How much compensation for a broken leg or amputation?
More serious leg injuries such as a broken leg, having a leg amputated or recovering from medical negligence can have long-term, career-changing consequences on your life. However, the circumstances and the impact of your injury on your work will all contribute to the compensation amount that you could expect.
By example, broken leg compensation payouts will be determined by your unique situation. For example, if you suffered a broken leg at work, compensation may be based on your employer’s workers compensation insurance, the severity of the injury sustained, whether you were travelling to or from work and pre-existing conditions that may have been worsened through your work-related activities.
In more severe cases, such as how much compensation for losing a leg, would also be based on the circumstances, such as medical negligence, your occupation, earning capacity, opportunities for advancement and more.

How do I make a leg injury claim?
You can get leg injuries in any number of different ways. However, the first thing to do is get medical attention as a proper diagnosis is essential, not only for your health but any leg injury compensation claim you intend to make.
- Two primary factors in accident claims are:
the amount of long-term pain, or
- whether the injury was severe enough to cause disability.
How severe the pain is can vary significantly from one person to another, and this in turn depends on the type of injury you sustained.
We will work with you and your medical experts to understand your case fully, as it is essential to know the exact nature of your injury and its potential impact.
This will allow us to calculate your final compensation amount and be there to support you through your leg injury compensation claim. If you’re unsure if you can claim for your leg injury, then read on below to help you decide.
What to do if you injure your leg
If you are unfortunate enough to injure your leg at all, then make sure that the following steps are taken.
- If it’s a just minor injury and you’re still able to move freely, then seek medical help for assessment and treatment.
- If it’s a more serious leg injury, then call an ambulance immediately.
Remember that with a serious injury, if you attempt to move, you may end up causing even more damage and more prolonged pain and suffering. Make sure that you provide your doctor with as much information as possible, as this will be recorded on your medical records, which is necessary for your injury claim.
- If you’re injured at your place of work, then make sure the accident is recorded in the company’s accident logbook. Ask any of your colleagues who saw what happened, to email or write down what they saw. This written evidence can be instrumental in any compensation claim.
- If you see any bruising or marking, then try to get a photograph of the injury. If you have any difficulty in moving, you will need somebody else to take the photo for you.
The most common leg injury claims
When you hear of leg injuries, you’ll often hear of ‘broken’ legs. This can encompass a few different injuries. Common leg injury claims we deal with are:
Compound Fractures Of The Leg
Compound fractures are probably at the most severe end of leg breaks. Any of the bones in the leg can suffer from a compound or comminuted fracture. It is where the bone is shattered into multiple pieces and can lead to bones protruding through the skin. It usually requires high impact for a compound fracture to occur.
A stress fracture is a minor, tiny crack in the bone. It develops over time by repeated forces on the bone. These are comparatively minor injuries in comparison to full breaks, but they will still cause some pain and discomfort. They can impact your ability to move about, this can in turn affect your ability to work or travel.
A displaced fracture in the leg is where a doctor will have to move two broken parts of the bone back together before they can heal properly.
Other types of fracture include
- avulsion fractures
- compression fractures, and
- impacted fractures
