How much compensation money for a Foot Injury?
Having a foot injury can cause serious problems with the quality of your life. If the accident was not your fault then you should be compensated for your injuries. The amount you get will depend on the severity of the injury. The amount could be from £8,000 up to £117.000 .
With an injury where it was necessary to amputate both feet the amount would be in the region of £98,500 to £117,000. For an amputation of one foot again treated as mention above and the amount of compensation would be in the region of £48,850 to £63,625. Cases where the foot injury is severe enough to cause permanent and severe pain or disability, the amount of compensation would be in the region of £48,850 to £63,625. This would also include cases where there has been a traumatic amputation of the forefoot or heal and mobility was restricted as a result. Severe injuries to one foot which has resulted in heel fusion, osteoprosis or other disabilities which prevent the injured from wearing normal shoes, the amount of compensation would be in the region of £26,500 to £39,200. Fractures of either both heels and both feet with a substantial restriction on mobility would also fall under this bracket. Serious cases where the injuries involved multiple operations and left disfiguring scars and persistent irritation the amount of compensation will be at the higher end of the scale of £14,500 to £22,650. The lower end of the scale would be for those less severe injuries which resulted in continuing pain from traumatic arthritis, prolonged treatment with the future risk of osteoarthritis. Moderate foot injuries like a displaced metatarsal fracture which results in permanent deformity and continuing symptoms the amount of compensation would be in the region of £8,150 to £14,500.
