How much money will I get for my injury claim ?

How much compensation you are entitled to depends on a number of  factors:-

a)      What type of injury:  So a broken foot, will attract a higher level of compensation than soft tissue injury or bruising.

b)      How long the symptoms last for:  So, a whiplash injury which is expected to last 6 months will attract a lower level of compensation than a whiplash injury which is expected to last 12 months

c)      How the injury impacts upon your day to day life:  An office typist would arguably achieve a higher award for a broken wrist than say a receptionist in the same firm who uses a hands free telephone system.

Some rough examples are as follows:

Whiplash injury to the neck where a

Full recovery takes place within 1 – 2 Years      £3,100  to  £5,600

Fractured clavicle                                               £3,650  to   £8,700

Fractures of the forearm                                    £4,750   to £13,700

Wrist Injuries:-

An uncomplicated Colles’ fracture.                     In the region of £5,300

Very minor undisplaced or minimally displaced fractures and soft tissue injuries necessitating application of plaster or bandage for a matter of weeks and a full or virtual recovery within up to 12 months or so.
