Wrist and Hand Injury Compensation Claims Southampton
Some of the most common personal injury claims that we deal with as solicitors are injuries to the wrist, hand, and fingers. Injuries like this can occur in a wide variety ways including accidents at work, in car crashes, road traffic accidents, assaults, and slips in public places.
Establishing Fault for a Claim
What we do in order to proceed with a successful injury compensation claim is identify who was at fault for the accident. If there is evidence to support the fact that the incident occurred to someone else’s fault or the negligence of a third party such as council, business, or employer then we can in most cases claim compensation.
