Have you lost a limb or had an amputation?
Losing a limb or suffering an amputation can change your life.
An injury of this kind can take away your independence and leave you unable to work. You might need to adapt your home and environment. You may require ongoing physiotherapy and counselling.
When you have an accident, you need the right help, tailored to your situation. If the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay for the consequences, or chase around trying to find the right specialist help.
How could claiming for an amputation or lost limb help you?
Losing a limb or suffering an amputation can cause huge distress and anxiety.
We appreciate that when you are seriously injured, life can become very stressful. Sometimes it can take a long time to recover from a traumatic accident, and during that time, you don’t need extra financial pressure. That’s why we are here to support you.
Some injuries are so serious that they cause permanent disability. Others need treatment in specialist rehabilitation units. If you have to take long periods away from work, you might find it difficult to keep up with the mortgage, rent or household bills. You may also have to depend on someone to help you. Claiming compensation could enable you and your family to cope.
If your injury happened in your workplace, and your employer could have done more to keep you safe, you’re likely to be able to claim substantial compensation for an injury of this type. By making a claim and flagging up hazardous working conditions, you might also help to protect others.
How much compensation could you claim for losing a limb?
An amputation or loss of limb can have a major effect on your life. Making a claim for your loss of limb can really help alleviate the pressures that result.
Financial settlements for amputees can be substantial. Each case is different, but we will work on your behalf to make sure you get the greatest degree of compensation to which you are entitled.
