Each of our hands contain 27 bones, which includes the wrist; when you think of this as well as the number of nerves, arteries, veins, muscles, tendons, ligaments and joint cartilage that our hands contain you can start to see that an accident involving your hand can leave you suffering severe injury.
Due to the structure of your hand even the slightest damage to the underlying aspects such as damage to your muscles, tendons etc can cause harm and disability that can lead to long term effects and very substantial hand injuries.
There are many ways in which you can suffer from a hand injury such as a road traffic accident, slip, trip or fall, work place accident or a sports related accident. Any of these could leave you with severe injury to your hand and in many cases these hand injuries occur through no fault of your own.
If you are one of the 10% of people who end up in Accident & Emergency after suffering from an accident, such as the ones named above, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation, in which case we can help you here at Help With Your Claim.
