Leg Injury Compensation Claims
At Work Claims Bureau, our team of accident at work solicitors have helped thousands of workers to successfully receive compensation following an accident in the workplace.
If you have suffered a broken leg injury whilst at work, we are on your side and here to help you claim the maximum compensation you may be entitled to, without any financial risk to you.
Awards of compensation in successful personal injury claims can be broadly divided into two parts: an award for ‘General damages’, (the award for the pain and suffering caused by your injury) and an award for ‘Special damages’ compensation for any financial losses and expenses you have incurred as a result of your injuries.
With any claim for compensation, individual circumstances vary and the most accurate way to determine how much compensation you could receive for a broken leg injury is to speak directly to a solicitor.
However, by way of an example, here are the typical compensation brackets set out in the ‘Guidelines for the assessment of General Damages in personal Injury Cases’ published by the Judicial College (please note these guidelines relate to awards for the injury only and not any associated financial losses):
Amputations – £85,000 to £250,000
Severe – where there is serious permanent pain and/or disability: £34,000 to £120,000
Moderate – residual permanent pain, discomfort and impairment of function is less severe than above, or a recovery over several years:£16,500 to £34,000
Minor – simple fractures and soft issue injuries with a complete or almost complete recovery lasting from a few months to a few years:£1,500 to £16,500
No Win No Fee Broken Leg Injury Claims
Leg injuries can have a serious impact on your day-to-day life and in some cases, future prospects.
At Work Claims Bureau, we understand how distressing this can be, which is why we are committed to ensuring you receive the highest compensation award you are legally entitled to as well as any future support you may need in terms of medical treatment, rehabilitation and care.
The claims we handle here at Work Claims Bureau are on a No Win, No fee basis too, which put simply, means that if your claim is unsuccessful, you needn’t worry about having to pay a single penny – No Win, No Fee, no financial risk to you.
What should I do to help support my claim?
If you have suffered a broken leg injury due to the negligence of your employer, it is important to obtain as much information as possible to help build a strong case.
Typical evidence your solicitor will ask for in setting out your claim includes:
- Witness details – It is important to provide your solicitor with the contact name, details and position of any co-workers who witnessed the accident take place, or who were present at the scene of the accident
- Medical evidence – It is vital that you can to provide as much medical evidence as possible to help support the extent of your injury. Your solicitor will require the contact details of the hospital you have attended and in addition, any other scheduled appointments you may have, including any rehabilitation or physiotherapy you may require.
- Photographic evidence – Understandably, obtaining photographic evidence at the time of the accident is most certainly not at the top of the priority list. However, should you have taken any photographs of the location or what caused the accident to happen, or if any co-workers can assist you with this, it is important to provide your solicitor with them, where possible.
- Reporting – By law, your employer is responsible for recording any accidents which occur in the workplace. You should make your solicitor aware of the date and time the accident was recorded and if possible, you should also provide the contact name, details and position of the person it was recorded by.
- Financial Loss – If you have required time off work due to a broken leg injury, it is important to record the dates you have required off work and any other financial losses you may have incurred.
