Compensation for Loss of Finger

Is it true that how much compensation for loss of finger you receive is not affected by whether you lose part of your finger or the whole finger?

Question:

Is it true that how much compensation for loss of finger you receive is not affected by whether you lose part of your finger or the whole finger?

Answer:

How much compensation for loss of finger you receive is dependable on many more influences rather than just the extent of your injury.

The first factors that a solicitor will consider when compiling a claim for loss of finger compensation are your age, gender and general state of health prior to the accident which resulted in the loss of a finger. A young working woman in good health is going to receive more compensation for loss of finger than an elderly man with a terminal disease – irrespective of the extent of the injury or which finger has been lost.

Furthermore, the effect that the loss of the finger has on your ability to work and how it affects your quality of life will also be considered in a claim for compensation for loss of finger, along with any quantifiable emotion trauma that has been sustained and financial costs associated with seeking medical treatment.

Another factor that may integrated into a loss of finger compensation claim is whether you contributed by your own lack of care to either the accident which caused the injury or the severity of the injury. This “contributory negligence” can have a significant impact on how much compensation for loss of finger you are entitled to receive.

To ensure you receive a fair and appropriate amount of compensation for loss of finger, you are advised to discuss the circumstances of your injury with a personal injury solicitor and have an assessment made of your entitlement to compensation for loss of finger. Only then will you know whether you have a loss of finger injury compensation claim which is worth your while to pursue and how much loss of finger compensation you may be entitled to.
