You are probably aware that appointing an experienced solicitor really can make a difference as to whether a personal injury claim succeeds and also to the amount of compensation we can recover on your behalf – to help you, we offer no win, no fee on claims we take on.

How much compensation could I receive for an accident in a public place claim?

Compensation award guidelines can vary depending on the severity of the accident and which body part has been injured/affected by the accident. In some cases, an accident may exacerbate an existing injury but it may still be possible to make a claim.

As an example, the most common injuries suffered in public liability accidents are to the back. Compensation awards vary enormously, depending on the severity and impact of the injury on your life, and how long the injuries last.

As an indication, here’s a range of compensation values for injuries sustained to the back:

  • A full recovery is made between a few days and a few months – up to 1,750
  • A full recovery is made between a few months and 2 years without surgery – 1,750 to 6,000
  • A full or partial recovery within 2-5 years leaving nuisance level symptoms – 6,000 – 9,500
  • More complex back injuries can mean higher compensation, with between 65,000 and 115,000 being awarded for the most severe cases.
