If you have suffered a broken leg in the workplace, in a public place or anywhere else, through no fault of your own, you may be questioning, how much compensation you may be entitled to. However, there is no set fee for this type of injury but there are indicators to give you an idea how much you are likely to receive.

Broken leg claims vary

When considering how much compensation for a broken leg you should bear in mind the severity of the injury. While it may not sound serious if you hear of a broken leg, it can create a significant impact on someone’s life. The femur, tibia and fibula are all fairly robust bones existing in the upper and lower leg. Hairline fractures to any of these bones are often not dramatically detrimental. However, if you have a multiple or complex break, or the bone has been broken previously, then there can be a prolonged period of recovery.

This can mean 24-hour care is required and the individual may not be able to return to work which could lead to loss of earnings. It is the law that you should be compensated for this if the accident was not your fault.

The amount of compensation you could receive for your broken leg is something that is decided by the courts based on previous cases. Other special damages are considered too, which may include expenses paid out for medical aides or transport costs to medical appointments.

Amounts of compensation for a broken leg

  • Less serious leg injury compensation amounts begin at £1,000 and can reach up to £18,250.
  • Compensation for severe injuries to the leg begins at £18,250 and goes up to £89,000

The courts will examine all the aspects of your claim and will also refer to their own guidelines and previous cases when working out how much compensation for a broken leg. This will include the pain suffering and loss you have encountered as a result of your injury.
