If you've suffered from a serious injury and needed surgical amputation you could claim compensation. We've helped many clients claim for amputations after being injured in:
Medical negligence accidents Road traffic accidents
Beyond compensation, we work with specialist prosthetics providers and rehabilitation experts who offer the latest developments in amputation treatment.
We’ll help you access the care and support you need to help adjust to life after the loss of a limb. You might need house adaptations to make things easier or advice on setting up a personal injury trust to protect your compensation - we can support you with whatever you need.
Can I Make A No Win No Fee Amputation Claim?
The majority of the amputation surgery claims we handle are made using
No Win No Fee agreements. This means you won't pay anything upfront and you won't have to pay any legal fees if your claim isn't successful*. How Long Do I Have To Make An Amputation Claim?
The time limit you have to make a claim will depend on a few different things. Everyone’s accident or illness is different but usually, you’ll have three years to make a claim. This changes if:
You’re claiming for your child who is under 18 – you can claim any time until they’re 18, then they can claim themselves until they turn 21
You’re claiming for someone who doesn’t have the mental capacity to deal with their own claim – there’s no time limit
You’re the victim of a violent crime - you’ll have two years to make a claim
Your accident happened abroad - the time limit will depend on the laws of the country where it happened.
It’s best to contact as soon as possible after your accident so we can hear your story and help you make a claim if you need to. Call us on [response tap number] today.
How Much Amputation Compensation Can I Claim?
To work out how much compensation you’ll get, our team will work to understand exactly how your amputation has changed your life. We’ll look at things like how much pain you’ve gone through and if you can continue to work or not. We’ll also ask medical experts what medical treatments you’ll need to recover from your amputation, and how much they’re likely to cost.
Everyone’s circumstances are different, but we’ll make sure your compensation covers your needs so you can rest assured you and your family will be financially secure.
