If you’ve suffered an amputation as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, our personal injury solicitors specialising in amputation claims can advise you on claiming compensation for loss of limb.
Adjusting to life after an amputation
Amputation of a limb is a life-changing injury and one which involves a long process of readjustment.
Regardless of the type of amputation you’ve suffered, we’ll involve a specialist from the beginning of your amputation claim to get you the support, treatment and rehabilitation you need to make the fullest possible recovery.
If your amputation has resulted in a prolonged absence from work or an inability to continue your current career, you will be able to claim compensation for loss of earnings. We can also offer advice on benefits, re-training and and your rights in the workplace under the Equality Act.
Coming to terms with a loss of limb is hugely stressful. We’ll refer you to organisations offering support outside of the legal process, as well as to specialists for advice about prosthetics.
We understand that no amount of money can adequately compensate you for your psychological trauma and physical pain, but we can help you achieve the financial security you need to move on with your life.
