Loss of Hand Compensation Claim

Our hands are probably one of the most important and regularly used parts of our bodies. We use them for both the most menial and the most complex everyday tasks. The disappointing truth is, however, that hand injuries account for almost 10% of all visits to accident and emergency departments of hospitals all over the UK. Out of this 10% there are also many cases of the loss of fingers.

Many of these cases occur while at work. These can be caused via many factors including:
  • Injury via sharp object through lack of safety equipment
  • Employers not providing adequate or competent training
  • Lack of communication between colleagues
  • Objects or equipment left on floor
These factors can lead to all kinds of hand injuries, ranging from small cuts and grazes to broken and chipped bones all the way up to severe lacerations and loss of nerve endings, but the most serious is often the actual loss of fingers.
