Trip, slips and accidents at work can often result in injuries to the knee and leg, making it difficult to walk or carry out everyday tasks.
Taking into account this inconvenience, moderate knee injuries where a recovery has been complete will attract an award of £5,250.00 however where there is continuous aching or discomfort this could be up to £12,050.00. Injuries involving dislocation, torn cartilage or meniscus with ongoing disability attracts awards between £13,010 and £22.960.00.
A simple fracture to the tibia or fibular warrants an award of up to £10,380.00, however if there has been a full recovery, the award is unlikely to exceed £7,990.00.
Given the range of values, it is therefore essential you get specialist legal advice from a solicitor who can ensure you are receiving the maximum amount of compensation for your injury as well as claiming other losses in addition, such as loss of earnings, cost of mobility aids or the cost of physiotherapy treatment.
