Taking our hands for granted
It may sound silly, but every single day we use our hands, and often, we take them for granted. Our hands are pretty much essential in everything we do, so if we injure our hands or fingers, it can become difficult to conduct a normal lifestyle. Being involved in some form of accident which injures your hands or fingers, truly can be life altering. We use our hands to communicate, make things, to use things and to help us get up, sit down, drive or even do the dishes! When you take the ability to use your hands away, you become very aware of just how important they are.
Being involved in an accident in your place of work is one of the most common places where people endure injuries to their hands. This can be because of the heavy machinery used, or the level of work carried out by using their hands. Regardless of how the individual has endured the injury, if it happened at work and the responsibility lies with someone else, such as the employer, our personal injury lawyer Tower Bridge can help you make a successful claim for compensation.
Know you are working in a safe environment
It’s important to know that you working in a safe environment and to feel safe and well looked after. If you aren’t, it’s likely that an accident may occur which can cause life changing injuries. It’s not only your hands that you can injure in a work place accident. Not having been provided with the correct resources and equipment can cause irreparable damage which may mean that you need lifelong medical attention.
It’s highly likely that you will win a work place compensation claim if you can prove that your injuries were caused by not being looked after properly by your employer. To be able to claim, it needs to have occurred in the past three years and your injuries should have been diagnosed by a doctor.
