Compensation for a leg injury

broken foot

Accident Advice Helpline deals with thousands of different injury and accident victims each year and each of these individuals will have different injuries resulting from his or her accident. Each injury will have a different effect on its victim’s life and as a victim, you may wish to secure compensation for a leg injury for example.

A leg injury can have a particularly harsh impact on the victim’s life. Often it is only when one’s mobility is limited, impeded or restricted that one truly appreciates how we take any of our limbs for granted on a day-to-day basis.

Seeking compensation for a leg injury claim can include the following injuries:

  • Broken leg
  • Broken ankle
  • Injured toes
  • Sprained ankle
  • Amputation of leg
  • Amputation of foot
  • Amputation of toes
  • Knee dislocation
  • Torn ligaments
  • Ruptured Achilles

As you can see from the above list, the injuries which can occur to a leg are numerous and in an accident more than one kind of injury can occur. Therefore, a leg injury claim can include compensation for the injury in question, as well as for loss of earnings. If one suffers from a leg injury, it is likely that one’s ability to work, or at least to get to work, may be compromised. If a serious leg injury occurs, one’s ability to do one’s job may be entirely removed. If this is the case, then lost earnings will form part of the compensation claim. In addition, there may be other expenses incurred. Perhaps you can’t drive and you need to get taxis; perhaps you need particular physiotherapy, or special footwear.

A leg injury claim can result most commonly from car accidents, falls and slips and sports injuries. At Accident Advice Helpline we will provide you from the outset with professional advice on your rights, the leg injury claim process, possible compensation and the dealings you will have with your solicitor, who will be one of the nationwide legal team that Accident Advice Helpline works with.

Accident Advice Helpline, whose patron is the UK consumer rights champion Dame Esther Rantzen, is proud of its dedicated, friendly and professional advisors who will be sympathetic to your circumstances. We understand that, with a leg injury, you will most likely be housebound and so a leg injury claim can be submitted over the telephone. No visits will be required to your solicitor’s offices either.

We also appreciate that in times like this, finances may be affected by your injury and therefore:
