Broken bones in Durham

Hand with a bandaged finger

Taking action after suffering broken bones in Durham due to someone else’s error

Is someone else responsible for causing you broken bones in Durham? Do you need help from a personal injury lawyer?

Experiencing injuries to your fingers can be caused by playing sports, physical work or even having a slip, trip or fall. A jammed finger can be very painful and take some time for you to have the full use of your hand back. There are ways, however, that you can help a painful finger or hand recover more quickly. Make sure you do the following:

  • Check for fractures in your fingers or hands. An injury to your finger can be painful enough. If you cannot see any excessive swelling, obvious breaks or dents, or have not heard a snap, then you probably haven’t broken it, but if you continue to feel pain, it’s important you get it checked out.
  • Take painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol. These are best for a sore finger as they can reduce swelling as well as pain.
  • Put ice on your hands as this too will help to reduce swelling and pain, and can help when you are not allowed to take any more painkillers. Ice is a natural anaesthetic and can be applied as and when needed.
  • Tape your fingers together. If you tape the injured finger to the finger next to it then this can stop it from being injured further, and also from moving too much, which can cause more pain.
  • Rest the finger and elevate it. This will help the blood to leave the injured area and will also help to prevent any more pain.
