General damages section 1 (k)
High-speed car and motor vehicle accidents often result in fractures to the leg and knee and a result of blunt force impact with an object such as the dashboard. The amount of general damages ie: non-economic loss depends on the nature of the injury and how it impacts a claimants lifestyle.

How will my compensation be calculated?
Each state in Australia has its own rules and regulations however a legal representative will consider:
- The severity of your broken leg
- your legal fees
- past and future lost earnings
- contributory negligence
- success fees (which are mandatory in some states)
- and the state your car accident took place
All of the things mentioned above are variables which will affect your final compensation amount.
