When someone is seeking compensation for a torn ligament, ‘how much will I get?’, is one of the questions that they will ask their solicitor. But what a lot of people don’t know is that there are different answers to the question based on the facts of the case. Below are some of the factors that are going to make a difference to the amount of money that someone will get for a torn ligament.
Injury severity will affect the answer to – How much compensation for a torn ligament?
The first thing that will affect how much money you get from a torn ligament is how badly you were injured. Are you unable to walk because of the injury? Are you unable to move your arm? What other kinds of injuries do you have along with the torn ligament? These factors are all going to affect how much money you’re going to get after you have a torn ligament.
The second thing that is going to affect how much compensation for a torn ligament case is your short-term outlook. How long are you going to be out of work, if you were working? What other kinds of things are you unable to do because of the torn ligament? Do you need to have specialised care or do you have to have someone come in and clean your house, or walk your dog, because of the torn ligament? These will all affect the amount that you receive.
The third thing that is going to affect how much money you are likely to receive when you’ve suffered a torn ligament is the long-term outlook for you. Can it be fixed? Do you have to have surgery on the area to have it fixed? Are you going to have to be in a wheelchair because of it? Is it possible that you will have a long-term disability because of it? The answers to all these questions are going to affect the amount that you receive because of your injury.
Another factor that’s going to affect how much money someone gets for a torn ligament is whether or not they have a solicitor.
