Loss of Finger Compensation

Information about Loss of Finger Injury Claims

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

Establishing Your Eligibility to Make Loss of Finger Injury Claims

Loss of finger injury claims have to show that you have sustained an injury which resulted in the loss of your finger and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a loss of finger injury can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party is responsible for the loss 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 loss of finger injury claim and, at a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from the damage to your hand, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do and should not be made a priority before you have come to terms with the loss of a finger.

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

How Much Loss of Finger Injury Compensation Will I Get?

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

As mentioned above, the consequences of your loss of a finger and the effect it has on your quality of life will also be taken into account when compiling a claim for loss of finger injury compensation. Along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks due to the missing digit, any quantifiable psychological consequences of the accident – for example any confidence issues you may have in the future – will also be integrated into your loss of finger injury claim for compensation.

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

“No Win, No Fee” Claims for a Loss of Finger Injury

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

However, not all solicitors offer “No Win, No Fee” claims for a loss of finger injury 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 loss of 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” claim for a loss of finger injury prior to accepting your case.
