    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Do you need hand injury photos to make a claim?


    If you injured your hand, the last thing you may think of doing would be to take a photo of that injury. However, there is one very good reason why you should consider doing just that. If you were hurt because of someone’s negligent actions, you might start thinking of whether a personal injury claim could be settled in your favour. If you had hand injury photos to back up your claim, you may stand a far better chance of succeeding.

    We should point out that photos are not required to make a claim. However, they do provide further evidence of your injuries and how severe they were. It may be possible to take photos at different stages of your recovery, for example, gaining an idea of how long the injuries lasted for, and how bad they were to start with.

    Hand injury photos are also ideal if your injuries have now healed

    Most injuries do heal well in time, and while some leave scars, others leave no trace at all. It is therefore beneficial to have photos to support your story, especially if it has been some time since you suffered from your injuries.

    Some people do not find out about their chances of claiming straight away. Instead, they might wish to recover first, or they may simply not think about claiming until someone else suggests it. Since a claim can be made within three years of the injury date, it is possible the scars have long since faded before the claim is made.
