Compensation claims for hand injuries commonly arise in both slip, trip and fall claims and accidents at work where people using a drill or heavy machinery have become caught their hands and suffered broken bones, cuts or amputations. As such they can involve potentially life changing injuries. If you have injured your hand in an accident you deserve compensation for the pain and suffering you have experienced.
Sometimes hand injuries involve the amputation of fingers, thumbs or even the whole hand and the awards of compensation for such severe injuries can vary greatly depending upon the functionality the person is left with. Left severe hand injuries can still cause a lot of discomfort and inconvenience, even if its such tasks as getting washed or cooking food.
