Finger Tendon Injury Claims

What Are Finger Tendon Injury Claims?

Finger tendon injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have injured a tendon in 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 tendon injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time of your accident, the effect that the finger tendon injury has had on your quality of life and any financial consequences of an injured finger tendon.

Making Finger Tendon Injury Claims for Compensation

Finger tendon injury claims have to show that a finger tendon injury has been sustained and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a damaged finger tendon can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party caused your finger tendon injury 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 tendon injury claim. At a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from your injured finger tendon, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do – nor should be made a priority ahead of recovering from your injured finger tendon.

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

How Much Can I Claim for a Finger Tendon Injury?

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

As mentioned above, the effect that a finger tendon injury makes to your quality of life will also be taken into account along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still suffering from a finger tendon injury. Any quantifiable psychological consequences of your finger tendon injury accident – for example any confidence issues you may suffer due to the nature of your accident – will also be integrated into your finger tendon injury claim.

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

How Expensive are Finger Tendon Injury Claims to Pursue?

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

However, not all solicitors offer “No Win, No Fee” finger tendon 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 tendon injury compensation be unsuccessful. Your solicitor should explain the exact terms and conditions to you prior to accepting your claim for finger tendon injury compensation.
