Amount of Compensation

In order to promote consistency and assist the courts, personal injury solicitors and other advisers, the Judicial Studies Board publish a set of guidelines for the level of injury awards for a broad range of injuries. The information, which follows, has been taken from those guidelines. Whilst the guidelines are very useful and provide a good general indicator of the level of damages which may be paid, it should be remembered that no two cases are ever the same and general damage claims for injuries resulting from accidents will always reflect the individual circumstances of the particular in dividual and the injuries he or she has suffered and claims will be assessed accordingly.

 

Accidents Leading to Finger Injury Claims

The level of compensation payments following accidents resulting in claims for finger injuries depends on a number of factors not least of which are the particular finger injured, the position at which it was injured and whether there is complete recovery.

Where there are serious finger fractures resulting in partial amputations, deformity, reduction in gripping ability and the function of the finger is seriously affected, claims may be paid up to 19,000. The total loss of an index finger may attract a compensation award of about 10,000 whereas claims for the partial loss of an index finger may be compensated by payments in the region 6,250 to 9,250. The fracture of an index finger could be expected to attract a compensation award in the region 4,750 to 6,250. Where an accident victim suffers the total loss of a middle finger, personal injury compensation awards should be in the region of 8000. In claims where there are serious injuries to the ring or middle fingers, which have perhaps been broken, and, although they have healed, there is a reduction in function and grip, personal injury compensation may be paid between 7,750 and 8,500.

Where the little finger is amputated, one would expect claims to be settled for between 4,500 and 6,250 but where only a part of the little finger is lost compensation awards would be in the region of between 2,000 and 3,000.

To make a claim either call Accident Aid on 0800 180 4780 or forward your query without any obligation to Accident Aid by email and you will be contacted by an accident injury lawyer who will advise as to whether you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injury and any other losses you may have sustained.
