Amputation and limb damage explained

Limb injuries, particularly those leading to amputation, are very serious.While you can recover from most limb injuries, like broken arms or legs, other injuries lead to amputations, where soft tissue and blood vessels are damaged beyond repair.

These are common causes for an amputation:

  • A severe infection in your limb
  • Your limb has been affected by gangrene
  • A severe crush or blast wound
  • A deformation of your limb, which limits its movement and function

In such a severe situation, fast results are required:

  • Finding interim payments in advance of a final settlement
  • Securing the funding to pay for rehabilitation, on-going expenses and perhaps even specially adapted housing

Whether it is a limb injury or an amputation, if someone else's negligence has been involved, you should talk to an amputation and limb damage claims solicitors to receive the professional advice and support you deserve.

How will we pay for long-term care?

It's quite natural for the families and victims of a limb injury or amputation to worry about where the money for long-term care will come from. That's why the medical costs, as well as the cost of long-term care and aftercare over the victim's lifetime are factored into the calculation of the compensation settlement. We will make sure that the need for other expenses such as any necessary home modifications and the full cost of rehabilitation are included in your claim.

Can I claim for complications associated with my amputation?

If the injury or the complications were caused due to someone else's negligence, you may be able to claim for your pain and suffering alongside your claim for amputation compensation. According to the NHS, the most common complications are:

  • Heart complications such as heart attack
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
  • Complications with the wound healing
  • Pneumonia
  • Stump and “phantom limb” pain

We want to make sure that you receive compensation for all the troubles and complications you have to endure.

How much can I claim for limb damage and amputation?

It completely depends on your injury and the impact it has on your life. If the injury was caused due to someone else's negligence, leaving you with severe limb damage or amputation, your claim for pain and suffering could be worth several thousands of pounds.
