Guidelines for Leg Injury Compensation Awards
Compensation for the pain and suffering caused by a leg injury will depend upon how severe the injury is. The time taken to make a complete recovery is very important.
If a full recovery is not made, the level of any ongoing disability or lasting symptoms will be taken into account. Any risk that the injured person may develop future complications, such as arthritis, is also considered when valuing a leg injury compensation claim.
The following guidelines relate to compensation for pain and suffering caused by leg injuries. Financial losses, such as loss of earnings, care, medical treatment, etc would be claimed in addition to the injury compensation.
Most Severe Injuries involving Amputation £85,000 – £250,000
Severe Leg Injuries £24,000 – £119,000
Serious Leg Injuries £15,750 – £24,000
Less Serious Leg Injuries up to £12,350
Minor injuries which last for less than 3 months up to £2,150
How much compensation is awarded for a leg injury?
Leg injury compensation payments vary considerably. The most serious injuries can lead to very significant awards. Injuries which cause a lasting disability can attract large compensation payments for pain and suffering, as well as ongoing financial costs relating to such things as medical treatment, care, and loss of earnings.
