If broken phalanges sounds painful, that’s because it usually is! Phalanges is, as you might guess, the plural of the singular term, which is phalanx. This is a bone that can be found in both the hands and the feet in humans. With 14 in each hand and foot, that makes a total of 56 in each human.
Our hands and feet can be prone to injury in all kinds of ways. We can drop things on our feet. We might get a finger trapped in a door. Crush injuries can be particularly common if we end up being injured in an accident, no matter how it might occur.
Are you thinking about claiming broken phalanges compensation?
This is a fair point to consider. The reality is that you must be able to point to someone else as the third party that caused the accident or injury in the first place. There are many professional injury compensation lawyers working in this particular area of law who can consider whether or not you might be able to make a claim.
This is much better than trying to work out the facts on your own. For that reason it is usually best to get no-obligation advice even if you don’t think you could claim broken phalanges compensation. You never know whether there could be evidence that supports someone else as the responsible party.
Compensation for other losses
When you break your foot you can be out of action for quite a while. You might need to visit the hospital for outpatient appointments. You might lose money at work by doing so, plus have the expenses of getting to the hospital and back too. These expenses can all be taken into account when making a claim, so keep any receipts you have that will support this process.
