Expert Advice from Experienced Solicitors

Your injury claim will be allocated to an experienced personal injury lawyer who will establish a unique understanding of your individual circumstances and needs. We also understand the psychological impact, where many people who have suffered an amputation go through stages of anxiety and depression.

Injuries leading to amputation can occur in a variety of circumstances, including road traffic accidents, motorbike accidents, using machinery or being crushed by a falling object.

We will also arrange a home visit to allow our solicitors to fully understand the circumstances of the accident or injury in the most convenient setting for the injured person.

Arranging a rehabilitation and immediate needs assessment will then be one of the first things we do. We'll work with medical professionals and prosthetic rehabilitation experts to establish the immediate and ongoing needs to create a comprehensive claim that covers the cost of all current and future treatment and care.

The Limbless Association provides information and support to the limb-loss community. They offer support to individuals of any age, whether they are about to have an amputation or are already living with congenital or acquired limb-loss and offer assistance and information to carers, family members and friends.
