We use our fingers in everyday life to carry out almost every task, from buttoning up clothes to preparing breakfast, to carrying out our jobs and driving the car. Breaking your fingers can result in serious, permanent damage that can affect your ability to be independent and do things for yourself. Even minor injuries could have serious consequence, so seeking medical advice to rule out permanent damage is important if you have sustained injuries to your fingers.
Once you are on the road to recovery, why not make a claim for broken fingers compensation? It could be that you’re entitled to compensation after your employer has been negligent, or maybe you’ve suffered an injury after tripping on a damaged pavement. Whatever has happened, Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
How long will your injuries take to heal?
Broken fingers usually take between four to six weeks to heal and in severe cases, surgery may be needed to realign the bones in your fingers. Most finger fractures require a splint or cast to be worn to support the damaged finger as it heals. You may find it hard to work whilst your finger is healing, particularly if you have a manual job, so you might need to take time off, which can affect your finances.
If you’ve fractured your finger due to crush injuries whilst operating heavy machinery at work or suffered a workplace slip, trip or fall, you could be left with serious injuries which could leave you unable to work. Could your employer have done more to prevent your accident from happening? If so, you may have a viable claim for broken fingers compensation. Since 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has helped hundreds of people like you to claim compensation after fracturing their fingers at work. Our professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so there are no expensive fees stopping you from making a claim.
How much compensation could you get?
The amount you’ll be awarded, if your claim is successful, is worked out on an individual basis and takes into account the severity of your injuries, any long-term damage, pain and suffering and any financial losses (such as loss of wages). You could receive a substantial settlement if you have suffered severe injuries which have left you unable to return to work. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out if you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.
