How Much Compensation Is Usually Awarded?

This is only guidance on typical injury awards because there is no law or fixed rules that state how much compensation is to be awarded for a specific injury.

The award of compensation is tailor-made to the individual circumstances of the person who has suffered the accident and factors taken into account are their age, sex, severity of the injury, whether surgery is required, length of time taken to recover, and whether the injury results in a permanent disability or long term symptoms.

Compensation for personal injury is known as compensation for pain, injury and loss of amenity. In addition, you are also entitled to claim compensation for any financial losses or expenses caused to you as a result of the injury, such as lost wages, physiotherapy and medical fees, the cost of repairs to your bike, etc.
