An amputation can have a devastating affect on an accident victim.

Could you be entitled to compensation?
Amputations can either occur during the accident itself (traumatic) or during surgery after the accident (surgical).
The removal of a limb can save your life, but it can also make it difficult once you recover from the accident. For many, an amputation can mean not being able to return to work, something that can have a detrimental affect on your household income. It can make everyday life difficult and rob you of the opportunity to pursue the things you love, and your loved ones may also struggle to come to terms with the repercussions. If you are facing all of this in addition to physical pain, discomfort and emotional distress because of someone else’s negligence, don’t just let them get away with it.
Amputations can occur as a result of numerous incidents; a car accident, a fall from a height at work, an unsafe product or faulty machinery. If you have been injured within the past three years, you could be one of the many people that make accident claims in South Ribble with our help.
The amount awarded in compensation will depend on a number of factors, but it is easy to get a rough idea of what you could be entitled to with our thirty-second claims calculator. This online tool will enable you to see a rough estimate of damages right away, without requiring you to come into an office for a consultation.
