    Compensation for leg injuries in a car accident

    Car accidents can lead to serious injuries and if you’ve suffered leg injuries in a car accident, you may be unable to return to work and may need medical treatment, even surgery, to recover. Leg injuries can be life-changing, as they could affect your mobility and your ability to be independent – in some cases car accidents could lead to permanent disability.

    If you’ve sustained leg injuries in a car accident, it is easy to blame yourself for what happened. It may be that the other driver was to blame – or, if you were a pedestrian, the driver of the vehicle that struck you could be at fault. Accident Advice Helpline’s team of professional personal injury lawyers have years of experience helping people like you claim compensation for car accident injuries, so get in touch to see if you have a viable claim.

    Serious leg injuries

    Car accidents have the potential to cause serious leg injuries including:

    • Crush injuries – you may be trapped in the vehicle and suffer crush injuries to your arms or legs
    • Complex and compound fractures, which could put you at risk of infection
    • Burns, if your vehicle catches on fire
    • Cuts and lacerations – these could be life-threatening if they are deep and may require skin grafts and surgery
    • Tendon and ligament injuries which could affect mobility and require surgery/physiotherapy

    Whilst your injuries are more likely to be serious if you’re travelling at speed, you could suffer leg injuries even in an accident in a parked car. If you have been hit by a car whilst crossing the road, your injuries could be life threatening or could impact your quality of life in future. We take all these things into account when handling your personal injury claim, and you could find out right now how much compensation you could get by taking the 30-second test on our website.

    How have your injuries affected you?

    Are you unable to return to work due to your leg injuries? Perhaps you have been left confined to a wheelchair either temporarily or even permanently after your accident. Your injuries could seriously impact your life, and you may need ongoing treatment and care to recover. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and find out whether you’re able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. If you’ve been hit by a dangerous driver whilst crossing the road or rear-ended on the motorway, we can help you claim the compensation you deserve, provided it has been three years or less since your accident.
