you are eligible to make an accident claim, and to see what your claim could be worth, simply contact the personal injury specialists at Accident Advice Helpline. We have more than thirteen years of experience in helping accident victims.
Checking your eligibility
We can typically assist you in your claim if the accident occurred in the last three years, and was caused by someone else. If you had to see a doctor or psychological counsellor following your injury, this would also serve to strengthen your claim.
When you first contact us, one of our associates will ask you about your accident. We need to understand how your fingers were broken and who else was with you at the time. You may have been working with a colleague who dropped equipment on your fingers. Your fingers could have been stuck in a door, whether at work, or in a shop, or other public venue, or they could have been squashed by a vehicle. You may have been playing a fast-paced sport, in which another player collided with you, stood on your fingers, or smashed them with a bat, or something similar.
It is important to have a clear view about who caused your accident. Whether it was an individual, group, business, or other organisation, your ability to start a claim is considerably stronger if there is a direct link between another’s actions and your broken fingers.
The main benefits of making a claim
The main benefits of making a claim are financial and emotional. On the one hand, receiving a payout for your broken fingers injury means you have extra funds you can use for your daily life. After all, not being able to use your fingers can mean you have to stop work, which could result in reduced or even no wages. A compensation claim can be used to pay your expenses and other continued financial obligations.
Emotionally, knowing that your accident has been recognised by the guilty party can give you a healthy boost. The individual or organisation that caused your injury may have denied their culpability, which could have given you significant anxiety or irritation. Even if there was an early admission, having your accident fully recompensed can provide a sense of closure.
You can start by verifying that you have a valid claim by calling us on our free, 24-hour helpline on 0800 689 0500. You can also receive a call back from one of our associates by texting ‘claim365’ to 88010. If you don’t have time to call, our website offers lots of useful background information and general advice. Online, you can also try out our 30-second claim calculator to determine if your claim is potentially valid and what it may be worth.
