Lower Body Injuries Include

Pelvic Injuries

A pelvic injury covers a wide range of different injuries. It can be a very debilitating condition that can cause significant disablement in some cases. 

The pelvis is located in the lower part of the abdomen just below the hip bones where there are many important organs that could be damaged, including the bladder and the reproductive organs.

It is your legal right to make a claim compensation after experiencing an accident that wasn’t your fault. However, for most personal injury cases there is a time limit of three years to make the claim in. The time limit usually begins from the date that you suffered the accident or when you first realised you had symptoms of an illness like cancer. 

Leg Injuries

Leg injury compensation refers to damage to any part of the upper or lower legs. Receiving an injury to this part of the body can have a serious impact upon your ability to walk and maintain your independence. It could also impact upon your ability to work in the same capacity as you did before or to work at all. Therefore, the settlements for leg injury claims can often be quite large.

Groin Injuries

Groin injuries can be a particularly painful injury to sustain. In some cases, the injury can lead to permanent damage of this area. If you have suffered a groin injury due to an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation in response. 

Foot Injury Compensation

This type of claim is also fairly common, and it can arise from many different types of accidents. In order to ensure that the foot injury compensation claim is successful, it must be proven that your accident happened as a result of someone else’s negligence. Compensation could be up to £87,410 if the injury is very severe. Compensation would likely be higher if the accident has resulted in a foot being amputated. 

Breaks and Fractures Compensation

If a break or fracture occurred due to an accident that wasn’t your fault, it is your right to make a claim if you wish. If you break your leg, the compensation amount could be anywhere between £7,000 – £21,000 depending upon the severity. 

Ankle Injury Compensation

The ankle is an intricate and very important part of the body and it contains muscles, cartridge, tendons and ligaments. If any of these components are damaged, it could cause the sufferer significant pain and it could possibly result in permanent disability. Ankle injury compensation could be anywhere between £5,800 – £55,560 depending upon the severity of the injury.

Toe Injuries

If you have suffered an injury causing damage to your toe and it was not your fault, then you may be able to claim toe injury compensation. It doesn’t matter whether the toe injury was the result of an accident at work, or due to an accident in a public place or some other scenario, as long as it wasn’t your fault then you could be entitled to compensation. A toe injury could result in up to £16,800 or potentially more compensation if a toe has had to be amputated. 

Amount of Compensation

Compensation amounts are decided based upon a variety of factors. The pain and suffering that the injury has caused is taken into account, as is the impact that this injury has had upon your ability to function/complete certain tasks as you normally would. Compensation also takes into account any financial losses that have occurred due to the injuries you have suffered. For example, if you have had to pay for treatment or have lost income due to having to take time off work, then compensation could cover these costs. Therefore, you should keep any receipts that highlight financial losses that have occurred due to your injuries.

However, it is important to remember that compensation is calculated on an individual basis and so the best way to determine how much compensation you are likely to be owed in your scenario is to speak directly to a personal injury solicitor.
