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.
