Injured on the Job? How a Workers’ Comp Lawyer Can Help with Hand Injuries.

Hand Injury at Work How a Workers' Comp Lawyer Can Help | GN

Back and neck problems are the second most common cause of unemployment after hand injuries. Hand injuries sustained at work hinder regular duties in addition to causing discomfort. To reduce frustration and avoid becoming entangled in materials or machinery, it is imperative to ensure hand safety. Section 3384 of the California Labor Code requires the wearing of gloves and fire-prevention gel. If you suffered an injury at your workplace, the seasoned California workers’ compensation attorney at Gaylord & Nantais is here to help you in maximizing your workers’ compensation claim.

What factors affect workers’ compensation in California hand injury cases?

  • Dominant hand: Due to limited use and possible effects on job performance, injuries to your dominant hand may result in a higher settlement value. 
  • Your earnings: Pre-accident earnings are a key factor in determining settlement amounts in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. Your possible settlement value will reflect your financial situation before the injury and will increase with your income. 
  • Treatment duration: Indicating the severity of the damage and the need for surgical intervention in the compensation evaluation, the requirement for hand surgery raises the possibility of a higher settlement value.

If you are unable to return to your pre-injury work, you should be compensated more during workers’ comp finger injury settlement talks by keeping an injured on-the-job lawyer by your side.
  • Future healthcare: A hand injury that requires a lot of care, and therapies and thus medical expenses is associated with a larger settlement amount. This covers extra procedures, counseling, job training, house and car modifications, and prescription drugs—all essential components of the compensation evaluation.
