These cases relate to any situation whereby you have been hurt in an accident and you think someone else was at fault. While very few accidents happen in British workplaces today, some still do occur. When they do, they may lead to an outcome that could change the way you look at life. Amputation is a very rare occurrence, for example, but even the loss of a finger would likely affect the way you do certain things. It would depend which finger you lost, and how much of it was lost in the accident. However, in any event, if negligence was the cause of the loss, you could claim compensation.
Have you lost a finger in a work accident?
Breaking a finger is a painful injury to sustain, and it can happen if you fall awkwardly or get your finger shut in a door. However, in some instances, the extent of the injury does not stop there. If you get your finger trapped in a door, or in machinery at work, for example, you could end up losing the finger altogether.
Amputation is the description given to the loss of a body part. In some instances, a finger or other body part can be reattached if the part is recovered and protected while it and the patient are quickly transported to hospital. This does not always work, however – a lot will depend on how the injury occurred, how much time has passed, and so on. Thankfully, only a few people know what it is like to lose a finger in an accident at work, but if you are among them, you could be entitled to compensation.
