How much specie or money would be awarded to a pirate who lost their right leg?
In almost all cases, nothing. Ambulance-chasing lawyers did not
yet exist. Pirates were outlaws, so no Government ever felt obliged
to give them anything. Your captain would only say that this was an
occupational hazard. And since in those days the loss of a leg gave
you a 99.5% chance of losing your life in the next few days because
of gangrene, staying alive at all was probably the biggest reward a
pirate would get.
