Make a claim

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.

Reasons For Amputation Claims

An amputation claim can arise from a number of very different circumstances, some of which are detailed below:

  • Medical or clinical negligence e.g. a delay in diagnosing an infection in the leg
  • A catastrophic accident at work e.g. involving fault machinery
  • Car accidents involving passengers and drivers, pedestrians
  • Motorcycle accidents

To everyone at First Personal Injury, I thank you all for all the hard work that you have put into my claim.

Long-Term Consequences Of Leg Amputation

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:

  • Phantom limb sensation
  • Stiffening and swelling
  • Soft tissue damage due to lack of blood supply
  • Persistent nerve pain
  • Psychological damage including depression and/or anxiety
  • Sleep disturbance

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.

Claiming For Amputation
