Soft tissue leg injuries (£1,800 to £21,100)

You could be awarded between £1,800 and £21,100 as compensation for suffering a soft tissue leg injury in an accident.

In most cases a soft tissue injury is a tear to your muscle, ligament or tendon. This is usually caused by overstretching the soft tissue in your legs. Other soft tissue injuries include lacerations, cuts and bruising. The amount of compensation you can be awarded will depend on the serious of the soft tissue injury; whether a full recovery can be made; how long it takes to make a full recovery; and if any cosmetic or physical disability is caused.

Broken leg (£6,900 ~ £21,100)

You could be awarded between £6,900 and £21,100 as compensation for suffering a broken leg injury in an accident.

This bracket is for simple leg fractures. Leg fractures involving the femur or fibula bones will likely command towards the lower half of the bracket. The higher end of the bracket are for people who have made a reasonable recovery from their leg fracture, but still suffer from conditions such as limps or impaired mobility. Accidents at work and car accidents are both common causes of broken leg injuries.

Complicated leg fractures (£21,100 ~ £41,600)

You could be awarded between £21,100 and £46,600 as compensation for suffering a complicated leg fracture in an accident.

You are more prone to suffering a complicated leg fracture following a high impact accident such as a car crash. In a serious accident, multiple leg fractures including compound fractures and comminuted fractures can be suffered. These leg fractures can result in muscle wasting, limited joint movements, knee instability, extensive permanent scarring and require prolonged treatment.

Serious leg fractures (£41,600 ~ £103,200)

You could be awarded between £41,600 and £103,200 as compensation for suffering a serious leg fracture in an accident.

For the most serious of leg fractures, the injured person will likely be dependent on mobility aids, such as crutches and wheelchairs, for the rest of their life. People who have suffered very serious leg fractures will undergo years of treatment and extensive surgery. Major surgery such as bone grafting may be carried out to fix your leg bones or joints. This bracket only applies to severe leg injuries without amputation.

Leg amputation (£74,400 ~ £214,300)

You could be awarded between £74,400 and £214,300 as compensation for suffering amputated legs in an accident.

A leg amputation is the permanent surgical removal of your leg from the body. Amputation surgery is only considered when horrific leg injury or infection is suffered and the chance of recovery or containing the injury is minimal. The lower end of the bracket starts for below-the-knee amputations on one leg. The compensation rises for above-the-knee amputations, full leg amputation and reaches the higher end of the bracket for when amputation affects both of your legs.

Find out how we can help if you have suffered a leg amputation as a result of an accident.

Paralysed legs (£112,700 ~ £307,000)

You could be awarded between £112,700 and £307,000 as compensation for suffering paralysed legs in a car crash accident.

Although this is not a leg injury, we have included this as it can affect your legs. Paralysis of the legs is most often caused by damage to the brain or spinal cord. Paraplegia is the complete or incomplete paralysis of the lower half of your body. Tetraplegia, sometimes known as quadriplegia, is paralysis of both arms and legs. This impairment is can be suffered from serious high impact accidents such as car crashes, falls and theme park ride accidents.

Find out how we can help if you have been affected with paralysis following an accident.
