Injuries Caused by Negligence

There are several different types of hand injury. The main two categories are repetitive stress injuries and traumatic injuries. Traumatic injuries are injuries caused by a forceful trauma to the hand, such as lacerations, bruising, contusions, broken bones, or fractures. Trauma to a hand can be caused by many different types of accidents. One of the more common causes of traumatic hand injuries is a mechanical failure of machinery. Workers who use machinery on a regular basis run the risk of getting their hands caught or crushed in machinery that is malfunctioning. Hand trauma also comes in the form of strained ligaments in the hand.

These can be caused by a slip and fall, when a victim puts their hands out to brace themselves and their hands strike the ground. It is also often caused by car accidents. When a driver is involved in a car accident, their hands are usually on the steering wheel. The fingers, especially thumbs, can be twisted against the steering wheel with intense pressure, causing serious ligament damage or broken bones. If you have experienced any type of hand trauma in any kind of accident, you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries through a personal injury lawsuit. A NY hand injury lawyer can help you file a claim.

The second major type of hand injury is a repetitive stress injury. Repetitive stress injuries are the result of continual stress on the hand from the repetition of a movement. Repetitive stress can be the result of typing, assembling, moving, or any other type of repetitive movement. Carpal tunnel occurs when a nerve in the wrist is impinged, and causes pain and numbness in the hand. Other repetitive stress injuries include tendonitis, arthritis, and trigger finger. If you have developed a repetitive stress injury in the course of your employment, you may be able to file a workers’ compensation claim to compensate you for your pain and suffering.
