Calf Injury Claims

About Calf Injury Claims

Calf injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have suffered an injury to your calf due to an accident, a medical mistake or a developing condition for which for which somebody else was primarily to blame. Irrespective of how your injury was sustained, by making a successful claim for a calf injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time your injury occurred, the effect that the damaged calf has on your quality of life and any financial consequences of being incapacitated due to a calf injury.

Qualifying for Calf Injury Compensation

In order to qualify for calf injury compensation, calf injury claims have to show that you have sustained an injury to your calf and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a calf injury can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party is responsible for the damage to your calf through their negligent actions – or lack of actions – can often be more difficult.

Police reports or accident reports may need to be compiled and evidence gathered in support of your calf injury claim. At a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from an injured calf, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do and should not be made a priority before you have recovered from your calf injury.

Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making calf injury claims for compensation with a solicitor as soon as practically possible. A solicitor will assess your claim for a calf injury, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your calf injury claim and advise you if you have a claim for calf injury compensation which is worth your while to pursue.

How Much Compensation Will I Get for a Calf Injury?

How much compensation for a calf injury you will be entitled to receive will depend on your personal circumstances. A solicitor will calculate the value of your calf injury claim by considering the severity of the injury to your leg in relation to your age, sex and general state of health prior to the incident which was responsible for your damaged calf.

As mentioned above, the consequences of your calf injury and the effect it has on your quality of life will also be taken into account when compiling a claim for calf injury compensation. Along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still suffering from an injured leg, any quantifiable psychological consequences of the accident which led to your calf injury – for example any confidence issues you may have in the future – will also be integrated into your calf injury claim for compensation.

You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to your calf when making a claim for calf injury compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical attention following an accident which led to your calf injury, to additional transport costs if you are unable to drive while recovering from your damaged leg. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for calf injury compensation – including overtime and pension contributions.

Calf Injury “No Win, No Fee” Claims

Provided that your solicitor believes there is a strong likelihood of your claim for calf injury compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your calf injury claim on a “No Win, No Fee” basis. This usually means that, should you lose your claim for calf injury compensation, you will not owe your solicitor for their legal fees and, when your calf injury claim is successful, you will retain 100 percent of your compensation settlement.

However, not all solicitors offer calf injury “No Win, No Fee” claims on the same basis, and it may be necessary for you to take out an insurance policy to protect yourself from potential financial exposure should your claim for calf injury compensation be unsuccessful and you become liable for the defendant´s legal fees. Your solicitor should explain the exact terms and conditions of a calf injury “No Win, No Fee” claim prior to accepting your case.
