Leg Injury Compensation
If you injure your leg in an accident that was not your fault then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim against the negligent party as an injury to the leg can not only be very painful but can causes severe discomfort to the victim and the victim’s family.
You can suffer a leg injury in any number of ways from a slip, trip or fall to a surgical error or a road traffic accident. It does not matter what type of injury you have sustained and it could be simple bruising, a fracture, a breakage or a serious injury that requires amputation.
Make a Claim for a Leg Injury
The amount of compensation you can claim following a leg injury will depend on the seriousness of the injury, recovery time and the degree of negligence whilst taking into account the amount that has been awarded in previously decided cases and what is dictated by government guidelines. A sample of the guidelines for leg injuries is as follows:
- Minor injury – up to £2,500
- Ankle injury with full recovery within a year – up to £4,000
- Simple fractures – up to £9,000
- Severe ankle injuries – up to £40,000
- Total loss of both legs – up to £180,000
If you have injured your leg in an accident that was not your fault then you should speak with one of our personal injury solicitors Wakefield who will deal with your case on a no win no fee* basis, which means that you do not have to despair about expensive legal fees and can instead focus on making the claim and on your recovery. Under a no win no fee* arrangement your legal fees are only due if your case is successful, in which case they will be paid for by the negligent party anyway (or their insurance company).
A compensation claim following a leg injury should be made within three years of the date of the accident, or in the case of a child within three years of the child’s 18th birthday i.e. before the child turns 21.
