A hand or wrist injury can happen in several ways, such as when a person:
- Tries to break a fall
- Gets the hand jammed in the steering wheel during a crash
- Repeats the same hand motions through computer work, meat slicing work or care giving work over and over, resulting in repetitive stress trauma
If a hand or wrist injury happens on the job, the injured worker may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, covering medical care as well as wage replacement for time off work. If a third party (not the employer) is responsible, there may be an opportunity to recover additional compensation through a third-party liability claim.
Navigating the financial aspects of the health care system along with the legal processes for filing injury claims or lawsuits is a job for an experienced personal injury attorney.
