How much can I claim for?
The amount of compensation you can claim depends on several different factors including the type of injury you have sustained, the severity of your injury, how long you take to recover and if you suffered any other financial losses such as loss of earnings as a result of the accident.
The amount of compensation you could expect to receive for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries 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.
Every claim is different so we recommend you contact us now to discuss your personal circumstances by calling 01507 609027.
