How Much Compensation For Hand Injuries

The hands are considered to be important in terms of function and appearance. If you are wondering how much compensation for hand injuries you could be entitled to then the answer is that this depends on the individual circumstances, but it is at the higher end of the compensation scale in many cases.

Bear in mind that factors such as whether or not your dominant hand has been affected, the overall level of pain and suffering experienced and how personal amenity has been limited are all considered before a compensation amount is decided.

Level of injury

Potential compensation

A complete loss of function of both hands 112,100 up to £160,600
Permanent cosmetic disability and serious loss of function in the hands £44,550 up to £67,410
Loss of hand or loss of use of one hand. If your dominant hand has been affected, your compensation will be at the higher end or this bracket £76,650 and £87,410
Amputation of the fingers £49,350 up to £72,330
Cases where there has been approximately 50% reduction in the volume of the hand. £23,110 to £49,350
Crushing accidents that have caused some degree of function loss and your injury is deemed ‘less serious’ £11,520 and £23,110
Minor hand injuries that see a full recovery within a few months £730 up to £3,460

HOW DOES THE CLAIMS PROCESS WORK?

At Jefferies Solicitors, once we have carried out an initial consultation, we will take care of the paperwork required to get your case underway.

A letter will be sent to you following an initial consultation with your solicitor. This will be a summary of the discussion you had and will confirm that they are happy to take on your case. It will highlight who will be your contact and estimate how long the process will take. The letter will also detail how you will be funding the case and an estimate of costs. If you need to provide any further information this will also be included.

A letter will then be sent to the defendant, providing details of the accident. The defendant has a fixed period in which they can reply and in their reply, they must state whether or not they are denying or accepting liability for your injuries. If they do accept liability, your solicitor will endeavour to settle the case out of court.

HOW MUCH COMPENSATION FOR HAND INJURIES

All personal injury cases are unique and so the amount of compensation that is awarded in each case is also unique. The amount of compensation that is awarded is determined by looking at two distinct factors – general damages and special damages.

GENERAL DAMAGES

The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical examination, from which a report is created that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.

Our compensation calculator gives an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries. Jefferies Solicitors will take these different details relating to your injury into account when calculating how much compensation you should be awarded, which will then be put forward to the opposing side and the judge.

SPECIAL DAMAGES

However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Therefore, you should keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses, as caused by your accident/injuries.

Except for children, there is a three-year time limit on making a personal injury claim. This time limit begins from the date that the accident occurred. You should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to assess your case.
