How Much Your Claim Could Be Worth

Because of all the variables that can be present in a personal injury claim, the value of the potential compensation payment will often differ a great deal between cases. As a result, we cannot give you an example figure in this article that would be accurate to all scenarios. What we can tell you is that injuries that are more severe tend to be awarded more in general damages. This is the sum that’s calculated and awarded to the injured party for their physical pain and also their mental suffering.

A publication called the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG) is used to come up with an appropriate figure. We’ve included some of these figures in the table below, to give you an idea of what some injuries could be worth.

Head/brain(c) Moderate - (ii) intellectual deficit, very reduced ability to work and risk of epilepsy developing£85,150 to £140,870
Post-traumatic stress disorder(d) Less severe - it will have only taken between 1-2 years for an almost complete recovery£3,710 to £7,680
Chest(d) an injury that causes some lasting tissue damage but has no ongoing effect on the function of the lung(s)£11,820 to £16,860
Kidney(a) Serious - damage of a permanent nature to both kidneys, including total loss of both£158,970 to £197,480
Neck(c) Minor - (iii) completely recovered in 3 months or lessUp to £2,300
Back(c) Minor - (iii) full recovery between 3 months and 2 years without the need for surgery£2,300 to £7,410
ShoulderClavicle fracture£4,830 to £11,490
Arm(b) Both arms completely lost£225,960 to £281,520
Arm(d) Simple forearm fractures£6,190 to £18,020
Wrist(e) Uncomplicated Colles’ fractureIn the region of £6,970

As mentioned in the introduction of this article, there are other things that can be covered in your final settlement amount apart from your pain and suffering. For example, you may have lost out on wages due to your inability to work, or maybe your property was damaged during the accident. If you have evidence of these losses and expenditures, then they could be included in your payment as what’s known as special damages.
