Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee*’ Wandsworth compensation claim after losing a limb?
If you have sustained an injury which has resulted in you undergoing major surgery or losing a limb, it’s likely that it will have a significant impact on your life as a whole. In some cases, when a serious accident occurs, people may experience severe injuries, including the severing of extremities, such as their fingers or toes. However, in other cases, they may simply experience damage and trauma to a particular limb. Whilst surgeons will often try and treat the injury, they are often forced to amputate the limb in order to save the patient’s life.
Losing a limb can be an extremely traumatic experience and many patients need assistance in order to cope with the physical and emotional challenges this type of injury brings. Fortunately, there are a range of counselling options available which patients can use if they feel the need to do so.
Often, when people are recovering from these types of injuries, they do need to make changes to their lives. If, for example, you have part of your leg amputation, you may struggle with your mobility and you may need assistance in order to get around. Unfortunately, many people find that it’s difficult to implement the practical changes in their lives. If, for example, you live in a high rise building or in a house with more than one storey, you may want to adapt your home so that you can navigate it more easily. Often, when people are able to make the appropriate adaptations to their properties, they are able to retain their independence and they can function perfectly well, despite their injuries.
However, some patients find that they are simply unable to fund the cost of such structural changes and they may struggle as a result. Whilst some organisations do offer financial support, this isn’t always available. If you have sustained this type of injury, you may want to consider making a ‘no win, no fee*’ Wandsworth compensation claim instead. As long as your injury was caused by someone or something else, you should be eligible to make a ‘no win, no fee*’ Wandsworth claim and you could be awarded a significant amount of compensation.
Of course, anyone who is recovering from serious injuries, may not feel up to making a ‘no win, no fee*’ Wandsworth compensation claim. However, making a claim doesn’t have to be difficult and your personal injury lawyers can often act on your behalf, once you advise them to do so.
