Re: How long for a professional accident? (give your opinion)

6 days ago I had an accident, where one of my fingers was pressed between two flat pieces of steel. The finger is intact, nothing is broken, but the force was enough to pierce the fingernail and push some internals of the finger on the outside. The finger was pressed between two flat surfaces!
I work in construction, requiring me to be able to fully use both hands (including closing both hands with full force).
If you were the doctor examining the situation, how long of an inability to work would you prescribe? 1 day? 1 week? 1 month?
If you were self employed the answer would be no time at all, you would not even bother to ask the Dr.
