Compensation for a broken hand at work

Whether you are typing, using machinery or even driving, your hand is one of the most important body parts that is required to complete these tasks. In many cases our hands are something that we take for granted and it isn’t until we lose functionality in this part of our body that we realise exactly how important they actually are to our ability to perform common tasks. 

Our hands are used quite frequently in the workplace and as such they can be overused and we can sustain injuries as a result. In addition, when we are working with machinery it’s important that the appropriate safety equipment is worn – or our hands can become trapped in the machinery. If you find yourself sustaining a broken hand through the negligence of your employer to provide adequate working conditions then you could consider a compensation claim.

How could I sustain a broken hand at work?

At Manners Pimblett we deal with a wide range of compensation claims, but some of the most common examples of broken hands in the workplace include:

  • Injuries sustained when a hand is trapped in machinery
  • Injuries sustained from slips and falls
  • Injuries sustained through a fall from a height
  • Injuries sustained from heavy lifting and dropped items
  • Injuries sustained in a factory or on a construction site.

If I sustain a broken hand, who might I consider making a compensation claim against?

If you have sustained a broken hand through negligence in your workplace then you could be eligible to claim against anyone who you feel has been responsible for your injury. This could include your employer if you feel that they haven’t followed the appropriate safety practices to ensure the safety of both you and your fellow employees while you have been completing work there.
