Table of Contents


    Foot injuries can profoundly impact an individual’s life, affecting their mobility, well-being, and overall quality of life. When pursuing a foot injury claim in Ireland, it’s crucial to consider the various factors that influence the compensation awarded. These factors encompass the nature and severity of the injury, the individual’s age, the extent of medical treatment required, and the long-term consequences for their health, mobility, and psychological well-being.

    This summary provides an overview of the considerations and compensation brackets for foot injury claims based on the personal injuries guidelines in Ireland. Whether the injury is of a most severe nature resulting in permanent pain or a more minor nature with a potential for recovery, understanding these guidelines is essential. It’s important to recognise that each case is unique, and legal advice is indispensable in navigating the intricacies of the claims process effectively.

    Factors affecting foot injury claims

    Key considerations influencing the level of compensation for foot injuries, which may include

    1. Age
    2. Nature, severity, and duration of pain
    3. Extent of treatment required (e.g., surgery, physiotherapy, medication)
    4. Presence or risk of arthritis or limitation of movement
    5. Impact on daily life, sports, leisure activities, social and domestic life
    6. Effect on work
    7. Extent of scarring
    8. Psychological effects, including depression
    9. Prognosis

    Compensation amounts

    1. Most severe foot injuries

    Examples of injuries within this category, such as traumatic amputation of the forefoot with the risk of full amputation, substantial heel loss leading to mobility restrictions, and disabling conditions preventing ordinary shoe-wearing. Compensation range: €90,000-€150,000

    2. Severe foot injuries

    Injuries resulting in substantial mobility restriction or significant permanent pain, including conditions less severe than the most severe injuries. Compensation range: €80,000-€130,000

    Injuries resulting in continuing pain, including severe burns, scarring, and injuries with the risk of arthritis and prolonged treatment. Compensation range: €38,000-€75,000

    4. Moderate foot injuries

    Injuries like displaced metatarsal fractures leading to permanent deformity, continuing symptoms, and potential risks of osteoarthritis and surgery. Compensation range: €20,000-€45,000

    5. Minor foot injuries

    Relatively modest injuries, such as simple metatarsal fractures, ruptured ligaments, and puncture wounds.

    1. Recovery within two to five years without surgery
    2. Recovery between one and two years without surgery
    3. Recovery between six months and one year without surgery
    4. Recovery within six months without surgery

    Compensation range

    • €6,000-€12,000
