Losing a Finger

The loss of any limb through amputation is a deeply traumatic experience for someone to go through. As well as being aesthetically disfiguring, losing a finger in an accident can have deep ramifications on how victims go through their day-to-life for the rest of their lives.

The trauma and frustration will almost always be worsened if the injury was caused because of negligence of another, but did you know that if you have lost a finger in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to a significant compensation payment.

What you could claim
There are a number of differing degrees of severity (and therefore compensation levels) when it comes to compensation claims. Listed below are some of the different types of injury, and what you could expect to receive in compensation*.

  • Amputation of index or middle finger that leaves the victim’s potential to grip severely weakened - £52,000
  • Amputation of ring or little finger - £12,500
  • Amputation of the terminal phalanges (the bones that make up your fingers and toes, the terminal ones would be the ones furthest out from your body so the bone forming the tip of your finger would be one of your terminal phalanges) of the index and middle fingers - £15,000
  • Loss of an index finger - £11,000
  • Loss of a middle finger - £9,000
  • Complete loss of little finger - £12,000
  • Partial loss of little finger - £4,500
  • Severe finger fracture leading to partial amputation - £20,000
  • Partial loss of a finger leading to loss of grip - £10,000
  • A single finger fracture between £1,500 - £3,000 depending on recovery time
