    Compensation for serious leg lacerations


    Lacerations, or cuts, are tears in the skin caused by an accident, and they are amongst the most common types of injuries sustained. Serious leg lacerations could cause damage to underlying nerves, tendons or bones – it could even lead to a fracture. In extremely serious cases, there may even be the need to amputate the leg.

    Many serious leg lacerations can leave scar tissue behind, and if this is unsightly it can cause anxiety and embarrassment – something which will be taken into account when you make a claim for personal injury compensation. There is also the risk of infection after any laceration, and abnormal scarring could occur, where scar tissue is sensitive to touch.

    If you have suffered serious leg lacerations, you’ll probably need medical treatment and may require surgery. It’s likely that you will also need to take time off work to recover from your injuries, and this could lead to loss of earnings, affecting you and your family financially. If you’ve been injured and somebody else is to blame, contact a personal injury lawyer to find out whether you could make a claim for personal injury compensation.

    How much compensation will you receive?

    If you’ve sustained a serious laceration to your leg, this could impact your mobility and could leave you in pain and unable to work. Your loss of earnings and any financial impact caused by your injuries will be taken into account when working out your settlement, and your personal injury lawyer will usually refer to similar cases from the past to arrive at a suitable figure. If you will require medical treatment or care in the future, this will also be taken into consideration.
