Are you making a claim with Hackney accident claim solicitors after losing a limb?
When a serious accident occurs, people can suffer all types of injuries, including the loss of a limb. Whilst the accident itself may cause this injury, in some cases surgeons may be forced to amputate a limb if it has been badly damaged and they are unable to repair it effectively.
As this type of injury is so serious, patients are normally offered a wide range of help, both immediately after the incident and in the long term as well. Depending on which limb you’ve lost, you may need help carrying out specific tasks or you may need assistance with your mobility. In addition to receiving his help in hospital, you may also be able to access help at home once you’re discharged from in-patient care.
Whilst there is assistance available on the NHS, many people find that they need more care than is available to them free of charge. Although it is possible to pay for private nursing care or home help, this can be costly and many people are simply unable to afford to fund it.
However, if you were to make a compensation claim following your injury, with help from Hackney accident claim solicitors, you may find that you are able to fund the medical help and support you require.
When people are awarded compensation, after making a claim with Hackney accident claim solicitors, they can receive more than just compensation for their injuries. If they will lose income because of their injuries, or if their injuries have had a psychological effect as well as a physical one, their compensation can be increased accordingly.
When people lose a limb through illness or injury, the effect it can have on their lives means that they are often entitled to receive a significant amount of compensation. Whilst compensation won’t minimise your injuries, it can help you to cope and adapt to permanent injuries.
If your injury wasn’t your fault and it was caused by someone or something else, there’s every chance that you will be able to make a claim with help from Hackney accident claim solicitors. In general, claimants are advised to start their claims within three years of the incident occurring so you may want to contact Hackney accident claim solicitors sooner rather than later.
