Hand and Finger Injuries

Got your hand trapped or your finger crushed? Is your wrist or are the joints in your knuckle aching? You only need to pick up an injury in your hand or your fingers to realise that often, hurting the smallest parts of our body can cause the most acute pain. Our fingers are delicate, sensitive tools that we use not only for holding things, but for sensory functions, non-verbal communication and a host of other uses throughout our days, often without consciously undertaking those tasks. If you have injured your hand or your fingers and you think it was due to someone else’s negligence, contact the specialist solicitors at Jones Whyte today and we can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

What Injuries can you Claim for with Personal Injury Solicitors in Glasgow, Scotland?

Whether you hurt your hand or your fingers at work, or through someone else’s negligence when you were carrying out a task or a hobby that you enjoy, damage to your hands and fingers can have a detrimental effect on you. For instance, injuries you could have picked up include:

  • Cuts and abrasions, or other incisions, which could have been deep enough to affect your ligaments, tendons and muscles, causing weakness or numbness or limited movement.
  • Fracture or dislocation of any of the complex structure of bones in the hands and fingers, which can occur in crash or crush-type scenarios.
  • Soft tissue injuries, such as bruises, sprains or muscle contusions, which can cause swelling, tenderness, weakness or numbness.
  • Burning or scarring.
