Have you suffered a broken or fractured hand?
As there are many bones, muscles and tendons located in the hand, it is possible to suffer multiple breaks and fractures if you sustain an injury to this area. Unless you also suffer a deep cut to your hand or wrist, the injury is unlikely to be life-threatening but it could be extremely painful.
If you’ve sustained any suspect break or fracture, it’s important that you seek medical help immediately. Doctors may need to reset the bone or provide you with a splint so that it can heal correctly.
However, these types of injuries can take months to heal so it’s likely that your normal routine will be affected. If you only have the use of one hand whilst you’re recovering, you may be unable to drive, go to work or carry out your usual tasks.
Due to the affect this could have on you, you should seriously consider making a claim for compensation if you have sustained this type of injury.
