Even hand, wrist and finger injuries can be life-changing

All kinds of injuries can have an impact on your life, but you may not have thought about how a simple injury to the bones in your hands and wrists could severely impact your life. People use their hands every day, many times without thinking about it. From scratching your wrist to rubbing your eyes, your hands are in constant motion.

When you're in a crash or are hurt in other circumstances, there is a risk that you could injure your fingers, hand or wrist. Each of these is vital to have a functioning hand that can be used without pain or dysfunction. If you hurt even one part of the hand or wrist, you may find that you have no grip strength or that you struggle to hold objects as simple as pencils or pens.

Some common injuries that occur to the hands and wrists include:

  • Torn ligaments
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Sprains
  • Repetitive motion injuries

Each of these has the potential to cause pain and frustration for patients. Depending on the severity of the injury, it could take many weeks or months to recover any use of the extremity.

What should you do if you suffer a hand, wrist or finger injury?

Seek medical help quickly. Even something as seemingly harmless as a broken bone in a finger could heal incorrectly and cause chronic pain. It's in your interest to seek medical care to make sure you receive a proper diagnosis and are on the right treatment plan.

If your injury was caused by someone else's actions or negligence, it may be wise to explore your options for seeking compensation to cover your medical expenses and other costs associated with the injury.
