Cut Finger Injury Claims
Information about Cut Finger Injury Claims
Cut finger injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have suffered an injury to your finger in an accident for which somebody else was primarily to blame. Irrespective of how your injury was sustained, by making a successful claim for a cut finger injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time your injury occurred, the effect that the injury has had on your quality of life and any financial consequences of being incapacitated due to a cut finger injury.
Establishing Your Eligibility to Make Cut Finger Injury Claims
Cut finger injury claims have to show that you have sustained a quantifiable finger injury and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you sustained a cut finger can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party is responsible for the cause of the injury through their negligent actions – or lack of actions – can often be more difficult.
Police reports or accident reports may need to be compiled and evidence gathered in support of your cut finger injury claim and, at a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from the damage to your finger, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do – and should not be made a priority before you have recovered from your injured finger.
Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making cut finger injury claims for compensation with a solicitor as soon as practically possible. A solicitor will assess your claim for a cut finger injury, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your cut finger injury claim and advise you if you have a claim for cut finger injury compensation which is worth your while to pursue.
How Much Cut Finger Injury Compensation Will I Get?
How much compensation for a cut finger injury you will be entitled to receive will depend on your personal circumstances. A solicitor will calculate the value of your cut finger injury claim by considering the severity and extent of the injury in relation to your age and general state of health prior to your accident.
As mentioned above, the consequences of the trauma you experienced and the effect it has on your quality of life will also be taken into account when compiling a claim for cut finger injury compensation. Along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while recovering from your damaged finger, any quantifiable psychological consequences of the accident – for example any confidence issues you may have in the future – will also be integrated into your cut finger injury claim for compensation.
You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to your accident when making a claim for cut finger injury compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical treatment following your accident, to additional transport costs while you are unable to drive due to your damaged finger. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for cut finger injury compensation – including overtime and pension contributions.
“No Win, No Fee” Claims for a Cut Finger Injury
Provided that your solicitor believes there is a strong likelihood of your claim for cut finger injury compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your cut finger injury claim on a “No Win, No Fee” basis. This usually means that, should you lose your claim for cut finger injury compensation, you will not owe your solicitor for their legal fees and, when your cut finger injury claim is successful, you will retain 100 percent of your compensation settlement.
However, not all solicitors offer “No Win, No Fee” claims for a cut finger injury on the same basis, and it may be necessary for you to take out an insurance policy to protect yourself from potential financial exposure should your claim for cut finger injury compensation be unsuccessful and you become liable for the defendant´s legal costs. Your solicitor should explain the exact terms and conditions of a “No Win, No Fee” claim for a cut finger injury prior to accepting your case.
