Being compensated for a broken leg can help you recover from your accident and help you to be put back in a steady position financially, as though the accident never happened.
We understand how disabling a leg injury can be, the pain and suffering it can cause and how such an injury can affect your day-to-day lifestyle. Our aim is to recover the highest award possible, as quickly as possible, to put you back into the position you were in before the accident occurred.

Leg Injury Compensation Amounts
Below are some examples of the compensation you could expect to receive for different types of claims.
Minor leg injuries
If you have suffered a simple fracture, a soft tissue injury, sprain, muscular damage, or even a clean break or fracture to the tibia or fibula bones with no on-going symptoms, you could be entitled to up to £6,000 compensation.
Minor injury to your upper leg
If you have suffered a clean break or fracture to the femur bone in your upper leg which heals quickly with no on-going symptoms, you could expect to receive between the region of £6,000 – £9,200 compensation.
Multiple Fracture Injuries
The level of compensation that can be claimed for multiple fracture injuries will be influenced by the amount of time you have been off work; the presence of risk of degenerative changes; imperfect union of fractures, muscle wasting; limited joint movements; instability in the knee; permanent scarring, or permanently increased vulnerability for future damage. If you suffer from any of these, you could be entitled to £18,250 – £27,750 compensation.
Severe Leg Injury Claims
We have settled many severe cases for claimants who have suffered serious injuries to joints or ligaments resulting in instability; prolonged treatment; a lengthy period of non-weight bearing; the near certainty that arthritis will ensue; injuries involving the hip requiring arthrodesis or hip replacement; and extensive scarring. Compensation in the region of ?27,750 to ?36,000 is the level you could expect if you suffer any of the same symptoms listed.
