Trapped Finger Injury
Finger injuries can be caused by many factors though health and safety precautions being wrongly followed in the workplace is one of the most common causes.
Finger injuries tend to occur in manual work, sport, trips, slips and falls or due to trapped fingers in doors, machinery, equipment etc.
If you’ve suffered an injury to the finger which wasn’t your fault, you’re eligible to file a compensation claim.
Trapped finger injuries can cause issues in-fitting with the following categories:
Avulsion describes an injury where the skin or finger tissue has torn. This can be administered when ones suffered from a trapped finger. If you’ve suffered from an avulsion finger injury which wasn’t your fault, you’re eligible to file a compensation claim.
Laceration cuts vary in severity from a small cut which slightly breaks the skin to deeper cuts which can sometimes cause nerve, tendon or blood vessel damage. Injuries of this nature can occur following a trapped finger in the workplace or in a situation which wasn’t your fault. If you’ve suffered a laceration finger injury, you may be entitled to compensation: contact Tyler’s Solicitors today for more information.
- Fingernail injuries
Trapped fingers commonly cause injuries to the fingernail and the tissue beneath the fingernail. In some cases, depending on the severity of the injury, the bone beneath the finger nail may have been damaged causing much pain to the sufferer. If you’ve suffered a finger nail injury, it’s likely you’re entitled to file a compensation claim.
Fingers are made up of sensitive bones intricately placed in the skeletal frame. Fractures to the fingernails can be common if you’re subjected a trapped finger injury.
Finger amputation occurs in the rarer cases of trapped finger injuries. This occurs when a part of your fingers tissue, or the bone is dislocated at the time of injury or when the injury is so severely damaged, the organ is irreplaceable.
Tendons are the tissues attaching muscle to the skeletal bones. Tendon damage can occur following a trapped finger injury as the finger may be crushed or cut. If you’ve suffered tendon damage due to the finger and it wasn’t your fault, let us here at Tyler’s Solicitors guide you through the compensation process.
Dislocation injuries often occur in the fingers and can come following finger trapping. Dislocation injuries can occur following a trapped finger injury. Dislocated joints is where the injury causes the bone to move out of its normal alignment with the bone sockets, injuries of this nature often cause ligament damage too.
- Ligament injuries (sprains)
Ligament injuries occur when the tissue holding the bones in place to form a joint becomes damaged. Ligament damage tends to occur following bone dislocation, when this occurs the ligaments stretch and often remain damaged once the dislocated area is reconnected.
- Nerve Injuries
In your fingers, there are two nerves which run alongside each; which is what gives us feeling in our fingers. Nerve damage can occur following a trapped injury which is very difficult to fix. If you’ve suffered nerve damage to the fingers, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact Tyler’s Solicitors today for more information and let us, help you.
