Do I have a claim?

Undergoing an amputation because of someone else’s negligence is a physically and emotionally traumatic experience with long-term consequences.

Can I get compensation before my amputation claim is settled?

We understand that an amputation can have a wide-ranging, severe impact on you and your family in a number of ways. That’s why, where possible, we request interim payments, so you can get the care and support you need as soon as possible. 

What injuries lead to an amputation?

Amputations can occur for several unfortunate reasons, including road traffic accidents, accidents at work and medical negligence. 

In any of these cases, you have the right to compensation for your injury. Chat to us. We’ll help you on the road to recovery and maximise your compensation. 

How much compensation can I claim if I have lost a limb?

The amount of compensation you will receive for an amputation depends on several factors, including the limb you have lost, the number of limbs you have lost, and the emotional and physical trauma you have suffered as a result of your injury. 

When calculating your claim and listening to your story, we will consider the following: 

  • General damages: Financial payment for the pain and distress you have suffered due to your injury and the consequent amputation. This includes physical injuries, infections, phantom limb pain, and psychological issues such as anxiety and depression. 
  • Special damages: Payment for financial losses you have incurred because of your amputation. This includes loss of earnings, the cost of home and car modifications, prosthetics and ongoing medical care. 

While these variables make it difficult to suggest a compensation figure without knowing more about your claim, the compensation for an injury as severe as an amputation is likely to be significant. 

How much time do I have to make an amputation claim?

Generally speaking, you will have three years from the date of your accident to make a compensation claim. We recommend speaking to our team as quickly as possible after your injury.

Why do I need a lawyer?

Suffering an injury that wasn’t your fault is an emotionally challenging time for you and your family. Whether you can no longer have a normal life or you are experiencing loss of earnings, we believe that you deserve compensation for your suffering, and we’ll stand in your corner to help you get it. 

While the claims process can be complex, it’s our mission to simplify your journey to compensation. Our experienced experts have helped hundreds of people like you to get the full amount of payment they are entitled to.

Relevant FAQs

Your claim will be dealt with by a specialist team who will go through further information with you, they will go more in depth about the accident details and look to fight your side.

We will provide you with advice throughout as we always act in your best interest.

A solicitor would not deal with the whole case as we believe that we are able to progress the case more efficiently by having a team provide assistance to the claimant. However, a solicitor, or equally qualified person, will review the file and provide advice at key points.
