Hand Injury Compensation Claims

Injuries to the hand are very common.  In fact, they account for almost 10% of all A&E visits in the UK.  Any kind of hand injury can lead to long term complications and therefore it is essential to seek medical treatment no matter how serious or minor the injury is.

Causes Of Hand Injuries

There are a number of ways in which you can sustain injuries to your hand.  However, some of the common causes of hand injuries which can give rise to compensation claims include the following:

Road accidents – accidents on the road can cause a variety of injuries including injuries to the hand.  If you have injured your hand whether as a driver, passenger or pedestrian in a road accident, you may be able to claim financial compensation.

Motorbike and cycling accidents – motorbike riders and pedal cyclists are quite vulnerable on the road.  When road accidents involving them take place, it results in serious injuries.  In most cases, serious injuries are sustained to the hand, arms and shoulders.

Slips and trips – no matter where you slip or trip, you are likely to sustain injuries to your hand even if it is a minor injury.  This is because when a person falls, it is a natural instinct to try to break the fall with the hands.  The hands are very delicate and they cannot support the weight of the body.  This is the reason the hands commonly get injured during slips and trips.  A hand injury compensation claim may be possible if your slips or trips have occurred at work or at a public place.

Work accidents – there are a number of occupations where workers are at a risk of sustaining hand injuries.  Chefs, cooks and kitchen staff can easily sustain injuries to the hand as a result of using sharp objects such as knives.  Machinery workers, manual labourers as well as those who work in construction sites, factories and warehouses are at an increased risk of sustaining hand injuries due to the nature of their jobs.
