If you suffer a finger injury, then it can be difficult to know if you have sprained, dislocated or fractured it. If your finger injury was the fault of someone else, then you should be speaking with an injury lawyer in Thaxted to see if you are entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
The symptoms of some finger injuries
If you have sprained, dislocated or fractured your finger, then the symptoms can be very similar. They are:
The finger can look deformed, particularly with a break or dislocation, and you should seek immediate medical attention, otherwise it may always look that way.

You may need an x-ray to confirm the diagnosis to find out which injury your finger has and how it needs treating. A sprain will heal in its own time, but the other injuries will need medical intervention, and at their worst a finger could need surgery to realign bones, or insert pins to hold them together.
Sometimes what is called buddy taping is used in a clean break. This is where the broken finger is strapped to the finger next to it, the healthy finger acting as a splint for the damaged one.
Whatever finger injury you have, as long as you were the innocent victim of the accident you were involved in, then you should be entitled to make a personal injury claim using the lawyer in Thaxted from Accident Advice Helpline to help you.
