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 Thumb Injury Claims

Where accidents lead to very serious injuries to the thumb, claims for personal injury should attract fairly high settlement sums. A claimant in a personal injury claim can expect to receive between 10,000 and 18,500 in claims where the thumb has been cut off at the base but has been grafted back on although the thumb is completely devoid of function. Clearly, in claims where the thumb has been severed and not been replaced or has been amputated, the accident victim may expect to receive payment in the same region.

Where accidents lead to less serious injury to the thumb, claims awards for personal injury may be settled in lthe bracket 6,500 to 8,750. In these claims, typically, the tip of the thumb may have been damaged and amputated or there has been serious nerve damage as a result of which the thumb becomes particularly sensitive and there is marked deterioration in grip strength.

Claims for personal injury to the thumb may be paid in a range between 2000 and 3,500 where there is some nerve damage but it is not quite as serious as in the upper bracket. There may be some effect on the sensation in the thumb and the grip strength will have been reduced. There will typically be cosmetic disfigurement in this bracket.

Accidents causing serious dislocation of the thumb may result in personal injury claims settlement awards between 2,000 and 3,500.

More minor injuries caused by accidents will result in lower levels of claims settlement. Accidents resulting in fractures of the thumb which heal without complications but where there is some residual stiffness which settles after a few months, should result in personal injury claims settlement in the region of 2,000. Even trivial injuries, which settle after a period during which there may have been pain and stiffness should result in claims settlement for about 1,000.

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.
