Amputation claims

We understand how losing a limb following an accident at work or road traffic accident can have a devastating impact on your quality of life. We also know how important recovering compensation can be in helping you rehabilitate, adjust to an amputation and get your life back on track. Our specialist solicitors have many years of experience in representing clients and amputation claims and will ensure that you receive the maximum compensation that you are entitled to.

Amputation following serious trauma

A major cause of amputation is serious trauma, traumatic injury caused by a car accident or accident at work, in factories involving unguarded machinery or on construction sites. Over 55% of upper limb amputees are as a result of serious trauma. 

Another common reason for an amputation is a loss of blood supplied to the affected limb. This can be caused by severe burns or gunshot wounds causing injury to the blood vessels and/or other body tissue leaving no alternative other than amputation.

Effects of amputation

Amputation or limb loss can have extensive psychological, physical and financial impact on an individual and their family.

This may include the adaptation of a home, installing aids and equipment, getting used to any prosthesis and managing the psychological side effects of the amputation such as phantom limbing or phantom limb sensation.

Making an amputation claim 

Our solicitors can help you access the specialist care and services that you may need. 

In most cases, where liability for your accident is admitted, we will obtain an interim payment (some of your compensation paid early or on account) so that these immediate needs and services can be met and paid for whilst your claim continues. 

If you have suffered an amputation following an accident at work or road traffic accident and can prove that it was someone else’s fault you may be entitled to make a claim. Talk to our expert amputation claim solicitors confidentially and without any commitment or cost – email us at [email protected] or call us on freephone 0800 884 0719.
