Leg Amputation & Leg Injury Compensation Claims



A leg injury can be completely devastating, not only due to the pain, but also the temporary or permanent loss of mobility, or a life-long reduction in movement. This can affect not only your employment while you recover, but potentially your future employment if your job requires a lot of walking or standing. This can result in a reduction or complete loss of earnings, for which you deserve compensation.

If you or someone you love has suffered a leg injury and you believe that someone else is to blame, you can call the expert team of personal injury solicitors at Forbes today.

Types of leg injury

Leg injuries can be caused by a number of events including slips and trips, road accidents, sports accidents and workplace negligence. As the leg is so complex, these injuries can take many different forms and affect you and your life in different ways.

Knee injuries can seriously affect your mobility, leaving your knee stiff, sore or, in some cases, locked or frozen. Sprains can leave you in a lot of pain after a slip, trip or fall and can affect your movement. A torn ligament (including injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament), meanwhile, might require surgery and can cause bleeding in the joint. If your knee has been bent or twisted, this can cause a torn meniscus, where the cartilage in the joint rips.

Injuries to the upper leg, including the hip and thigh often come after a trip or fall, such as slipping on a wet floor or tripping on something inconveniently placed. These types of injuries can be very serious, particularly in older people, and can require rehabilitation, physiotherapy or even a hip replacement, which can mean extensive surgery.

Your lower leg - from your knee to your ankle - is particularly prone to injury because of its height and can be damaged by objects unnecessarily placed in your way, causing pain. Your ankles and feet in particular can be injured very seriously with sprains, fractures, breaks or damage to your tendons often requiring surgery and severely limiting your mobility.
