How Much Compensation for a Broken Toe

If your toe has been broken in an accident that was not your fault then you may be able to make a personal injury claim.

Although rare, there are some long-term effects of a broken toe that can lead to permanent disability. This can also then lead to the lowering of employment of prospects and the inability to carry out everyday tasks.

How much compensation for a broken toe depends on the level of pain and suffering you have experienced. The extent to which your injury has impacted your life including your ability to work will also impact the amount you may be entitled to.

How Much Compensation?

All personal injury cases are unique and so the amount of compensation that is awarded in each case is also unique. Compensation is understood by looking at two specific factors: general damages and special damages.

General Damages

The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused are the main factors that are used to determine how much general damage compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical examination, from which a report is created that highlights the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity. Our compensation calculator will give you an indication of how much general damage compensation you might be entitled to based upon your injuries.

Special Damages

In addition to receiving compensation for your injuries, you may be able to reclaim any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries. Compensation for financial losses is known as special damages compensation. This can include losses such as loss of earnings due to not being able to return to work, the cost of treatment as well as travel to treatment.

It is important that you keep any receipts or evidence of additional losses in order for these to be reclaimed. With the exception of children, there is a three-year time limit on making a personal injury claim. This time limit begins from the date that the accident initially occurred. Therefore, you should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to assess your case.
