Suffering any kind of laceration to your foot can be both painful and disruptive. Firstly you have the injury to recover from, and secondly you have to cope with the disruption that injury causes you. There is a good chance you won’t be able to walk properly for a while, particularly if the injury is to the sole of your foot (perhaps because you trod on broken glass or something similar, for example).
Foot laceration compensation may not have occurred to you as a possibility. However it is worth thinking about, mainly because you may have incurred your injury as the result of negligence. For instance, if you were in a café and trod on a broken glass in the aisle, this could point to negligence on the part of the café owner. They have a duty to ensure every customer is safe and that all spillages are cleared up as soon as possible. Breakages should be cleared up quickly so as not to cause potential danger to anyone in the area.
How much could you get for foot laceration compensation?
This will depend on a variety of factors. For example you might end up winning more if you are left with significant scarring as a result of your injury. The severity of the injury will also be borne in mind when assessing the likelihood of winning a specific amount in compensation of this kind.
Since it is impossible to work out what might be granted, it is always best to seek the advice of a professional injury compensation lawyer before doing anything else. They usually work on a no win, no fee* basis, which means they could take on your case and you won’t pay a fee if they don’t win for you. You can find out more by contacting someone in this business.
