Leg Injury Compensation
If you have injured your leg in an accident that was not your fault then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim against the negligent party i.e. the party that was responsible for the accident and the injury, if they owed you a duty of care. Some people have a well established duty of care to others, for example, road users to other road users, surgeons to their patients, local councils to their local residents and so on. Any breach of this duty, for example, speeding drivers, negligence during surgery or not correcting uneven paving stones, resulting injury could result in a compensation claim.
Leg Injury Claims Solicitors
It does not matter what type of leg injury you have suffered nor how serious, you can still make a claim. The only difference is that the more serious the injury the more compensation you can claim for. For example, if you fracture your leg you could make a compensation claim of up to £18,000, if you suffer a very severe injury to your ankle you could make a claim of up to £45,000, if your legs require amputation you could claim over £150,000. These compensation figures are not plucked out of thin air and the amount you will be awarded will be based on what has been awarded in previously decided cases and government guidelines.
The compensation awarded will be negotiated on your behalf by one of our personal injury solicitors** in Sheffield. In addition to compensation for your leg injuries, they will also help you to make a claim for any consequential loss you have suffered such as damage to property, medical expenses and loss of income.
