About Leg Injuries

Although there are many different types of leg injury, varying in severity and cause, the common link between them all is the significant, disabling effect they can have on a victim’s life.

If you have suffered a leg injury that was caused due to someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Before you do that, however, you may want to find out how much you could potentially claim for your injury. The figures contained on this page are to be taken as rough estimates, but provide an insight into the average amounts claimed for different levels of injury.

If you want to find out how much you could claim for your specific injury, it is advisable to speak to a solicitor. Call JMW today on 0800 054 6570 or complete our online enquiry form.

Types of Leg Injury

Leg injuries occur in the thigh, ankle or shin and either affect the bone or the soft tissue, such as ligaments, tendons and muscles.

Common leg injuries include, but are by no means limited to:

  • breaks and fractures
  • sprains, strains and ruptures
  • muscle tears
  • amputation
  • contusions

Effects and Symptoms

Every injury is different, but a leg injury can be particularly difficult for victims because - like a foot injury - recovery usually relies on a lack of pressure being exerted on the affected leg, often leaving them unable to walk for prolonged periods of time.

For many people, this means time off work, loss of earnings and an inability to take part in their favoured sports or activities. Their daily lives can change in an instant.

The more severe the injury, the longer that period of inactivity and the more serious the associated symptoms. This also means significantly higher costs when it comes to rehabilitation and treatment of the injury. For example, a leg amputee will require support for the rest of their life, including physiotherapy, adaptations to their home and vehicles, specialist equipment and often psychological support.

How Compensation Could Help You

We know that compensation will never fully atone for your injury if it was caused by someone else’s negligence. However, making a claim can make your life as comfortable as possible in a very difficult time, and help to relieve the financial burden you may suddenly find yourself with.
