Claiming compensation for a serious finger injury

We don’t tend to think too much about all the things we ask of our fingers and thumbs until something happens to one of them. Even a broken finger can be highly problematic because it cannot be used until it heals.

While our fingers are relatively robust and can withstand certain things happening to them, there are instances where a serious injury can occur. For example a finger can easily become trapped in a door. It can also be bent back and broken in the right (or wrong) circumstances.

If you have ever damaged a finger in an accident of any kind, it might be worth considering whether someone else was at fault. For example if someone closes a door on your finger without checking to see whether it was clear first, they could potentially be found to be at fault or negligent.

If you are at work you should have the correct safety equipment for the job you are doing. If this was not available and you injured your finger as a result, this could be deemed to be negligent behaviour. It is important to seek proper advice about claiming compensation for a serious finger injury in these situations so you can determine whether or not you have a case.

What can the potential consequences be if you damage a finger?

Damage to a finger can be temporary or permanent. For example a break can heal but it may also result in some loss of feeling, depending on the nature of the injury. In some cases an injured finger may end up being left completely numb if nerves are cut and cannot be repaired. In many cases early medical treatment may make a difference. In the most severe cases part or all of a finger may be lost completely.
