Finger Injury Compensation

Finger injuries can be caused as a result of workplace accidents, at home, at a public place, during sports, due to slips and trips and so on.  They can occur under numerous circumstances such as when the fingers become trapped in machinery or fingers get cut while making use of sharp objects such as knives.  Injuries to the finger can range from tearing, crushing or amputations of the finger tips or the thumbs.  Injuries can include damage to soft tissues, the skin, nails and even the nailbed.

If you have suffered injuries to your finger and if it was due to the fault of someone else, you may be in a position to seek financial compensation. Finger injury compensation usually varies depending on the extent and severity of the injury.

Given below are some examples of compensation amounts that can be expected in claims arising out of finger injuries and thumb injuries.

Fracture to one finger – a simple fracture to one of the finger where recovery can be made within a year can fetch compensation in the region of £1,700 and £3,400.

Fractures including injuries to tendons – such injuries may cause permanent stiffness in the finger and loss of grip as well.  Therefore, compensation in the region of £3,000 to £11,000 can be expected.

Partial amputation – if a finger has been partially amputated, then compensation in the region of £2,500 to £13,500 can be obtained.  The level of compensation will be towards the higher end of the compensation bracket for amputation of the index finger.

Complete amputation of a finger – if a finger has been completely lost, it can affect the ability of the hand to function properly and it can also cause physical deformity.  Compensation for loss of a finger can range from £5,000 to £65,000.

Injury to the thumb – if your thumb has been injured and if recovery is possible within a short time, then compensation award up to £1,600 can be obtained.

Fractured thumb – fractures to the thumb which requires at least 6 months for recovery may attract compensation award up to £2,800.

Dislocated thumb with tendon damage – if surgical treatment is required in the fusion of the thumb joint and if the injury has restricted movement or functioning of the thumb, then compensation in the region of £2,500 to £9,000 can be obtained.

Severed thumb – amputation of the thumb or injury which requires metal insertion can attract compensation between £8,000 and £39,000.
