New Hand Injury Pain and Suffering Verdicts - $1,000,000 Recoveries Sustainable


The hand is composed of 27 bones:

8 small carpal bones that constitute the wrist

14 phalanges (the finger bones - 2 for thumb, 3 for the rest)

5 metacarpal bones (connecting the carpus to the fingers)

There are also numerous nerves, tendons, ligaments and muscles found in the hand. Damage, even minor, to any of the many parts of the hand can be quite debilitating; major damage to several bones at once or to important nerves or tendons can be extremely disabling, disfiguring and life-altering. Jury verdicts and appellate court decisions have taken these facts into account and $1,000,000 verdicts for pain and suffering in hand injury cases are not uncommon.
