Around 10% of all Accident and Emergency Hospital admissions are for hand injuries. Although they are not a vital organ like the heart or lungs, our hands are extremely critical to our everyday living tasks. If a hand injury has prevented you from working, then hand injury compensation may be able to help you financially. The hand is an extremely complex organ consisting of some 27 bones. These bones are surrounded by a network of ligaments, nerves, muscles and cartilage. It is because of this complexity that the variety of hand injuries is so high. They can cause symptoms ranging from discomfort and soreness, through broken and fractured bones, and in some cases unfortunately amputation is necessary. If you have suffered a hand injury then you may be eligible to claim compensation through making hand injury claims.

We rely on our hands and arms for so many tasks and for everyday living. It is for this reason that we should take care of them as best we can. This means that if we suffer a hand injury, we should seek medical attention for it straight away. Medical professionals can treat the injury and advise on rehabilitation and physiotherapy if needed. Hand injury compensation is available to those whose life has suffered as the result of an injury. There are many ways to suffer a hand injury. These vary from car accidents to slipping and falling. They can even happen through an accident at work, or through an industrial illness – such as vibration white finger or carpal tunnel syndrome. In these cases it is an employer’s responsibility to protect its employees. If they don’t, they leave themselves open to hand injury claims.
Below is a list of common hand injury types:
- Fractures and breaks
- Lacerations and contusions
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Vibration white finger
Fractures and breaks – Fractures and breaks to bones in the hand and wrist are common injuries. They are frequently sustained in slips, falls and accidents at work. They are common features of hand injury claims.
Lacerations and contusions – Cuts and bruises to the hand can result in hand injury claims if the injuries are serious enough. If the lacerations go deep enough they can cause muscle and nerve damage and result in hand injury compensation.
Carpal tunnel syndrome - Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause harm to the hand muscles due to restricted blood flow to the median nerve in the wrist. It is a common industrial condition caused by excessive use of the wrist.
Vibration white finger - Vibration white finger can cause pain, numbness and discolouration of the hand and fingers. It is caused by excessive use of vibrating machinery.
