Injury Resulting in Amputation Claims

Amputation can have insurmountable emotional, psychological and physical effects on you and the people surrounding you.

There are two ways in which amputations may occur:

  • Surgical amputation

Where a body part is damaged badly in an accident or has developed a severe infection and requires an operation.

  • Traumatic amputation

Where an accident has occurred, and body parts are lost at the time of the incident. Many cases of this nature are caused by road traffic accidents or accidents at work.

Amputation claims can be highly complex, so seeking appropriate and comprehensive advice is essential.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are Amputation Claims calculated?

A personal injury claim can cover the cost of the prosthetic and make provisions for the ongoing maintenance of the limb. Sums may also be awarded for rehabilitation therapies, physiotherapy, and supportive equipment. There is no doubt that amputation can have a massive impact on a person’s physical and mental well-being, these issues which are often reflected in claims guidelines. Additionally, any required alterations that need to be made to your home or car, will also be taken into consideration depending on the claim. If your family is unable to provide you with enough care because of their own work commitments, then a carer may need to be employed. This will also be taken into consideration when calculating the compensation amount.

Will I have to wait until my claim is settled to receive prosthetics and other aids?

If liability is admitted at an early stage we will work with the Defendant’s Insurers to secure urgent treatment where possible.

How long do I have to make an amputation claim?

There is a standard time limit on all personal injury claims of three years. This will only change if you are claiming for your child who is under 18, claiming for someone who does not have the mental capacity to deal with their own claim or your incident happened abroad, this will depend on the laws of the country where this happened.

Will I have to go to court?
We can never say a case won’t go to trial or final hearing, but it’s unlikely. It’s often better if your case doesn’t go to trial as the issue of court proceedings, and the amount of work that goes into preparing and arguing your case, can considerably extend the time it takes to settle your claim. Whether it goes to trial or final hearing depends on your case’s prospects and the stance that the defendant takes.
