Traumatic Hand and Finger Injuries
A dangerous accident may leave someone with significant injuries to their hand or fingers. These injuries often require emergency care, as it’s crucial to minimize the long-term complications that are likely to arise without prompt treatment. Additionally, as an injury to the hand or to the fingers may seriously impact a person’s everyday life and drastically affect what kind of work they are capable of doing on a regular basis, getting the necessary treatment for such injuries is critical.
Injuries to the Hands or Fingers after an Accident
An injury to the hand or fingers can considerably affect a person’s daily activities, whether professionally or personally. These injuries may include the following:
- Severe cuts or gashes, requiring stitches
- High infection risks for lacerations
- Broken bones
- Damage to digit joints
- Wrist injuries
- Extensive skin damage, including burn injuries
- Nerve damage
The consequences of a hand or finger injury can prove severe in many cases. Even relatively mild injuries may result in a significant recovery period that can render fine motor control difficult, making many jobs that require careful manual work hard, if not impossible, to complete. However, an injured individual may not have to shoulder the financial burdens of these injuries alone.
A hand or finger injury caused by someone else’s thoughtless actions may not only cause physical harm, but also financial. Fortunately, however, there may be compensation available to cover your medical costs, out-of-pocket expenses, and wages you’ve lost during treatment and recovery.
