The hands are essential tools that assist us in almost every task we undergo. Anyone who has ever had a hand/arm fracture knows that only then does one realize how important it is to have your hands and fingers functioning perfectly and how the simplest actions can become a huge challenge once one of them is damaged.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident that was someone else’s fault, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. A finger injury claim table includes injuries to any finger or to the thumb. Even a superficial finger injury can be very annoying and can cause a lot of pain. In the case that the injury is close to a joint it also becomes very hard to heal. Because we are using our hands and fingers almost non-stop, the joints are continuously bending and thus disturbing the healing process of the skin.
A small injury cannot, of course, make the subject of a claim for compensation. But if you are not able to use one or more fingers, and especially if this is affecting your work, you should sue for the money that you deserve.
The finger injury claim table of compensation
The expenses covered, first of all, are things like medical costs that you’ve had and that you will have until full recovery. However, if you are unable to work for a certain period of time, you are also entitled to receive any lost wages.
The compensation you receive also depends on the fingers that have been injured. The most important and most valued fingers are the thumb and the index finger. The middle and ring fingers are next in the finger injury compensation hierarchy, and the little finger is last.

Useful information about finger injury claims
If you’re considering working with us to file your personal injury claim, you should know that any collaboration with AAH is on a no-win-no-fee basis.
Also, most finger injury claims are resolved over the telephone. The victim never has to go to court, although something you might be asked to do is attend another medical check-up.
It is not important what kind of accident was the cause of your finger injury. It could have been a road accident, a slip, trip or fall or an accident at work. As long as it happened because of someone else’s fault and your accident occurred within the last 3 years, you qualify to make a compensation claim.
