Value of Broken Leg or Broken Arm Cases

compensatory award for leg fractures is $141,847 according to Jury Verdict Research, a company that provides detailed statistics from jury verdicts.

The awards for leg fracture cases vary wildly depending upon the the type of accident and the type of leg fracture. For example, for a fibula or tibia fracture, the median recovery is approximately $85,000. Not surprisingly, that number more than doubles to $167,000 for a femur fracture which is a far more significant injury.

It is also worth remembering that the median is different from the average. The average femur fracture verdict is $482,273, which is certainly elevated by one verdict in excess of $4 million. The average tibia or fibula fracture is $265,882, aided by a verdict in excess of $4.5 million.

For multiple leg fracture cases, the mean and median verdicts rise to $596,618 and $192,762, respectively.

Here are a few other median verdicts relating to leg fracture cases:

  • Pedestrian - $125,000
  • Passenger - $ 97,333
  • Truck Accidents - $160,500
