Have you suffered a fingertip amputation due to negligence?

Suffering an injury or long-term illness as the result of an accident or illness that was not your fault can cause distress and have a massive impact on your ability to perform daily tasks and go about your life as it has always been. When this injury is in the form of the loss of a finger, you could be entitled to seek fingertip amputation compensation. This could help you to recalibrate your life and move forward with confidence, whilst receiving work compensation for finger amputation that covers the costs of any loss of earnings you have suffered, as well as other expenses and psychological damage relating to the injuries sustained.

The team at Hampson Hughes has vast experience of assisting individuals who have suffered accidents at work or other types of personal injury leading to the loss, or partial loss, of a finger. We understand how the process of partial finger amputation compensation works, and we’ll speak to you in-depth about your specific injuries and the accident or incident that led to those injuries. We are here to help you seek workplace injury compensation should you have suffered injury to your fingers or thumbs as a result of someone else’s negligence.

  • Who can you make Fingertip Amputation Compensation claims against?

    An amputation of a finger or thumb is usually undertaken as a result of severe trauma. Most cases that we see are linked to an accident at work, but in some cases it can be the result of injuries sustained in a car accident. Some amputations are also a necessity due to the potential spread of infection, where the finger or thumb can no longer be saved. This can have a huge impact on your everyday life, leading to a change in career, the inability to work at all in some cases, and the inability to perform previously mundane and everyday tasks.

    Alongside the physical pain associated with a finger injury caused in the workplace, and subsequent amputation, the psychological damage can be long-term, with extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation to undertake after the initial injury. This can cause long-term absence from work and the financial implications that come with it. Our fingertip amputation compensation solicitors know how to help you seek an award that will help you move forward with your life in the worst circumstances.

    If you have been injured due to an accident in the workplace, it could be because your employer has:

    • Failed to provide adequate safety training to all relevant staff members
    • Failed to maintain and secure machinery and equipment for safe use
    • Failed to provide warning signs about potential hazards relating to the workplace
    • Failed to provide adequate instruction and management leading to an incident

    In such these circumstances you may be entitled to make a claim for workplace injury compensation.

  • How Much Fingertip Amputation Compensation Can I Claim?

    Every claim is unique, but what we will do is conduct a thorough investigation into the incident itself and the injuries and amputation you have gone through as a result. Our aim is to pursue maximum compensation, but the award itself will depend on a range of factors, including:

    • The level of pain and suffering you have gone through
    • Loss of earnings and potential loss of earnings as a direct result of the injury
    • Inability to work
    • Care and rehabilitation requirements post amputation
    • Physiotherapy and therapy provisions required
    • Prosthetics and other lifestyle amendments required

    The amount of fingertip amputation compensation you could receive will also depend on the specific injury you have suffered. General figures for finger injuries and amputations are as follows:

    • Severe Fracture of a Finger: £24,000
    • Loss of an Index Finger: £12,250
    • Severe Injury to an Index Finger: £8,000 – £12,250
    • Fractured Index Finger: £6,000 – £8,000
    • Loss of Middle Finger: £10,250
    • Severe Injury to Middle Fingers: £9,750 – £10,750
    • Amputation of Tip of Middle or Ring Fingers: £2,500 – £5,150
    • Loss of Little Finger: £5,700 – £8,000
    • Partial Loss of Little Finger: £2,500 – £3,850
    • Loss of Little Finger and Ring Fingers: £14,350
    • Amputation of Tip of Middle and Index Fingers: £16,400
    • Fracture of Single Finger: £2,000 – £3,125

    A different set of compensation amounts are awarded for injuries and amputation to thumbs, and are as follows:

    • Loss of Thumb: £23,250 – £36,000
    • Very Severe Thumb Injury: £12,900 – £23,000
    • Severe Thumb Injury: £8,200 – £11,000
    • Moderate Thumb Injury: £6,300 – £8,250
    • Serious Dislocation: £2,600 – £4,450
    • Minor Thumb Injury: Maximum £2,600
  • Will It Cost me to Make a Claim for Partial Finger Amputation Compensation?

    The cost of making a claim for compensation might seem prohibitive and a stumbling block at first, but we are here to make sure you have all the help you need. Give our team a call and we can talk through all available funding options for you including any relevant insurance policies that will cover the cost of a legal claim. In the majority of cases we can act for you on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis in the form of a CFA (Conditional Fee Agreement). A CFA ensures that, should your claim for fingertip amputation compensation be unsuccessful, you will not pay a penny towards the associated costs.

  • Is There a Time Limit to Make a Fingertip Amputation Compensation Claim?

    As with all workplace injury compensation claims, or medical negligence and other forms of personal injury claims, you have three years in which to bring your claim. The three-year period begins from the date of the incident itself, or the date in which you discovered the injuries were linked to that incident (so in the case of partial fingertip amputation compensation it would be three years from the date of amputation). For accidents that have affected those under the age of 18, they have three years from the date of their 18th birthday in which to make a work injury compensation claim.

Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!
