Amputation Compensation Claims
Whilst safety is often at the forefront of your mind, unfortunately accidents can happen at home or at work. Negligence or accidents leading to the loss of a limb largely involve heavy machinery at places such as building sites, farms and factories.
Should you experience the loss of a limb through a road traffic accident or accident at work and it was through no fault of your own, we will provide expert advice and guidance to help you and your loved ones cope during a difficult time.
Your claim for compensation may include:
- pain and suffering
- loss of earnings due to time off work
- future loss of earnings
- healthcare costs such as medical treatment, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and prescription costs
- adaptations to your home and lifestyle

Making an Amputation Claim
There’s absolutely no risk involved in inquiring about your position, or your claim, so it pays to speak with an expert. Ultimately, the only time you’ll end up paying for legal costs is if your case is successful – and even then you will only ever pay an agreed percentage of damages as a contribution to costs.
There is a time limit to make a claim, however, so it’s best to act as quickly as possible. Normally you have three years from the date of your treatment or from the date you realised your condition was a result of your treatment. If you were under the age of 18 when you received the treatment, you’ll have three years from your 18th birthday to make a claim.

If your case is successful, you will only be expected to pay a contribution to your solicitor’s fees once the case has been resolved. The costs paid are usually a percentage of the compensation awarded and will be agreed before your case is carried out.Find out more
