Injuries to the hand result from common accidents at work. Losing the use of your hand, even for just a short period of time, can be disabling to your work capabilities and can compromise your personal life.
Much like injuries at work that affect the back and the neck, hand injuries often are accompanied by a lot of pain. People working in nearly any industry are susceptible to hand injuries, particularly those that involve the construction trades, manufacturing jobs, and within the health care industries.
Injuries can be serious such as breaking fingers or bones of the hand through daily job duties or more severe, long-term injuries can occur including getting a hand caught in heavy machinery. Whatever the nature of the injury, the loss of normal use of your hand can be devastating for any amount of time. If a hand injury will result in a long-term or permanent loss of use can be detrimental to your financial and physical well-being.
Hand injuries incurred through accidents at work can cost you income and must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis to ensure you are compensated correctly. Without proper knowledge of hand injury compensation cases, you can be at a loss when it comes to making sure you are protected for the future.
