Hand injuries are a lot less common than say a neck, back or shoulder injury but the consequences of injuring your hands can be extremely serious.

Injury may take the form of a simple sprain following a fall or car accident through to more serious crush injuries sustained in the workplace.

Impact of a hand injury

We take our hands for granted, but if you stop to think about it your hands are used for almost every everyday task you can think of.

The consequences of a hand injury may mean that you can lose a period of time away from work, or in the worst case scenario you may never work again. You may not be able to take care of your personal needs such as washing, dressing and cooking and you may need to make adaptations to your home and lifestyle.

Our specialist team will be able to advise you as to the merits of your claim and then instruct relevant experts to prepare reports on your injury to allow us to assess what your claim is worth and what your rehabilitation needs are in relation to gaining function back in the hand, if appropriate getting you back in to the work place and trying to return your life back to normal.

Time limit to make a claim

You generally have three years from the date of accident to bring a claim, although there are a few exceptions which our legal team will be able to advise you upon.
