Compensation for this injury varies greatly. "Very Severe" injuries (£35,750 - £49,800) are where there is "soft-tissue damage resulting in deformity and risk that any future injury to the leg might necessitate a below-knee amputation". "Moderate" injuries (£9,800 - £19,000) include cases which result in "difficulty walking on uneven ground". "Modest" injuries (up to £9,800) are where a complete recovery is likely.
Compensation for this injury varies from "Most Serious" (in the region of £27,450) where the tendon is severed through to "Minor" injuries (£5,180 - £9,000) are where there is a feeling of "being unsure of ankle support".
The value of this award depends on whether both feet are lost (£121,000 - £144,000) or just one foot (£60,000 - £78,300). Then there is a range of awards from "Very Severe" (£60,000 - £78,300) where the injury must result in "permanent and severe pain" through to "Modest" (up to £9,800) such as a "simple metatarsal fracture". Perhaps David Beckham claimed when someone stood on his foot?
The value of this award depends on whether all toes lost (£26,100 - £40,000) or just the big toe (in the region of £22,350). Then there is a range of awards from "Severe" (£9,800 - £15,000) such as "severe crush injuries" not requiring amputation, through to "Moderate" (up to £6,850) for "straightforward fractures".
