How Much Do You Get For Fracture or Broken Bone Claims?
Often, one is left wondering after injury, “how much compensation will I get for my broken arm?” or “how much compensation for my slipped disk?” This section of the guide will assist you in determining how much you are entitled to for certain accidental injuries. The more severe your injury, the higher the fracture or broken bone compensation amount you will be awarded. An example of this would be the compensation pay-out for a broken or fractured leg may not be as significant as the compensation pay-out for a back injury. The final amount is dictated on whether the injury induces long term complications.
Similar cases can have different outcomes. For example, a broken leg can be considered a severe injury, as your movement is greatly inhibited. The healing time for a broken leg is usually months, however sometimes the aftereffects can leave the victim with different complications such as a limp, or constant pain and discomfort. Therefore different factors come to play when trying to determine the compensation payouts.
Similarly, the effect of a broken back can take anywhere between months to years to heal properly. Despite the two injuries being superficially similar the payouts would be different as the healing times were not the same as one was a few months and the other more than a year etc. As it is impossible to foresee the long terms effects on your personal injury, you would be entitled to compensation for the loss of your enmity, ability to move around or earn money.
The diagrams below simply entail the difference between injuries and pay-outs, with reference to some of the cases which we have worked on ourselves. Please remember these are for reference and a guideline only.
