How much is a leg worth?

How much is a leg worth?

How much is one of your legs worth? As far as I'm concerned, both of my legs are priceless.

That's not how the Austrian medical and legal system sees things and they value a leg as little as £2,300 in fining a doctor for amputating a leg and will pay out as little as £4,200 in damages:

Surgeon who amputated wrong leg when doctor marked healthy limb is fined £2,300, Metro, 2nd of December 2021.

No amount of money is going to bring back a person's leg but this sort of payout is a complete and utter sham.

We now have a state of affairs in the UK that a person can be fined a maximum of £10,000 for repeatedly not wearing a mask, while a doctor can cut off the wrong leg and payout out £4,200. I've never heard of such a thing and damage payments should have started at £10million, at least.
