Back Injury Compensation Claim Amount Guide Released by Camps Solicitors


Back injuries are a serious matter at the best of times. They are also one of the most common injuries suffered in non-fault accidents. Average compensation amounts for such injuries are discussed below.

Whilst judging compensation amounts is entirely dependent on the individual circumstances of each individual’s accident, publications such as the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines give some idea of the likely level of compensation a particular injury will attract.

Minor back injury – between £1,000 and £8,000

Minor back injuries can be sustained as a result of a car crash and many other non-fault accidents. For such injuries it is likely a claim will be worth somewhere between £1,000 and £8,000. The vast majority of people who make back injury compensation claims have injuries valued within this range. The precise amount would depend on recovery time from the injury. For injuries taking less than 2 years to fully recover the amount of compensation would usually be under £5,000.

Moderately severe back injuries – in the region of £8,000 to £24,750

Moderately severe back injuries could be worth somewhere in the region of £8,000 to £24,750. These injuries might include crushing fractures of the lumbar vertebrae which could a person at an increased risk of osteoarthritis and constant pain or another injury such as a prolapsed disc or traumatic spondylolisthesis.

Severe back injuries – usually upwards of £24,750.

Severe back injuries would usually receive upwards of £24,750. This figure relates to such back injuries as fractured discs where, despite treatment, the person is still suffering from continuous pain and discomfort as well as impaired movement.

Exceptionally serious cases – between £64,250 and £108,000

The very highest levels of compensation for exceptionally serious cases, between £64,250 and £108,000. This amount would only be awarded for very severe injury. For example, a back injury that has left the victim doubly incontinent or impotent.
