Ankle, Feet & Toe Compensation Values
A large percentage of ankle injuries are awarded less than £15,000, but compensation for this type of claim can vary greatly. An injury is labelled as serious when the soft tissue is damaged, and there is potential for amputation. A typical payout of between £35,750 – £49,800 can be expected. A less serious injury which results in the claimant having trouble walking on uneven ground could be granted between £9,800 and £19,000 and a claimant who makes a full recovery can be rewarded up to £9,800.
Serious injuries, where the tendon is completely severed, can receive up to £27,450 compensation. At the other end of the scale, a claimant who has trouble putting weight on their ankle can be rewarded anywhere between £5,180 and £9,000.
If both of your feet are lost in an accident, claims range from £121,000 – £144,000. When just one of the feet is lost, anywhere between £60,000 – £78,300 can be awarded. If both feet are intact following an accident, a serious injury, one that results in permanent pain for the claimant can be rewarded between £60,000 – £78,300. A less severe injury, for instance a broken metatarsal, compensation of up to £9,800 can be rewarded.
If all toes are lost as a result of the accident, between £26,100 – £40,000 can be awarded. When just the big toe is lost, up to £22,350 can be claimed. When toes have been crushed, but don’t need to be amputated, a claimant can receive between £9,800 – £15,000 and for a simple fracture up to £6,850 can be expected.
