Value of Leg Injury Cases in Georgia

leg anatomy

Here we are talking about injuries below the hip all the way down to your foot. Hip injuries have their own page. Please keep in mind that when we are talking about case values, a lot of times a case has more than one body part injured. When handling and/or negotiating your case, we always look at each injury individually and then add them up to determine what we think is a fair and reasonable value of your case. We take the position that if you have multiple injuries, your case is worth more than the individual injuries because you are having to live with (i.e. pain & suffering) the cumulative effect of multiple injuries.

Value of Fractured or Broken Leg in Personal Injury Case

Awards and settlements for fractured legs can vary dramatically. I see broken leg type injuries in car accidents, construction accidents, and slip/trip and falls primarily. Things that can effect the value of a fractured or broken leg personal injury case include:

  • Whether the tibia, fibula, or femur is broken
  • Whether the fracture is opened or closed (i.e. breaking through the skin)
  • Whether the fracture is opened or closed (i.e. breaking through the skin)
  • Severity of fracture – cast only or rods and screws put into the bone; whether there is external hardware holding your leg together
  • Time missed from work – goes to your lost wages damages claim
  • Recovery – did you recover completely or do you have reduced range of motion
