In this case study, we are going to look at the case of a broken toe settlement, where the claimant was awarded £12,000 in compensation following a toe fracture. The case concerns Mr C (as we will refer to him for privacy reasons), who was 41 at the time of the accident and 45 at the time that his claim was made. His accident occurred as he was riding his motorcycle on a main road at 65mph. He suffered a head-on collision when the defendant emerged from a side road, straight onto his path. Mr C was hit and was thrown from his motorcycle. He collided with the road and the defendant’s vehicle.
What injuries were sustained in this case?
After the accident, Mr C was tended to by the emergency services and taken to the closest hospital. At the hospital, Mr C was found to have injuries to his right foot, right ankle, right shoulder and multiple psychological injuries. His injuries to his right foot, mostly around his big toe, were the most severe.
These injuries included: A ‘smash’ fracture of the right great toe extending into the joint, a fracture of the medical side of the navicular bone, a fracture of the proximal phalanx of the right little toe, a fracture of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th metatarsal heads and a comminuted fracture of the anterior process of the OS calcis. Mr C had to spend a week in hospital as an inpatient. He had to undergo surgery for his right foot, and as a result, he has to spend six weeks on crutches and was unable to wear normal shoes during that time. After his discharge from the hospital, Mr C was also diagnosed as suffering from complex pain syndrome and degenerative changes that could lead to premature arthritis.
The results of these injuries had quite a considerable effect on Mr C’s quality of life. Prior to his accident, he had enjoyed plenty of physical activities including running, cycling and walking outdoors, which he could no longer partake in, after his injuries. Mr C worked as a Service Integrity Supervisor for the Royal Mail, which involved him spending lots of time his feet. Mr C’s employer updated his role so he could spend more time sitting down, and although this was helpful Mr C was concerned that his new disability would single him out for redundancy, as the Royal Mail was making cuts at the time. What’s more, Mr C was now no longer able to drive for long periods of time, as he couldn’t cope with the pressure of putting his foot on the accelerator for an extended period. This also affected his ability to do his job as he was required to drive for work. After this, Mr C had to undergo further treatment, including surgery.
How was the Case Concluded?
The Defendant who caused Mr C to have his collision admitted their fault early on in the case and interim payments were made to cover Mr C’s expenses. As the case progressed, Mr C’s legal team worked with pain experts and psychiatrists to gather evidence in support of Mr C’s claim. The case was due to go to trial in January 2014, however, in November 2013 both parties settled out of court. Mr C was awarded over £12,000 in compensation as his broken toe settlement.
No Win No Fee Broken Bone Compensation Claims

Luckily, Legal Expert works with solicitors that offer a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), popularly known as a No Win No Fee service. This means you will only pay the solicitors fee if your case is successful.
