Finger Injury Claims

Introduction to Finger Injury Claims

Finger injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have suffered a broken bone or a soft tissue injury to your finger in an accident for which somebody else was primarily to blame. Irrespective of how your injury was sustained, by making a successful claim for a finger injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time of your accident, the effect that your injured finger has had on your quality of life and any financial consequences of being incapacitated by a finger injury.

Eligibility to Make Finger Injury Claims for Compensation

Finger injury claims have to show that an injury has been sustained to the bones or soft tissues in your finger and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a finger injury can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party is responsible for the damage to your finger through their negligent actions – or lack of actions – can often be more difficult.

Police reports or accident reports may need to be compiled and evidence gathered in support of your finger injury claim. At a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from your injured finger, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do and should not be made a priority before your have recovered from your finger injury.

Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making finger injury claims for compensation with a solicitor as soon as practically possible. A solicitor will assess your claim for a finger injury, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your finger injury claim and advise you if you have a claim for finger injury compensation which is worth your while to pursue.

How Much is my Claim for a Finger Injury Worth?

How much compensation for a finger injury you will be entitled to receive will depend on your own personal circumstances. A solicitor will calculate the value of your finger injury claim by considering the severity of your injury in relation to your age, sex and general state of health prior to the accident which was responsible for the injury to your finger.

As mentioned above, the effect that the damaged finger has on your quality of life will also be taken into account when compiling a claim for finger injury compensation along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still suffering from a physical injury. Any quantifiable psychological consequences of the accident which led to your injured finger – for example any confidence issues you may have in the future due to the nature of your finger accident – will also be integrated into your finger injury claim.

You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to your finger injury when making a claim for finger injury compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical attention following your accident and finger injury, to additional transport costs if you are unable to drive while recovering from an injured finger. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for finger injury compensation – including overtime and pension contributions.

“No Win, No Fee” Finger Injury Claims for Compensation

Provided that your solicitor believes there is a strong likelihood of your claim for finger injury compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your finger injury claim on a “No Win, No Fee” basis. This usually means that, should you lose your claim for finger injury compensation, you will not owe your solicitor for their legal fees and, when your finger injury claim is successful, you will retain 100 percent of your compensation settlement.

However, not all solicitors offer “No Win, No Fee” finger injury claims on the same basis, and it may be necessary for you to take out an insurance policy to protect yourself from potential financial exposure should your claim for finger injury compensation be unsuccessful and you become liable for the defendant´s legal fees. Your solicitor should explain the exact terms and conditions of a “No Win, No Fee” finger injury claim prior to accepting your claim.
