The first thing many new mothers ask, even before seeing their newborns, is: "Are there 10 fingers (and toes)?" Of course, the answer is almost always "yes." Fingers can, though, be lost - amputated - later in life and when that happens it's usually due to an accident with a lawnmower or a power saw. And then the lawsuits follow.

As usual, we focus here on how pain and suffering is evaluated by juries and judges in New York injury cases. And as you might have guessed already, this post will discuss recent finger amputation cases. While that seems like a narrow topic, and one that might result in a small range of monetary recoveries, the opposite is the fact. That's because some cases involve amputations of just one (or just part of one) finger; while others involve two, three or more fingers. Then, there's the issue of which finger - we all know that thumbs, for example, are much more important to function than pinky fingers.
