In brief: Depends

This is a question that needs limits.
Depends on the type of injury, the extent of the injury and treatments given. The hand is one of the most complex parts of the body. Injury can be minimal to severe. If joints are involved, tendons involved and nerves and vessels involved, it could take months to years to recover. Simple injuries anywhere from a few days to a week or so.
