Workplace accidents are a fairly regular occurrence here in the U.K with hundreds and thousands happening each and every year. In some cases, these incidents can result in workers suffering from life-changing injuries.

The amount of compensation that you are entitled to after losing a leg

There are four main brackets that are associated with leg amputation compensation.

It is important that you are aware that these guidelines are the settlements that cover compensation for the injury only.

They do not include compensation that you may be entitled to for consequential losses, such as cover for time that you have had to take off work as a result of your condition.

The guidelines that our legal specialists have provided are as follows:

  • Below the knee amputation of one leg typically attracts compensation of £85,910 to £116,620
  • Above the knee amputation of one leg typically attracts compensation of £91,910 to £120,350
  • Below the knee amputation of both legs typically attracts compensation of £176,660 to £236,840
  • Loss of both legs typically attracts compensation of £211,150 to £247,280
