Legs are responsible for our day-to-day movement, so if you happen to have been in an accident a leg injury can become detrimental to your everyday life. Depending on the severity of the injury, you could be eligible to claim compensation for the pain and suffering you have been through.
Over the years, our solicitors at First Personal Injury have helped many people claim leg injury compensation and are committed to giving the best possible legal advice. It’s our job to ease the recovery process, fighting for the compensation you’re entitled to and helping you move forward with your life.
There are various cases of leg injury that may qualify for a settlement. The consequences of this type of incident can also have an impact on your psychological health, meaning the rehabilitation period could be elongated for many months, or even years after. The structure of the human leg involves the thigh bone (femur), kneecap (patella) and shin bones (tibia and fibula), meaning there are several types of fractures and breaks to the leg. Some varieties of leg damage include:
The painful rehabilitation process may involve time off work and countless physiotherapy sessions, which can have a huge impact on daily activities and financial loss. Unfortunately, some cases can be so severe that amputation may be required, including the potential need for prosthetics. This level of trauma is life-changing, so a large sum of compensation will be a step in the right direction in order to improve your quality of life.
Amounts of compensation settlements will take into account a number of factors including, how long your injury takes to heal, the medical procedures you have undergone and any ongoing symptoms or permanent disability that may have come from the injury. Minor cases could result in claims of up to around £7,000 and those involved in some of the worst accidents could settle an amount between £80,000 and £210,000.
If you have been involved in an accident and feel you may be entitled to compensation, our team of professional solicitors at First Personal Injury can fight your case on your behalf. We understand this type of injury can have a damaging effect on your life, so we will aim to fight for the settlement you deserve.
