Leg injury compensation amounts

Leg injuries can range in their complexity and therefore, the amount of compensation a person could be entitled to. A mild leg injury like a fracture for example could be valued at up to £27,760. A severe leg injury that leaves the person with substantial, permanent injuries to the leg could be entitled to claim between £54,830 – £135,920.

Leg injuries that lead to amputation will often lead to the highest amount of compensation.

What Type of Leg Injury Can I Claim Compensation For?

The term “broken leg” can encompass a wide range of possible leg injuries that vary in their severity and the amount of pain and distress they can cause the victim. A clean break or fracture of the femur bone in your upper leg tends to heal quickly with no ongoing medical complications, while a serious leg injury involving multiple fractures may lead to possible long-term disability, discomfort and pain.

Stress Fractures

Stress fractures are tiny cracks in the bone caused over a period of time by repeated forces being applied to the bone, and although relatively minor compared to full breaks can still cause prolonged discomfort, and difficulties at work and can lead to complications. Stress fractures are a common workplace injury and are also a common sporting injury caused by excessive training.

Displaced Fractures

A displaced fracture is a broken bone where the bone is not aligned as it should be at the point of the fracture. Such a fracture will have to be manipulated by a medical expert in order to bring it back in line before a cast can be applied to the leg.

Compound Fractures

At the other end of the scale, leg injury compensation can also be claimed for “comminuted” and “compound” fractures in any or all of the leg bones. This is where the bones have been shattered into separate pieces and/or may be protruding through the skin. These leg injuries are typically much more serious and generally lead to much larger leg injury compensation claims. In the most severe cases, such as those caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents or serious criminal acts, some victims may have to have their entire leg amputated.

Other Types of Fractures

There are many other types of fracture that you could be entitled to receive compensation for, including compression fractures (normally affecting the spine), avulsion fractures (the result of a muscle working so hard that it pulls on your bone, causing it to break) and impacted fractures (when a fractured bone forces into another bone, causing it to break). Other types of fractures include greenstick fractures and buckle fractures – both of which are unique to children.
