Amputation compensation claim

Feefo logo
Amputation Compensation Claims | No Win, No Fee

It is estimated there are around 5-6,000 major limb amputations every year in the UK. It goes without saying that the impact of amputation on a person’s life is significant.

Making an amputation compensation claim is very different from making a claim for other types of personal injury. Loss of limb claims are complex and you should, therefore, instruct a specialist amputation lawyer who has experience in handling these types of claims and can help with early treatment, rehabilitation and support.

Choosing a solicitor with experience in claiming compensation for amputations

It’s imperative that after an amputation, you speak to a solicitor with proven expertise in dealing with these claims, as well as demonstrating a compassionate and fully supportive approach.

  • From the first day, our focus is on doing what we can do to help meet our clients’ needs.
  • It is important that you are assessed by a clinical specialist to help with recommendations for treatment and rehabilitation. We look to use the claims process to gain access to early funding to help our clients access specialist support and rehabilitation to improve their independence.
  • Through the use of details case planning, we achieve great results in good time. Incorporating both legal and rehabilitation matters, resulting in fully integrated plans.

Support and treatment after an amputation

As an amputee, you will need to readjust the way you perform certain day to day tasks and the loss of a limb may also have an impact on the way you think and feel about life. It is important that alongside any treatment you receive for the physical side of your injury, you also receive the emotional support and counselling needed to come to terms with such a huge change.

Here at CFG Law, we have seen how daunting and stressful it can be when you, or a loved one, experience an amputation. We understand that clients want to get back to work and regain their life as quickly as possible. Our solicitors are compassionate and dedicated professionals who will help you to get your life back on track as quickly as possible. We also have specialist Client Support Managers who will help tailor a support, treatment and rehabilitation programme to help with a better quality of recovery.

Helping you adjust to life after an amputation

We will appoint a dedicated team lead by a senior solicitor to deal with your amputation claim. They will immediately get your case up and running and also have the resources and expertise to ensure that you have access to funding for early treatment, rehabilitation and support services from day one, to help with both your physical and emotional wellbeing.

Right from the start, we establish with our clients and their families their immediate needs and goals which we revisit and update as circumstances and priorities change. We do this to ensure that we focus on what our clients need and what is important to them.

We prepare integrated legal and rehabilitation case plans which we agree with our clients. Tasks are allocated to members of the team to ensure progress is made in respect of all aspects of the claim, working towards settlement at the earliest appropriate opportunity.

We also ensure that there are no financial risks to you or your family as all claims are handled on a no win no fee basis, meaning you don’t need to worry about the financial costs of claiming compensation. This means there’s nothing to pay should your claim be unsuccessful.
