Common types of hand injuries in factories
Due to our vast experience in serious personal injury claims, our team of solicitors have advised clients on a wide range of different hand injuries that have taken place in factories across England & Wales.
Some of the most common types of injuries associated with construction site claims include:
- De-gloving type injuries to hands caused by conveyor belts, large machinery and guillotines i
- Serious lacerations and total loss of fingers and hands due to dangerous or faulty machinery
- Serious hand injury caused by being struck by moving vehicles including FLT’s
- Fractured hands due to crushing and squashing related accidents
- Hand injuries caused by tripping, slipping and falling related accidents
The very nature of factories and warehouses means that there are lots of dangerous and hazardous activities taking place all around you that could potentially lead to serious accidents and injury.
If the accident that has caused your hand injury is not listed above do not worry, we can still advise you on a potential claim. Call us now on 01507 609027 to speak with our solicitors.
How much does it cost to claim?
We do not charge our clients any upfront fees to start a claim.
All of our hand injury in a factory claims are funded using Conditional Fee Agreements, which are also commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee agreement”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms shoulder 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.
Our other fees are mostly paid by the insurers that provide your employer with their Employers Liability Insurance, not them personally.
If you have questions about how a No Win No Fee agreement works or if you would like to start your hand injury claim now, call us on 01507 609027.
What can I claim for?
All personal injury claims take into account your pain and suffering of your injuries, if you require any long term care and whether you have suffered financial losses as a result of not being able to work.
Work related hand injury claims may include compensation for the following:
- Compensation for your hand injuries and pain and suffering
- “Special Damages” for any lost earnings, past, present and future as a result of the accident
How much is my claim worth?
Every hand injury claim is different and the amount of compensation you may receive will vary depending on the severity of your injury and your financial losses, however compensation awards for personal injury claims are based on a set of national guidelines called the Judicial College Guidelines.
The latest set of guidelines were published at the end of 2019 and some example guideline amounts for hand injuries are set out below:
- Severe hand injury that results in the loss or loss of use of one or both hands – £76,650 to £189,110
- Severe injuries where the hand has had index, middle or ring fingers amputated leaving little use – £58,100 to £85,170
- Serious injuries that leads to loss of function in one or both hands – £52,310 to £79,360
- Serious injury that leads to the loss of a thumb – £28,310 to £43,710
- Less serious hand injuries whereby the hand is crushed which leads to impaired function – £13,570 to £27,220
- Moderate hand injury that includes penetrating wound, deep lacerations or crushing injuries that has permanent symptoms – £5,260 to £12,460
*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. Special damages often make up a very large percentage of the total claim value and in some circumstances can amount to millions of pounds.
