    Average Personal Injury Settlements


    Average Personal Injury Settlements

    Average personal injury settlements

    If you have become a victim of an injury or illness, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation. Events leading to such personal injuries include:

    • Road traffic accidents
    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Accidents in the workplace
    • Accidents in public places
    • Defective products

    While our 30-second test will help you to gauge the amount of compensation you could be entitled to, it is important to understand that the results will only provide you with a starting point from which you can try to determine the value of your claim.

    Understanding average personal injury settlements

    For your information only, the average personal injury settlements are as follows:

    • Minor whiplash: £2,500 – £5,000
    • Neck fractures: £12,000 – £200,000
    • Minor head injuries: £1,500 – £7,000
    • Moderate arm injuries: £9,000 – £75,000
    • Loss of a front tooth: £1,000 – £2,000
    • Trivial scarring: £1,000 – £2,000
    • Significant scarring: £5,000 – £18,000
    • Loss of taste and smell: £22,000

    The average personal injury settlements detailed above are for the injuries listed only and tend to rise year on year, according to the guidelines set by the Judicial Studies Board.

    To value the amount of compensation you are eligible to claim for your injuries, you will need to ask a solicitor to review all of the facts surrounding your case and make contact with any witnesses to your personal injury.
