Hand and Finger Injuries from Traumatic Accidents
A person’s negligent mistakes may leave others affected with serious injuries, potentially including trauma to the hands or fingers. Although these injuries very rarely, if ever, pose a real threat to a person’s life, they can dramatically alter a person’s professional and personal aspirations. A considerable injury to the hand or fingers may leave a person unable to complete even basic tasks that require fine motor skills. Unfortunately, there are a variety of hand and finger injuries that can cause a person to suffer physically, emotionally, and financially.
Common Hand and Finger Traumas
When a person sustains an injury to their hand or their fingers, they may need immediate medical care to reduce the possibility of long-term complications. In particular, the following injuries may require substantial treatment:
- Severe lacerations, which often require stitches
- Broken bones
- Damage to finger or thumb joints
- Loss of skin, especially when due to burns
These health concerns can have severe consequences for an injured individual, often threatening their ability to quickly return to work after their initial treatment.
