How Much Compensation for a Broken Finger?

If you have suffered a broken finger as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. The accident should have occurred within the last 3 years.

The fingers are one of the easiest areas of the body to break due to the amount of time they are in use. A broken finger can potentially have a major impact on a person’s quality of life depending on the type of break and whether or not they will fully recover from the injury. Contact us to discuss what has happened to you.
