Lower Limb Injury Claims
The term lower limb injury refers to injuries to the hips, legs, knees, ankles and feet. These can range from sprains and ligament damage, to broken and fractured bones, and amputations. The consequence of any lower limb injury can be considerable because it affects your mobility and so immediately impacts on your day-to-day activities. You may no longer be able to move freely around your home, you may struggle to get up and down stairs, you might not be able drive or use public transport, and you might not be able to work.
Where the injury is minor, say a soft tissue injury such as a sprained ankle or sore knee, then recovery could be relatively quick, perhaps lasting no more than a few weeks or months and causing little disruption. A more serious injury, such as a broken ankle, a fractured femur, or knee ligament damage may require surgery, immobilisation in plaster, and a course of physiotherapy before a full recovery is achieved. Even without complications the recovery period could be lengthy, say several months to a year, and may necessitate a period of absence from work.
A life changing injury, such as a limb amputation, will require specialist intervention and treatment, with physiotherapy and the fitting of a prosthetic limb continuing for many months after the accident. In addition, there may need to be adaptations to your home, your car and your place of work as a result.

How long will my claim take?
The length of time it takes to settle lower limb injury claims depends on 3 factors; whether the other party admits they were at fault, the severity of your injuries, and the amount and complexity of your losses and expenses. A straightforward lower limb injury claim can be settled within 3 months but generally the more serious the injury the longer it will take to settle your claim.
