Injury lawyer in Dorney

Ask any injury lawyer in Dorney and they will all tell you the same thing; hand injuries and resulting claims are very common, accounting for around 10% of all visits to accident and emergency departments in the UK.

Although a hand injury may sound like a minor complaint, the movement and sensitivity of our hands are so vital to our everyday life that hand injuries can be some of the most debilitating injuries of all. Accident Advice Helpline is all too familiar with this.

Treatment for hand injuries

Due to the intricate nature of the human hand, which allows us such complex movement and high sensitivity, it is vital that hand injuries be treated quickly by a medical professional. Hand injuries affecting nerves, tendons, ligaments or blood vessels have the potential to lead to permanent damage or disability if they are not treated properly. Rest, anti-inflammatories and proper support are all vital tools to aiding recovery.

Nerve damage to the hand, for example, can lead to a condition called vibration white finger, a common complaint for people claiming compensation following injuries at work following the use of machinery.

Work-related hand injuries

Many people suffer hand injuries as a result of accidents at work. Unguarded machines are often the cause of nasty hand injuries. Employers have a duty to keep dangerous machinery and blades properly guarded, which means that should a serious accident occur in the workplace the employer rarely has a defence to hand injury claims. Hands and fingers can also be injured in crushing accidents, in heavy closing doors, in lifting accidents or when moving heavy objects.

Significant disability can be caused by hand injuries, and urgent medical attention should always be given to deep cuts to the hand, where nerves and tendons may be damaged or severed, requiring emergency surgery.

Fractures of the bones in the hand are quite common in falls, where someone puts a hand out when falling. Any significant hand injury needs expert medical attention, and valuing the right amount of compensation for a hand injury claim is very much a job for a specialist claims solicitor. If you are unsure which injury lawyer in Dorney to place your claim with, then you should get some advice before you make your final decision.
