Finger and Hand Injuries: Average Settlement/Verdict
According to a Jury Verdict Research study released this month, the average jury award for finger and hand injuries is $629,382. This data for fractures, crush injuries, and nerve damage to fingers and hands is based on a review of jury verdicts in the United States over the last 10 years.
This average finger and hand injury verdict is a little bit misleading because the verdict included a $20,000,000 verdict and other verdicts which completely distort the average verdict. The median verdict for hand and finger lawsuit verdicts, which, by definition, eliminates both high verdicts and the low verdicts, was $73,250.
About a third of these injuries were in car, truck and motorcycle accidents.
