    How to claim lost mobility compensation


    We rely on our legs on a daily basis, to get from A to B, to carry out our jobs and even to play with our kids. So it’s no surprise that lost mobility can affect your entire life and leave you depressed and anxious. You could lose use of your legs after an accident at work or in a public place, and if somebody else is to blame for your accident, you could claim lost mobility compensation.

    It won’t undo what has already been done, but it could help you and your family to move on from your life-changing accident and look forward to the future, with a personal injury settlement that could help you financially. Trust Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury lawyers to handle your claim on a 100% no win, no fee* basis – we’ve been in the industry for 15 years.

    Accidents leading to permanent disability

    You may have been left confined to a wheelchair for the rest of your life, or perhaps your loss of mobility is temporary – either way you could still make a claim for lost mobility compensation. But what type of accidents could lead to this type of injury?

    • Falls from height often lead to spinal, neck and leg injuries which could cause paralysis
    • A head injury, caused by a fall, objects falling from height or a car accident, could lead to loss of mobility
    • Car accidents, collapsing scaffolding at work or accidents involving heavy machinery or vehicles could cause crush injuries, leading to mobility loss.

    These types of serious injuries will usually mean spending time in hospital and you’ll need to take time off work – if you have been left permanently disabled then you may find you’re never able to work again. Medical treatment, rehabilitation, physiotherapy and adjustments to your home all cost money, and you could be struggling financially after taking time off work due to your accident. That’s why you should consider making a personal injury claim that could help you to get your life back on track.

    How much compensation will I receive?

    It’s impossible for us to say, as our personal injury team will assess each claim on an individual basis, taking into account the severity of your injuries, your prognosis for the future and any financial impact your accident has had on your life (such as loss of earnings). But you could find out whether you have a viable claim by getting in touch with our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500 for confidential, no-obligation advice.
