There might be situations at work or when you’re out in public where you are involved in an accident that results in cuts to your hands and feet. Not only can these types of injuries be incredibly painful – particularly cuts to your feet, which are very sensitive – but they can also be debilitating as if your feet are badly cut you may be unable to walk, and cuts to your hands might mean you’re unable to do everyday tasks such as wash dishes or carry out your work.
We can help you to claim compensation if you’ve suffered cuts to your hands and feet in an accident at work or in public. Since we were established in 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has been here for hundreds of customers and helped them claim personal injury compensation, and we are proud to have been recommended by our patron, UK consumer champion Dame Esther Rantzen.
What types of accident could cause cuts to your hands and feet?
Cuts to hands and feet could occur in a variety of different types of accident – here are a few which we have handled claims for over the years:
- Glazier accident where a glazier drops a pane of glass and falls from height onto it
- Trying on shoes in a department store where broken glass has not been cleared up
- A slip, trip or fall on a public street where there is broken glass
- Accident in a factory working with glass products which are defective or broken
- Explosions where glass is blown out of its frame – you could suffer defensive cuts to your hands
- Faulty consumer goods such as a vase or drinking glass shattering in your hand
- Broken glass next to a swimming pool which you step on or fall on could injure your feet
Making a claim for compensation
Cuts to your hands and feet could take time to heal and in the case of deep lacerations, stitches or surgery may be needed. If you’ve been affected and have needed time off work, we can help you to claim compensation for your loss of earnings, pain and suffering.
If you can prove somebody else is to blame for your accident, such as a shop owner or your employer, then give Accident Advice Helpline a ring on 0800 689 0500. Our team of expert personal injury advisors are on hand with confidential, no-obligation advice, whatever your situation.
