Our hands are practical and used for so many different things each day we rarely even think twice about it. We type, we write, we make meals, we do thousands of other things with them, including holding hands with the one we love.
Imagine then just how devastating it would be to suffer from hand crush injuries. These can occur in all kinds of ways. You might shut your hand in a car door or have something drop or fall onto it at work. While industrial workplaces could potentially have situations where something like this might happen, it is likely that injuries of this nature can happen in other ways as well.
When can hand crush injury compensation be paid out?
Regardless of how your injuries occur, they must have happened because someone else was negligent. At work it might mean someone did not follow health and safety procedures. If you have an accident, such as a car accident for example, someone else must have caused it to happen.
The amount of hand crush injury compensation you could get would depend on a variety of factors. For example you may still have the use of that hand after the accident. Alternatively you may lose all feeling in it or even have to go through an amputation. The latter examples would certainly lead to a higher compensation claim if you were successful in claiming it.
