What Compensation Is Available For Hand Injuries?
In 2005, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, hand injuries, which include finger and wrist injuries, accounted for 23 percent of injuries that caused an individual to lose a day of work.
When another party’s negligence or misconduct caused your hand injury, lost wages and other damages can be recovered including:
- Diminished earning capacity
- Mental and physical suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Related medical bills, including hospital costs, medication expenses, doctor fees, required surgery, and prosthetics, in the event of amputation.
Do Hand Injuries Require Amputations?
Partial hand amputations are the most common amputations performed. Many hand injuries requiring finger amputation stem from a workplace related injury. While a company may lose valuable production time, your hand injury may cost you vital income necessary to maintain your family.
Even if your hand injury did not necessitate amputation, fractures require long periods of recovery and the viability and production level of your hand may never be the same.
