We have strong relationships with leading medical professionals and experts, so we can give you the very best advice about your amputation claim.
Coming to terms with an amputation
There are a number of injuries which may result in an amputation. These may be caused by medical negligence, accidents at work, slip and fall accidents, road traffic accidents and as a result of a criminal injury such as an assault.
Amputations affect different people in different ways. As dedicated personal injury lawyers, we appreciate that sometimes getting over the mental and emotional pain is harder than physical rehabilitation. We can put you in touch with a number of organisations that specialise in supporting amputees, helping you recover both emotionally and physically.
Some amputees may wish to have a prosthetic fitted to help them adjust to losing a limb. We work with experienced prosthetic providers and can put you in touch with the relevant parties to start the process.
Making an amputation claim
Our specialist personal injury lawyers are experts in dealing with amputation compensation claims and can talk through your situation with you over the phone, or face to face if you prefer. We can provide you with some initial free advice to help you decide if you wish to proceed with making a claim.
We understand that becoming an amputee is a confusing and difficult time for you and your family. That’s why we work hard to ensure your amputation claim is processed as easily and as stress free as possible, helping you move on from your injury.
In addition to the physical trauma, amputees may also suffer from side effects such as blood clots, heart problems, depression, anxiety and phantom limbs. Our expert team will ensure that your amputation claim takes into consideration any side effects and emotional distress.
No win no fee amputation compensation claims
Your amputation claim may be eligible for a no win no fee funding agreement, which means:
- If you win your case your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any legal costs not paid by your opponent and the lawyer’s success fee will be deducted from the compensation that you receive.
- If you lose your case, you won’t pay anything.
How long do I have to make an amputation claim?
You usually have three years from the date of the accident or knowing about your injury, to pursue a claim. There are some exceptions, which we can advise you on.
Speak to us as soon as you can, so our personal injury lawyers can start helping you through the process of claiming compensation and getting any other support you need.
How much compensation could I receive from an amputation claim?
Every injury is different, so it is important to get expert advice from lawyers who really understand the unique nature of each personal injury claim.
The amount you can claim following an amputation will depend on a number of factors, including any financial losses you have suffered or lifestyle changes you have made as a result. Our specialist personal injury solicitors have the experience to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
