Finger Amputation Compensation Solicitors
We are expert finger amputation compensation solicitors and represent clients across England & Wales in claims for personal injury.
If you have suffered a finger amputation due to an accident at work then you may be entitled to claim compensation. We have over 20 years of experience in representing clients in claims against their negligent employers and during this time have won millions of pounds worth of compensation on their behalf.
All employers owe their staff a duty of care to ensure their working environment is safe, so if they fail in their duty to maintain machinery, provide you with training and correct PPE and to carry out risk assessments of your tasks and you have been seriously injured as a result, they may be deemed negligent and you may be able to claim against their Employers Liability Insurance.
We offer all new enquiries a free and no obligation initial consultation to discuss the merits of a potential claim and fund all new claims using No Win No Fee Agreements.

Specialist solicitors fighting your corner
We understand how difficult it can be recovering from a finger amputation injury and how stressful it can be to come to terms with the severity of this type of injury.
Our team of lawyers have many years of experience in representing clients who have had a finger and/or a thumb amputated, often in accidents at work involving unguarded or dangerous machines.
Some of the most common types of finger injuries at work include:
- Loss and amputation of fingers and thumbs caused by large and dangerous machinery
- Serious lacerations which lead to amputation caused by accidents involving handheld machinery such as chainsaws, drills, bandsaws, breakers, storage cages and warehouse vehicles
- Degloving type injuries to hands and fingers which ultimately lead to amputations
If the accident that led to your injury is not listed above do not worry, we can still advise you on the prospects of a potential claim. Contact us today by calling 01507 609027.
How much does it cost to make a finger amputation claim?
One of the most common misconceptions about starting a new claim is the requirement to pay us an upfront fee to start your claim, however this couldn’t be further from the truth.
We do not charge any of our new clients any upfront fees to start a personal injury claim.
We fund all of our compensation claims using Conditional Fee Agreements. These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee agreement”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
For more information about No Win No Fee agreements or to start your claim, contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today by calling 01507 609027.
How much compensation can I claim for a serious finger amputation claim?
All finger amputation claims for compensation are different and the amount of compensation you may expect to receive depends on the severity of your injuries.
All successful personal injury claims will include two main elements:
- Compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering
- “Special Damages” for any lost earnings, past, present and future as a result of the accident
So, how much compensation can I claim?
Every work related finger injury is different, each with its own set of legal challenges so it is difficult for us to provide you with an exact valuation of your claim on the phone, especially if your accident has led to you being unable to work as a result.
The amount of compensation you can claim is based on a set of national guidelines and some example claim amounts set out below are based on these Judicial College Guidelines, with the latest set being published at the end of 2019.
- Severe injury that leads to all fingers being lost or amputated – £82,040 to £93,540
- Severe injuries where the hand has had index, middle or ring fingers amputated leaving little or no use – £52,810 to £77,430
- Injuries that have led to several fingers amputated – £24,740 – £52,810
- Injuries that have caused fingers to be severely fractured and lead to loss of dexterity and impairment of grip – up to £31,350
- Serious injury that leads to the loss of a thumb – £28,310 to £43,710
- Finger fracture which leads to a loss of grip function and dexterity – £10,380 – 15,990
*The figures quoted here are illustrative and your potential claim may be worth more or less.
In addition to compensation for pain and suffering, we are also able to help you claim for “special damages”.
These damages include any loss of past and future earnings, your pensions and medical care.
In cases that involve finger or thumb amputations, future loss of earnings claims tend to be higher than with other non-amputation related finger and hand injuries. You may be at a disadvantage in the labour market once you have recovered from your injuries, so we may be able to secure you a greater compensation award as a result.
Special damages often make up a very large percentage of the total claim value and in some cases can increase the value of a claim to several hundred thousand pounds.
