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 Knee Injury Compensation Claims

Where accident victims sustain any very serious knee injury such as serious damage to the ligaments, there may be a very lengthy treatment period with severe pain and lasting disability. Claims for personal injury compensation may be settled for between 36,000 and 50,000 in those circumstances.

Where the accident victim suffers a fracture of the leg which goes into the knee and which causes constant pain, loss of stability and freedom of movement with a resultant risk of osteoarthritis, compensation claims may be paid within the bracket 27,000 to 36,000.

Where the injuries are less serious but there is still a level of pain and discomfort and restrictions in stability or movement with a significant risk of degenerative changes on a longer-term basis perhaps as a result of knee damage, ligament damage or damage to the meniscus, a personal injury claimant would expect to receive between 14,000 and 22,250.

In claims for accidents that result in dislocation and the tearing of cartilage or meniscus and where there is minor instability, muscle wastage and mild disability, claims for personal injury compensation may be settled for between 7,750 and 14,000.

Finally, a personal injury compensation claimant would expect to receive up to 7,000 where the injuries are similar to those just described but are slightly less serious. In this bracket, there would not necessarily have been dislocation but, perhaps twisting or bruising resulting in similar kinds of injuries. Where the accident victim continues to suffer pain and discomfort, awards will be made at the upper end of the scale. On the other hand, where recovery is complete, claims will rarely exceed 3,000.

To make a claim either call Accident Aid on 0800 180 4780 or forward your query without any obligation to Accident Aid by email and you will be contacted by an accident injury lawyer who will advise as to whether you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injury and any other losses you may have sustained.
