Causes of Finger Injuries

A finger injury can be defined as an any injury that involves the fingers of the hands, or the thumbs. Although finger injuries can occur accidentally, they can also be the result of other people’s negligent behaviour.

Finger Injuries at Work

In the workplace, accidents involving the fingers are common. According to UK Health and Safety Law, all employers have a legal duty to ensure that their employers are kept as safe as possible. This means that employers must do all they can to ensure that their employers are not harmed because of the work they undertake. Employers can protect their employees by:

  • Providing regular and high-quality health and safety training so that employers know the risks of their jobs and how to reduce them
  • Providing PPE wherever appropriate so that employees can be protected from harm
  • Ensuring machinery and other equipment is well-maintained to reduce the risk of accidents occurring
  • Carrying out regular risk assessments to identify hazards and mitigate the chance of them causing harm

Sadly, finger injuries occur commonly in the workplace, particularly in circumstances where employees are expected to work with machinery, such as in factories, or with knives and other sharp utensils.

If you have suffered a finger injury in work, you may be able to claim compensation if it can be shown that your employer failed to adequately protect you from harm.

Finger Injuries from Slips, Trips, and Falls

Slips, trips, and falls all have the potential to cause injuries to the fingers and thumbs. As human beings, our instinct whenever we are about to hit the ground is to hold our hands and protect our abdomens and other areas from a potentially dangerous impact with the floor. Although this move can offer some protection to those areas, it leaves your hands and fingers vulnerable to taking the full brunt of an impact and often leads to injury.

Road Traffic Accidents

Often, your first instinct in a road traffic accident, whether you’re a pedestrian, or in a vehicle, is to try and protect yourself with your hands. This can lead to severe finger injuries. If you were involved in a road traffic accident that wasn’t your fault and you injured your fingers as a result, you could be entitled to compensation.

Types of Finger Injuries

Vibration White Finger

Vibration White Finger is a long-term condition that typically affects individuals who regularly use vibrating tools. For this reason, vibration white finger is a condition that commonly affects those involved in manual labour. 

Repetitive strain injury

Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a common injury that is caused by continually repeating the same activity, for example using a keyboard. If you continually perform the same activity, you can damage muscles, tendons, and ligaments which leads to continual pain in that area. If you find you are suffering from RSI in your fingers in the workplace, it’s your employer’s legal duty to provide you with support, whether that be wrist support or regular breaks, to avoid this type of injury occurring or worsening.

Crushing Injuries

Crushing injuries are a common type of finger injury. Whether you’re working with heavy machinery or involved in some kind of road traffic accident, crushed fingers can often occur due to how we use our hands often to try and protect ourselves. These types of injuries can often take a long time to recover from and may require surgery to fix.


Dislocations are extremely painful and quite common as a type of finger injury. Dislocations can also cause long-term injuries such as arthritis which is difficult to fully recover from.
