If you are wondering about damages awarded for a broken hand, then you could take the 30-second test on the Accident Advice Helpline website. This will give you an estimate of the damages awarded for broken hand injuries. If you have broken your hand in an accident that was not your fault which occurred in the last three years, then perhaps you have a case to file for personal injury compensation.
Damages awarded for a broken hand
If you play sports or are a professional musician, and have damages awarded for a broken hand, you might receive more compensation than some other people with the same injury, because you can claim for loss of earnings if your injury means that you cannot work for a period of time. In some jobs you can still work with one hand, but for others this is impossible. No one can say how much the damages awarded for a broken hand might be, as each case is different. That is why the 30-second test and other such calculators can only give you an estimate of the damages to be awarded.
You may have fallen and put out your hand to break your fall, which could have resulted in your broken hand. You may have fallen in the street because of an uneven pavement, or you could have slipped on a wet floor in a supermarket. In either such case, you may have grounds to file a personal injury compensation claim, as you may be able to prove that your accident was caused by negligence on the part of another person.
If you fall in the street because of a broken paving slab, the local authority may be to blame. It has the responsibility to maintain all roads and pavements and keep them in a good state of repair. If you slipped in a supermarket, then you may be able to claim damages from the owner.
