Injuries to the hands are inconvenient at best and at worst, devastating. They are one of the most common types of body injury as our hands are in frequent use throughout the day. In the workplace, our hands are vital to do our jobs easily so an injury can make our roles incredibly difficult to carry out. This can include injuries to the nails, fingers and the wrists as well.
If you have suffered an injury to any part of your hands or wrists in the workplace that wasn’t your fault and has resulted in an inability to carry out life as easily as normal, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
At Injury Lawyers UK we have a team of experienced lawyers who have a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to accidents occurred in the workplace. We understand how stressful hand injuries can be to you and your family and will do everything we can to secure compensation if we feel there is a case.
Types of Hand Injury
Hand are complex organs involving multiple ligaments, nerves, tendons and joints. Therefore, the range of injuries a person can incur may affect any of these elements.
The main categories of hand injury are:
● High pressure injuries
● Soft tissue injuries
In the workplace, these injuries are often caused by trauma or from excessive use. Employers have a duty to implement health and safety procedures that protect their workforce and any visitors on their premises. This includes protection within reason from a risk of injury caused by falls, dangerous practices, insufficient training, unsafe manual handling and operating dangerous machinery.
Am I Eligible for Compensation?

At Injury Lawyers UK we can assess your potential claim and outline your options for starting legal proceedings if we think you have a case. We always aim to claim for the maximum amount of compensation available to you and this not only takes into consideration the emotional trauma and stress you have experienced but also the financial costs.
