    How to claim crushed fingers injury compensation


    How to claim crushed fingers injury compensation

    Do you take your fingers for granted? We are probably all guilty of doing it, to be honest. We type, we pick things up and put them down, we perform hundreds of tiny tasks with our hands and fingers daily and we don’t even think about it.

    Until, of course, we suffer an injury to one or more fingers. This can happen in a selection of ways. If something is dropped on your fingers one or more of them could easily be crushed. Soft tissue damage, bleeding, bruising and broken bones are all a possibility. In the worst-case scenario you could sever one or more fingers and end up losing them in the process.

    Other examples of accidents that may cause crushed fingers

    Few people will suffer an accident in their place of work, but it can potentially happen in isolated cases. If you experience crushed fingers as a result of poorly-maintained machinery, or because your working practices were not as safe as they should have been, you could claim crushed fingers injury compensation. Remember, broken bones and tissue damage can often heal, but even then you will go through considerable pain before that happens.

    Fingers also have a tendency to get caught up and damaged in other accidents as well. Some people have experienced the pain of having a finger shut in a door for example – whether this relates to a car door or perhaps the door of a property for instance. Whatever happens, the main question will be whether someone else caused that incident to happen.

    Could you claim crushed fingers injury compensation?

    There is a possibility this might be the case if you know someone else was at fault and you have proof of that as well. Unfortunately some people are confused as to how to go about finding out the facts, and how to proceed with a claim.
