You don’t realize how much you use your hands until you injure one of them. Simple things we do every day without a second thought like cutting food on a plate, holding a comb or a brush, tying a shoe lace, or typing on a computer or cell phone keyboard can become difficult or impossible after a hand injury.
Whether the hand or wrist is punctured, sliced, or crushed, the result can be serious. A person who suffers nerve damage may have a permanent loss of feeling and function in their hand and may no longer be able to do a job or hobby they love. Tendon injuries are usually less serious. Tendon injuries may need surgical repair and in extreme cases can cause a permanent loss of dexterity and strength in the hand.
At Bode & Collins, P.L.C., we have experience handling hand injury cases. If you have suffered a hand injury in Arizona because of the negligence of another person, call Bode & Collins, P.L.C. today at 480.355.5020. We are here to help.
What Kinds of Money Damages Might You Be Entitled To?
Under Arizona law, a person who suffers a bodily injury because of the negligence of another person may claim money damages for:
- Medical Expenses
- Anticipated Future Medical Expenses (e.g. surgeries, prosthetics etc.)
- Emotional Pain and Suffering Caused by the Negligence
- Lost Earnings
- Future Lost Income
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
There is no formula that will predict how much your claim is worth or guarantee that you will win at trial. The value of a claim depends on case-specific factors. The nature and extent of the injury, the venue the claim is brought, the credibility and likeability of the injured person and the wrongdoer, and the skill of legal counsel are all factors in play.
