Amount of Compensation

In order to promote consistency and assist the courts, personal injury solicitors and other advisers, the Judicial Studies Board publish a set of guidelines for the level of injury awards for a broad range of injuries. The information, which follows, has been taken from those guidelines. Whilst the guidelines are very useful and provide a good general indicator of the level of damages which may be paid, it should be remembered that no two cases are ever the same and general damage claims for injuries resulting from accidents will always reflect the individual circumstances of the particular in dividual and the injuries he or she has suffered and claims will be assessed accordingly.

 

Accidents Leading to Arm Injury Claims (Amputations)

The most serious arm injuries are those which lead to amputations and, consequently, those types of injuries attract the highest compensation claims awards for personal injury. In accidents leading to injuries which necessitate the amputation of both arms, compensation claims would be in the region between 125,000 and 155,000. Where a single arm is amputated at the shoulder, the compensation award may be in the region of 72,500. Where the amputation is above the elbow, claims may be paid in the region 57,500 to 67,500. Awards will be at the upper end of this bracket where the stump remaining after the amputation is small making the fitting of a prosthesis difficult.

Where the amputation of a single arm is below the elbow through the forearm, compensation awards for personal injury may be in the region of 50,000 through to 57,500 with claims at the upper end of this range being paid where the residual pain felt by the accident victim is greater.

Consideration will be given to whether the amputated arm is the dominant one and any compensation awarded for the personal injury will be higher if that is the case.

Of course, the award in any particular circumstances would depend on the specific injury suffered. If you require any advice or assistance about any claim you may wish to make for an ankle injury, Accident Aid would be pleased to hear from you.
