What can you claim for?
All thumb related injury claims 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. This will take into account if your injuries have a detrimental effect on your future employment opportunities
The amount of compensation you can claim
Again, the actual amount of financial compensation you may expect to claim varies from claim to claim and depends on a number of factors including the type of injury you have sustained, the severity of your injuries, how long you take to recover and if you incurred any financial losses such as loss of earnings as a result of the accident.
The actual amount that you are able to claim for your pain and suffering is based on a set of national guidelines and fall into different bands.
The amounts set out below are based on figures published in the 15th edition of the Judicial College Guidelines for the assessment of damages in personal injury cases, published in November 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. Special damages often make up a very large percentage of the total claim value and in some circumstances can amount to millions of pounds.
