Have you had a limb amputated?

Amputation Compensation Claim

If you have lost a limb through another’s negligence, during medical surgery, in a vehicular accident or at work, you can launch a claim for compensation through our friendly team of personal injury solicitors. To learn more about the claim process for amputation please keep reading.

If you suffer either an amputation or a severe injury which leads to an amputation, you may need to make a slightly different plan for your personal injury case. While standard injuries are easier to recover from, unfortunately you will deal with your amputation for the rest of your life. This brings it into a serious injury category all of its own. You might suffer mentally as well as physically, and if the amputation is the result of another’s negligence, you should launch a compensation claim against them using our specialist solicitor to try and recover your costs. We work on a No Win No Fee basis but, more importantly, we will listen to you, answer your questions and give you free and impartial advice about your injury matter.

Took place within the last three years

    Do you need legal assistance?

    What makes a personal injury serious?

    Your personal injury claim is a serious injury if it affects you for a long time. Since amputation is a permanent injury, you will need ongoing medical treatment. A large loss claim changes your life. When you become seriously injured you will incur huge medical bills. If the accident was not your fault, you should not have to pay these. Our personal injury lawyer will help you get your money back and your claim may even stop the accident from happening to someone else.

    Sometimes named as a ‘catastrophic injury’, you can also file a claim for this on the behalf of a child under the age of 18 years.

    The costs of amputations

    Amputation costs are slightly different than a regular personal injury case because of the serious nature of the incident. Examples of the costs you might incur as an amputee include:

    • Costs of moving to a modified property or having special modifications made to your existing property
    • Potential for further amputations in the future
    • Your ongoing pain and suffering
    • Occupational therapy costs
    • The cost of your prosthetic limb
    • Appointments, travel costs, loss of earnings and loss of future income just as you might have with a less serious personal injury. On top of the costs of the amputation, these costs still apply.

    How to make a claim for an amputation

    Let our excellent personal injury solicitors help you. Filing an amputation claim must go through the court system and the opposite party will hire a lawyer to defend themselves against your case, so make sure you give yourself the best chance of success by hiring a specialist. You can rely on our experts to handle your compensation claim from beginning to end.  We will negotiate on your behalf, help you provide evidence and help you find specialists to treat your injury – all on a No Win No Fee basis.

    How much can a serious injury compensation claim earn?

    The situation and costs are different for each person. It is hard to put an exact price on your injury. Speak to our no win, no fee personal injury solicitors to discuss your case specifically. They are experienced in these cases and can give you an educated guess. We will ensure that you have free, impartial advice about claiming compensation.

    Your claim value is impacted by how bad the injury is, how much it interrupts your life, how much evidence there is, and all of the costs of amputation/s. If, for example, you can no longer work because of your injury, your claim will include that extra income loss.
