We understand the impact a broken hand or similar injury can have on your life – from preventing you working, hindering everyday tasks and stopping you doing the things you enjoy, such as sports or hobbies. Our hand injury claims solicitors will help you to adjust while we seek to secure you compensation.

How To Make A Hand Injury Claim

Call us on 0800 056 4110 and we’ll take you through a free initial consultation. We’ll ask you how the injury happened, who you believe is responsible, and how it’s affected your life.

If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.

If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.

Alongside your settlement, we can also help you access rehabilitation if needed. We can help you with many injuries, including:

  • A hand crush injury
  • Breaks and fractures
  • Occupational dermatitis
  • Digital injuries such as finger sprain
  • Repetitive strain
  • Burns
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Nerve damage
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Lacerations
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hand arm vibration syndrome
  • Amputation.

Hand injuries can vary tremendously from fairly minor, temporary issues to serious life-changing injuries. We understand the impacts these can have on your life and will help as much as we can with treatment and compensation.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Hand Injury Claim?

The standard time limits for hand injury claims are three years. These can either be from the date of the injury or the date you realised you were injured, for example, if a doctor diagnosed you with repetitive strain injury.  However, there are some exceptions, for example, criminal assault claims have a time limit of two years.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Hand Injury?

Many factors affect your settlement, so there are no pre-determined compensation amounts. Our claims specialists will assess:

  • The severity of the pain and damage
  • Inability to work or carry out daily tasks
  • Inability to carry out hobbies
  • Mental effects such as depression.

We’ll not only help you to claim for the initial damage, but also for any long-term effects your injury may have had, from rehabilitation to counselling.

No Win No Fee Hand Injury Claims

The majority of our hand injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay most of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from your total compensation.
