Amputation claims are the kind requiring the skill and expertise of a qualified personal injury lawyer. A trained eye will be needed to assess the level of compensation essential for you to live as independent a life as possible.
A lot of amputees will need specialist care for the rest of their lives so it is important to consider the future and all implication in an amputation claim.
An amputation claim can arise from a number of very different circumstances, some of which are detailed below:

Some of the immediate and disabling implications of a single or double limb amputation are simple to understand, however, there are some other long-term symptoms which also affect people who have had an amputation:
The level of pain and loss of amenity related to any of these symptoms will be factored into your compensation amount as well as the loss of earnings and medical expenses you have had to pay for e.g. for the adaptation of your home.
If you have had a traumatic amputation or have had to have a limb amputated because of a medical mistake then you could potentially make a compensation claim. It could be the fault of your employer who has not carried out routine health and safety checks on machinery used in the workplace.
It could be a driver of another vehicle that collided with yours in a road traffic accident, or it could be a doctor who has made a wrong diagnosis which has resulted in having your limb amputated.
