Injured Hand at Work
The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was to blame then you are entitled to seek personal injury compensation for the physical, emotional and financial pain that you have suffered and there are few ailments which cause as much pain as an injured hand at work.
Injured Hand at Work?
If you work with machinery or in an industrial environment then an injured hand at work is likely to be a painful and serious injury which will cause a great deal of long-term difficulties and hardships for you as a victim. As well as causing a great deal of physical pain, an injured hand at work, if serious, is likely to alter what you are capable of doing for the rest of your life, may mean that you are no longer able to work and could lead to significant psychological effects as a result. It is for this reason that many people who suffer from an injured hand at work do turn to personal injury compensation to be able to receive the help that they require. As well as this need, it is also worth noting that employers do have a legal and moral responsibility to your safety as an employee and as such, you deserve to be able to gain some recompense if they have shirked this responsibility.
How Long Do you Have to Claim?
If you do think that you may have a compensation claim, you need to know the basic details of the process and the first of these is the issue of how long you have to make a claim. In the vast majority of cases you have a period of three years from the event in question in which to begin claims proceedings and if more time than this elapses then you can no longer claim. The only types of claim which are exempt from this three year rule are those which deal with injuries to minors and those regarding industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning.
