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 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
|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|
