Without the use of your legs, mobility becomes a challenge and if you suffer life-changing leg injuries in an accident, you may be confined to a wheelchair or left struggling to walk. Injuries suffered can affect not only your mobility but also your ability to earn a living, your family life and your confidence, with many victims of life-changing leg injuries suffering from depression and anxiety.
Let Accident Advice Helpline lift the financial weight off your shoulders if you or someone you love has been injured – we’ve helped hundreds of customers claim personal injury compensation for leg injuries since we were established in 2000, and you could be next in line for a settlement.
How has your life changed?
When working out how much compensation you’ll receive, your personal injury lawyer will look at how your injuries have affected your life. Serious leg injuries can include:
- Crush injuries or other severe injuries leading to amputation
- Injuries which affect your mobility, such as fractures that don’t heal properly
- Tendon or ligament injuries which affect your ability to walk, play sports etc.
Life-changing injuries that affect your legs will not only mean you could suffer from ongoing pain – months of rehabilitation and therapy may be needed to get you mobile again, or you could even be left permanently disabled.
Many people who suffer severe injuries to their legs find themselves unable to return to work and in need of specialist care and support to remain independent – and care and treatment can be expensive.
Your personal injury settlement takes all of this into account and our experienced professional lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis to get you the compensation you deserve.
How did your accident happen?
Leg injuries could be sustained in a variety of different ways, but some of the most common types of accident leading to leg injuries include:
- Road traffic accidents
- Crush injuries caused by objects falling from height or a building collapse
- Falling from height
- Theme park injuries – such as a roller coaster collision
If somebody else is to blame for your accident, they could be held liable and ordered to pay you personal injury compensation.
