Our hands are often taken for granted by many of us; we do not consider how essential our hands are to our everyday activities. Hands, however, are prone to a variety of injuries. Hand injuries can vary in severity, but they are likely to hinder victims’ quality of life. Did you sustain a hand injury? If you suffered a hand injury, you might have grounds to file a lawsuit and receive compensation.

Have you considered the possibility of filing a claim against the party that caused your hand injuries? If so, you might have many of the following questions:

  • Could victims of hand injuries sue and receive compensation?
  • How much compensation could victims recover?
  • How much is a hand injury case worth?
  • What is the average value of a hand fracture case?

If you have asked yourself any of the questions listed above, you might benefit from discussing your claim with an experienced attorney. To meet with an attorney experienced in broken hand claims, you must contact Kenmore Law Group as soon as possible. Kenmore Law Group is a personal injury law firm dedicated to fighting for the rights of all victims of personal injury accidents. The attorneys at Kenmore Law Group have spent many years helping injured victims fight for their right to be compensated. Our firm represents victims of a variety of injuries, including hand injuries. If you suffered a hand injury in a personal injury accident, you must contact our law firm as soon as possible to discuss your incident and your injuries with our experienced lawyers.

How Much is a Broken Hand Injury Case Worth?

A broken hand injury could be worth anywhere from $70,000 to $640,000 (or more) depending on the severity of the fracture. The value of your injury case also depends on a variety of other details besides the physical injury. Consider the following factors that could affect the value of your broken hand injury claim:

  • The severity of your injury: injuries range in severity: In general, minor injuries could be worth up to $25,000. Minor injuries might be sprains, strains, or lacerations, for example. In general, minor injuries require minimum treatment and recovery time. Moderate injuries could be worth up to $75,000. Moderate injuries often require some sort of surgical procedure to treat. Some fractures could require surgical treatment. As the severity of the injuries increase, the value associated with an injury also increases. Some severe hand injuries could leave victims with limited or complete loss of hand mobility and function.
  • The income that you lost because of your injury: If you lost income because of your hand injury, the average value of a broken hand case might increase by the income that you lost. Your lost income is likely to be calculated based on your wage history and the time that you were unable to work. If you are permanently unable to work, the value of your claim is likely to be higher than that of a victim who is only temporarily unable to work.
  • Your contribution to your injury: the value of your claim could be affected by your contribution to your accident and your injuries or your comparative negligence. Comparative negligence applies when the victim’s actions contributed to the injuries suffered. Comparative negligence establishes the percentage of the value of your claim that you could receive. For instance, if you are found to be 20% negligent, you could only receive 80% of your award.
  • The insurance policy limit that might apply: depending on the type of accident that led to your injury, you might have grounds to file a claim against the liable party’s insurance company. If so, your claim might be subject to a policy limit (the maximum amount of compensation that you could recover). In some cases, low policy limits could prevent claimants from recovering the full value of their claims.

In addition to the factors listed above, other details could also affect the value of your claim. For instance, if you are left-handed and you suffered a broken right hand, your lifestyle and your ability to continue your normal way of life might not be affected. However, if you suffered a fracture of the left hand (being left-handed), your claim can be worth more than if your non-dominant hand was injured. Likewise, if you are right-handed and you suffer a broken left hand, your claim can be worth less than if you had suffered a fracture of the right hand. In general, any time your dominant hand is compromised, the value of your claim is likely to increase. If you would like to learn more about the details that could affect the value of your claim, do not hesitate to contact our law firm as soon as possible.

What is the Average Settlement for a Fractured Hand Case?

The average settlement for a fractured hand case is approximately $600,000, but it can vary significantly based on the details of a claim. As mentioned above, there are many factors that could affect the average payout for a broken hand claim. Because every claim is different, it is difficult to establish an average amount. Consider the following hand injury and hand fracture settlement amounts:

  • $22,500—the victim was involved in an auto accident which resulted in a strained hand.
  • $80,000—the victim suffered a car accident which resulted in a broken wrist.
  • $377,000—the victim suffered a fall which resulted in a broken wrist.
  • $390,000—the victim suffered a motorcycle accident which resulted in a variety of injuries. One of the injuries suffered (and perhaps the most severe injury) included a thumb fracture that required extensive treatment.
  • $1.05 million—the victim was involved in a fight in which a party bit the tip of the victim’s finger off. The injury required multiple surgeries to address.
  • $1.6 million—the victims were attacked while shopping in a recognized store. They suffered stab wounds to their hands which resulted in scars and lessened hand function.

As you can see, the sample settlements and verdicts listed above vary significantly. Because of that, you should never base your expected settlement for a broken hand lawsuit on past settlements and verdicts. The outcomes of past claims depend on many factors that are claim-specific; therefore, expecting to recover similar amounts could be misleading. If you would like the details of your claim to be thoroughly evaluated by an experienced hand injury attorney, you must contact our law firm as soon as possible. Only a knowledgeable attorney could provide you with information regarding the estimated value of your claim.

How much Can You Receive If Your Hand was Broken in an Accident?

As mentioned above, you could receive approximately $50,000 to $600,000 or more for your claim. Are you entitled to receive that amount? The amount of hand injury compensation that you receive will depend on the specific details of your claim; therefore, we recommend that you meet with our attorneys as soon as possible. Although it is not possible to establish the amount of compensation that you could receive before you meet with an attorney, you could familiarize yourself with some of the categories of compensation that might apply to your claim. Some of the most common types of compensation available for recovery include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

If you would like to learn more regarding the hand injury compensation that you might be eligible to receive, you must contact our hand injury lawyers to further discuss your claim. You could trust that our specialized attorneys will always fight for your right to recover the maximum amount of compensation available for your claim. Our lawyers will consistently negotiate until a reasonable settlement is reached. We will not hesitate to deny lowball offers and take the claim to trial.
