What's My Claim Worth? Upper Leg Injuries- Dublin Personal Injury Solicitors

Upper leg injuries - *Personal Injury Solicitors Dublin

• €19,600 to €35,000 – minor fracture to femur – good recovery
• €26,700 to €60,000 – moderate fracture to femur – significant ongoing condition
• €49,200 to €79,800 – severe femur fracture (serious and permanent condition)*

The above is a guide/estimate only to what the value of a Personal Injury Claim may be for loss of upper leg. Remember each claim is unique and is assessed on its own merits. While the assessing of a claim is not an exact science, the following are a number of factors which may be considered when determining the value of a Personal Injury claim:

1. The nature and severity and the expected recovery time of the injuries sustained
2. The age, sex and occupation of the person making the claim
3. The medical cost associated with the injuries
4. Loss of earning and future loss of earnings as a result of the injuries sustained
5. Out of pocket expenses.

6. Whether the person who suffered injury contributed to the cause of the accident or injuries they sustained.
The idea of financially compensating a person that has suffered personal injury is nothing more than an attempt to put that person back into the position they were in prior to the incident that caused their injuries. Awards for Personal Injuries will therefore usually be broken down to include amounts of monies for different heads of losses, for example: an amount for pain and suffering or General Damages, loss of earning and out of pocket expenses. In most cases where a person decides to pursue a claim for Personal Injuries they will have to make an application to the Injuries Board.

*In contentious business, a Solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage proportion of any award or settlement.
