Knowing how much compensation for loss of a finger is useful if you are considering speaking to a personal injury lawyer about a potential claim.
Like most other personal injury claims there is a sliding scale of compensation amounts depending on the severity of the injury. Figures for the range of injuries from fractures to amputation of fingers begin at £1,576 and go up to £26,280.
Your fingers allow you to grip, feel and clasp thanks to an array of nerve endings, tendons and ligaments. If any of these are damaged it can have significant consequences for the job you do and for everyday tasks you undertake.
If the accident you suffered was not your fault then the party who is responsible will be liable to pay your compensation
Fingers can be severed in road traffic accidents and this type of finger injury is often classed as a traumatic amputation.
Many finger loss injuries occur while at work, particularly for those employees who operate heavy machinery or work within the construction sector.
Other finger injuries may occur as a result of clinical negligence where a surgeon or medical practice has made an error. And you may be able to claim compensation.
In all of these instances, how much compensation for loss of a finger will depend largely on the extent of the damage.
