    Average PI claims


    Average PI claims

    The amount of compensation you receive for a personal injury (PI) claim will depend on the type of injuries you have sustained and the circumstances surrounding your claim. If you would like to estimate the value of your claim, you can do this by looking up the average PI claims figures for your specific injuries.

    Average PI claims for leg injuries

    Aside from soft tissue injuries, the most common leg injuries involve fractures to the tibia and fibula (the bones that make up the lower leg). These fractures can occur following a heavy fall or impact. Simple fractures can attract compensation awards of between £3,000 and £10,000. Fractures of the femur (thighbone) are much more serious and payouts for such injuries usually exceed £10,000.

    Average PI claims for head injuries

    Head injuries are wide ranging in terms of their severity. The brackets for compensation awards can therefore range from £1,250 to £7,000 for minor head injuries where there is no brain damage to as much as £200,000 for serious head injuries where there is severe brain damage. Claims involving brain injuries are highly specialised and should only be dealt with by an experienced personal injury solicitor.

    Average PI claims for neck injuries

    Neck injuries are generally associated with road traffic accidents. Recovery from most neck injuries will usually take place within a 12 month period. However, more troublesome injuries may be associated with recovery periods of up to five years. The average settlement for mild to moderate neck injuries typically ranges from £2,000 to £5,000.

    Average PI claims for eye injuries

    Most eye injuries do not involve the “seeing” parts of the eye. In serious cases, vision may be disrupted and as such, compensation awards can be considerably high. Injuries resulting in total blindness may attract awards of around £150,000.
