Gateshead is a significant town in Tyne and Wear, a county in the north of England. The town occupies a central position within the county, and has a population of over 120,000 people. Some people assume it is a city, and it is easy to see why this might be assumed, as it is very modern in places and has larger buildings present, too. You probably wouldn’t have much trouble finding Gateshead accident claim solicitors if you ever had to, either.
There are many injuries people can sustain that might lead them to find a solicitor locally who could take on a compensation claim for them. Broken fingers are just one example of injuries that can easily happen. A broken finger is very painful and should be seen by a medical professional, to ensure it has broken cleanly and will not cause any problems as it heals.
Is it worth contacting Gateshead accident claim solicitors for a broken finger?
Fingers tend to be susceptible to injury since we use them for so many reasons during the average day. We type with them, we use them to help us write, and of course to manage many tasks that would otherwise be impossible. They are also prone to getting caught in things if we are not careful. You might end up shutting a finger in a car door, for example, or in a sliding door. This can easily cause the finger to break.
Other scenarios that might lead to a broken finger could include being in a car accident, or suffering a fall whereby you put your hands out to stop the fall, only to break one or more fingers by falling in an awkward manner. There might also be the potential to catch a finger in machinery at work, and this could break it or even cause you to lose the top of the finger if you were unlucky. The big question in every case, however, is whether that accident might have been prevented if someone had been more responsible. For example, might you have been safer if your employer had enacted the recommendations in a risk assessment?
