Thank you for your question.
£300 - £500 would be appropriate for an injury and aftermath as described by you.
Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Could you please explain how this is determined and why/how you have arrived at this figure please. What factors would make the figure higher?

Expert:  JGM replied 1 year ago.
This is determined on your description of the injury. I have arrived at the figure based on 30 years of experience in dealing with thousands of similar claims.
Factors that would make the figure higher would be a more serious injury or recovery complications.
However your own description of this presents as a minor injury, requiring little medical treatment and short term pain and discomfort.
