Losing a toe

Losing a toe can have a drastic impact on a victim’s day-to-day life. Balance can be lost and sometime even walking can become a massive strain. Amputations are among the most serious, traumatic and life-changing procedures that anyone can ever go through, and the physical and emotional strain can be enormous.

Accidents occur in many different ways, and sometimes they are unavoidable. But often, accidents can be prevented, and if they could have been prevented and still occur, then someone is to blame. If you have lost a toe due to someone else’s negligence, then you could be entitled to substantial compensation payment. Read on to find out more...

What sort of accidents/incidents could I claim for?
The rule is relatively simple. If blame can be attributed to a third party (whether it be a person, company or authority) then you could be entitled to make a claim. Toe amputations can be necessary as a result of a number of factors:

•    Clinical negligence
•    Road traffic accidents
•    Accidents at work (eg as a result of using dangerous machinery)

How much could I receive?

Compensation payments are awarded depending on a number of factors, including severity of injury, impact on quality of future life, recovery time and loss of earnings as a result.

While there is no distinct formula to say exactly how much you will be awarded in compensation, listed below is a guide to how much certain types of toe injuries could be compensated, based on past experiences and legal guidelines.

  • Amputation of all toes – up to £35,000
  • Amputation of the big toe - £20,000
  • Severe injuries that result in ongoing complications, but do not result in amputations – up to £9,000
  • Single toe fracture with reasonable recovery time – no more than £3,500
  • Toe fracture with recovery complications – up to £6,000
  • Bruising / other minor tissue injuries – no more than £3,500
