Finger Injury Compensation Amounts UK

Finger injuries can be debilitating, affecting one’s ability to work, perform daily tasks, and enjoy a good quality of life. From minor cuts and bruises to severe trauma resulting in amputation, finger injuries can vary significantly in their nature and impact.

Compensation aims to provide financial support to individuals who have suffered such injuries, helping them cover medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and other related damages.

If you are looking for finger injury compensation amounts UK, a professional solicitor from our team at Beacon Law can offer legal advice and guidance.

Types of finger injuries

The most common types of finger injuries include:

  • Finger Dislocation
  • Lacerations
  • Soft Tissue and Ligament Damage
  • Vibrating White Finger
  • Broken Finger
  • Fracturing Finger Bones
  • Full and partial amputations to one or multiple fingers
  • Burns to fingers
  • Crush injuries to fingers

The more severe the injury, the longer the recovery time will be. Injuries such as dislocations or minor breaks can heal after a short period of time. In contrast, crush injuries, multiple fractures, or ligament damage will take a long time to heal and may need further medical intervention, such as surgery. The severity of any finger injury, including which finger is affected will impact the amount of compensation you will be entitled to.

  • Minor (e.g. hairline fractures, minor scarring): Up to £4,750

If you have injured your finger due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. The amount of compensation awarded for your injuries will be based on the level of pain and suffering and loss of amenity as a result of the injury.

It is challenging to value a claim without knowing all the details of the injury. As many injuries are complex, especially those that are ongoing, it may be necessary to obtain a medical evaluation of your injuries before estimating the value.
