Leg Accident Claims
A leg injury compensation claim can result from many different types of accidents, or even from being the unfortunate victim as a result of a criminal assault.
With over 100 years’ collective experience in successfully handling personal injury claims for non-fault accident victims, we have recovered hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of compensation for people who have suffered leg amputation, burns, bruising, scarring, lacerations, muscular damage, ligament/ tendon damage and many of types of leg injuries.
If you have suffered a leg injury due to no fault of your own, you could be entitled to claim leg injury compensation. Below is a guide to the types of compensation that you may be entitled. However, there are other factors like can you work, loss of money, medical costs, etc.
Minor leg injuries
If you have suffered a simple fracture, a soft tissue injury, sprain, muscular damage, or even a clean break or fracture to the tibia or fibula bones with no on-going symptoms, you could be entitled to up to £6,000 compensation.
Minor injury to your upper leg
If you have suffered a clean break or fracture to the femur bone in your upper leg which heals quickly with no on-going symptoms, you could expect to receive from the region of £6,000 – £9,200 compensation.
Multiple Fracture Injuries
The level of compensation claimed for multiple fracture injuries depends on the amount of time off work. The presence of a risk of degenerative changes; an imperfect union of fractures, muscle wasting; limited joint movements; instability in the knee; permanent scarring, or permanently increased vulnerability to future damage. You could be entitled to £18,250 – £27,750 compensation.
Severe Leg Injury Claims
We have settled many severe cases for claimants who have suffered serious injuries to joints or ligaments resulting in instability; prolonged treatment; a lengthy period of non-weight bearing; the near certainty that arthritis will ensue; injuries involving the hip requiring arthrodesis or hip replacement; and extensive scarring. Compensation in the region of £27,750 to £36,000 is the level you could expect if you suffer any of the same symptoms listed.
