Whether it’s a strain or tear, a broken leg, or something life-changing like an amputation, leg injuries can have a serious impact on your daily life. Our leg injury claims solicitors understand how painful and stressful this time in your life can be, which is why we strive to secure the compensation you need.

How To Make A Leg Injury Claim

Start by calling our personal injury specialists on 0800 056 4110. We’ll take you through a free initial consultation, during which we’ll ask you what happened, who you feel is at fault, and how your life has changed as a result.

Start by calling us on 0800 056 4110 for your free initial consultation. We’ll go through how the injury happened, who you feel is at fault, and how your life has been affected.

If we think you have a claim, we’ll approach the person or organisation you believe is at fault. If they accept responsibility, we’ll negotiate a compensation settlement for you that takes into account your pain, suffering and the impact on your life.

If we think you have a claim but the other party doesn’t admit responsibility, we’ll still fight for compensation for you – all the way to court if necessary.

How Long Do You Have To Make A Leg Injury Claim?

Generally speaking, you have three years from the date of the incident to make a claim. However, there are some exceptions to these time limits, for example if you suffered a criminal assault, in which case the time limit is two years. The time limit may also be shorter if the incident happened abroad.

We encourage you to make your claim as quickly as possible so that we have the best opportunity to gather evidence to support your case.

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Leg Injury?

As every case is different, there are no set compensation amounts for leg injuries. For example, if you have a broken leg, your claim should be worth more than if you have a sprain. We’ll assess your claim based on:

  • The severity of the damage
  • Loss of earnings
  • Long-term impacts such as psychological trauma
  • Rehabilitation or changes to living circumstances
  • Whether or not you’ll need ongoing treatment.

We have a serious injury team who specialise in claims for life-changing incidents such as amputations. If needed, we can arrange rehabilitation and secure interim compensation payments while you wait for your claim to be finalised, which means you can pay for anything you need immediately such as private healthcare.

We can help you to claim for:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Ligament damage
  • Tendon or muscle damage
  • Broken or fractured tibia, fibula or ankle
  • Broken or fractured toes/bones in the foot
  • Bursitis, tendonitis or arthritis
  • Amputation.

Many leg injuries are extremely painful and incur loss of earnings, or in worse cases, the need to switch careers entirely. Severe cases such as amputation can be life-changing. We can help you access rehabilitation and our support and rehabilitation team will treat your welfare as their highest priority, while we try and access the compensation you need.

No Win No Fee Leg Injury Claims

The majority of our leg injury claims are ‘no win, no fee’. This means that yours and your opponent’s legal fees are covered if you’re unsuccessful*. If you’re successful, your opponent will pay most of your legal costs. Any costs not paid by your opponent will be taken from your final compensation.

Why Choose Us?

Our legal experts up and down the country have decades of experience settling leg injury claims just like yours. Though we have helped to secure billions of pounds in personal injury compensation, we understand that every case is unique. That’s why we’ll listen to your story and agree a compensation settlement that meets your specific needs.

If you need them to, our support and rehabilitation team can help arrange rehabilitation and put you in contact with home adaptation experts, for example if you need a ramp adding to your property. We understand that a leg injury goes far beyond the physical damage, and our aim is to secure you compensation that covers everything you need to move on.
