Leg injury compensation claims

ankle injury compensation claims

Leg injuries are the subject of some of the most serious injury claims that we deal with, as these injuries can often severely incapacitate the people they affect. Whether they involve a temporary broken bone, or a long-term mobility issue, they can be serious. Regardless of the severity of the condition, those who have sustained a leg injury through no fault of their own may be able to make a leg injury compensation claim.

Our specialist injury claims solicitors want to make sure that all our clients receive the best possible pay-out, which is why we evaluate all the potential avenues of compensation as part of bringing your claim. We know that compensation cannot make up for the harm caused to you, but it can be comforting to know that the costs of dealing with your condition have been covered, and to know that the negligence that caused your injury has been accounted for.

Read on to find out more about how we can pursue leg injury compensation claims.

Claiming compensation for a leg injury

In any injury claim, we are looking to establish how the negligence of another person or organisation allowed your injury to occur. In the case of a leg injury compensation claim, you may have been involved in a work accident in which a scaffold board collapsed, or you may have sustained the injury after slipping on a wet surface in a supermarket. As long as there is evidence that another party was at least partially responsible for what has happened, you may have a claim to make.

Most importantly, personal injury claims can be strengthened with specialist medical evidence. As part of the claim, we can usually need to obtain access to your medical records, and we can typically hire a medical expert to review your condition and complete a medico-legal report.

It may seem like a bit of a complicated process, but we can reassure you that our lawyers deal with all the difficult details to ensure that every stage of the claim is stress-free for you.

Leg injury compensation values

The official Judicial College guidelines set out recommendations on the potential compensation pay-outs for leg injuries, which are as follows:

  • Loss of Both Legs- £191,950 to £224,800;
  • Below-knee Amputation of Both Legs- £160,600 to £215,310;
  • Above-knee Amputation of One Leg- £83,550 to £109,570;
  • Below-knee Amputation of One Leg- £78,100 to £106,010;
  • The Most Serious Injuries Short of Amputation- £76,730 to £108,370;
  • Very Serious- £43,710 to £67,410;
  • Serious- £31,250 to £43,710;
  • Moderate- £22,130 to £31,250;
  • Fractures from which an Incomplete Recovery is Made or Serious Soft Tissue Injuries- £14,320 to £22,130;
  • Simple Fracture of a Femur with No Damage to Articular Surfaces- £7,270 to £11,220;
  • Simple Fractures to Tibia or Fibula or Soft Tissue Injuries- Up to £9,440.

It is important to highlight that these suggested pay-outs are just under the General Damages category, covering pain, suffering, and loss of amenity. Under Special Damages, claimants can also obtain leg injury compensation to cover any losses or expenses caused, such as lost earnings due to time off work, or the cost of treatment options like pain medication or mobility aids. In serious injury compensation claims, it can be the Special Damages that makes up the higher portion of the overall pay-out.
