AFCS tariff

Hi all,

Sorry if this has been covered before but I know each case is different-

I’ve submitted a claim for an injury sustained back in 2017. Been doing my homework to try and work out how much roughly it would return if successful.
It was for a bit of a tasty break in my thumb, which took surgery and has left me with limited movement.

When they assess the claim, do they award for the orthopaedic injury alone or do they combine with the lasting ligament damage?

Any advice greatly appreciated, thanks!
 
How was the injury sustained?

Do you need further surgery?

Have you undergone any physio?
 
If you are eligible to claim you are probably looking at a tariff 15 (£1236) or Tariff 14 (£3090).

It was caused by becoming trapped within the rope that tied a military working horse to the wall, as it spooked and shot back.
Luckily just took the one surgery and a couple of months of physio after.

The follow up report at the time from the surgical consultant read that I’d get about half the movement back, which I sent off with the claim paperwork- not sure whether that holds any weight though. Thanks for the reply!
