Finger Injury Claims
In the UK, thousands of people suffer finger injuries every year. However, they don’t realise that they could be eligible to recover compensation if the accident was not their fault. If you have sustained injuries to your finger in an accident that was caused by another person, you may be entitled to bring finger injury claims.
Types Of Accidents
There are many different types of accidents which can result in finger injuries. Given below are some of the main accident types which can give rise to finger injury claims.
Accidents at work – finger injuries are common in workplaces which involve use of machinery and electrical equipment. Even workers who are required to make use of computers on a regular basis can sustain finger injuries.
Slips, trips and falls – such accidents are quite common during the rainy season. They can also occur due to other people’s negligence. For example, slips can occur in shops and supermarkets if there is wet flooring or if spillages have not be cleaned properly. Similarly, trips and falls can occur on roads and public pavements as a result of defects and debris.
Criminal assaults – finger injuries can occur if you have been an unfortunate victim of a criminal assault.
Sporting activities – contact sports such as rugby and football carry a higher risk of sustaining injuries. Finger and hand injuries are some of the common types of injuries sustained when sporting accidents take place.
Finger injuries can also occur if you perform repetitive tasks on a regular basis. These types of injuries are known as repetitive strain injuries and they can affect workers who make use of computers on a regular basis or those who operate vibrating machinery.
Make A Claim
Finger injuries can be minor or they can be serious. So the level of compensation that can be obtained following a finger injury depends on the severity of the injury and the amount of time it takes to make full recovery. In addition, it will also depend on the effect the injury has on the person’s ability to carry out day to day tasks, work and his lifestyle.
In any case, it is advisable to consult an injury solicitor if your finger injury was caused due to another person’s negligence.
