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 Wrist Injury Claims
There is quite a large range within which compensation awards for wrist injury may be paid.
Of course, as with any other personal injury, the amount of compensation would depend upon the seriousness of the injury and the effect on the individual.
In personal injuries to the wrist where there is a complete loss of ability to use the joint, compensation awards would be expected to be in the region of £24,750 through to £31,000.
Where there is a large degree of disability but the accident victim still has some use of the wrist, compensation awards would be lower and within the bracket £12,750 to £20,000.
Where the injury to the wrist settles relatively quickly but there is a degree of permanent disability and some lasting pain and stiffness, a claimant should expect his claim to be paid between £6,500 and £12,750. Where wrist Injury heals completely with no residual disability, deformity or cosmetic effect, one should expect claims to be settled for between £4,000 and £5,000.
