Finger & Toe Injury Compensation Claims
Unsurprisingly injuries to the fingers and toes are commonplace when we look at work accidents in the UK. If anything we would suggest that the statistics are in fact under reported as minor incidents, or so called “near misses”, often go unrecorded. Time and time again we hear clients tell us that a machine or piece of equipment hasn’t worked properly for weeks or months and that co-workers have had bangs or bumps as a result but crucially nothing has been done about it – until a more serious injury occurs and it is only then that everyone wishes they had done something sooner.
As with the majority of work place accidents, a significant number of finger and toe injuries we assist with both could and should have been avoided. While no two accidents are ever the same we do nevertheless hear similar stories on a daily basis:-
- Poor training, or sometimes even no training at all.
- Trying to lift items that are too heavy or bulky without the proper equipment or assistance.
- Old or damaged machinery and tools.
- Colleagues messing around.
- Handling chemicals or hot items/liquids.
- Cuts and puncture wounds.
- Lack of or inadequate PPE.
The above list is not exhaustive so rest assured that our experienced team of solicitors may be able to help you no matter the cause of your finger or toe injuries. Even if you think that your injury is relatively minor, please don’t be the one who does nothing about it and wishes they had once someone – perhaps even you – loses a finger or a toe later down the line.
