Compensation for Leg Injuries
Compensation for leg injuries vary depending on the seriousness of the injury, the recovery time, the impact it has had on the victim’s life and with reference to government guidelines and the amount of compensation that has been awarded in previously decided cases. The compensation for your leg injury will rarely be awarded by the Court and in most cases a settlement will be negotiated on your behalf by your personal injury solicitor** in Cardiff.
The following is a rough guide to how much compensation you can claim for a leg injury:
- Minor Leg Injury – up to £18,000
- Serious Leg Injury – up to £80,000
- Amputations – over £150,000
In addition to compensation for the physical injuries you could also make a claim for loss of earnings, damage to property and medical expenses including prescriptions and physiotherapy.
