The loss of a hand is considered almost as severe as the loss of the whole arm and awards are not far short of those for arms. The range of awards varies from "total or effective loss of both hands" (£100,500 - £144,000), to "trivial thumb injuries" (in the region of £1,575). There are many steps in between these two extremes.
Awards for VWF range from "most serious" (£22, 600 - £27,500) to "minor" (£2,150 - £6,175) depending on factors such as effect on lifestyle, frequency and duration of symptoms, age and number of fingers or hands affected.
The compensation for dermatitis (£1,225 - £13,700) is based primarily on the extent and duration of the symptoms. Cases where the face is also effected have lead to higher awards.
