Amputation Claims Recovery

Recovering from a amputation is difficult - Our free guide is here to help victims with the process of recovery and guidance on how to make a claim.

Amputations are some of the most serious accidents it is possible for you to suffer. The loss of all or part of a limb is without fail traumatic and difficult. Although there are a few cases where a body part can be reattached following an amputation, these cases are exceptional. In most cases, when we discus recovery from your amputation injury, we are referring to your overall recovery and adjustment to the situation you now find yourself in.

This recovery and adjustment is not easy, and often comes with a significant financial cost. This cost could be due to the need to acquire good quality prosthetics, an electric wheelchair or to make modifications to your home. This is where your compensation payment becomes essential. If you have been in an accident that wasn’t your fault and have suffered an amputation injury as a result, we want to help you get the compensation you need to make the best recovery possible.

If you would like more information about how we can help you get the compensation you need to finance your recovery from your amputation injury, or if you are ready to make a claim, call us on 0121 565 4317 or fill in our claims form to arrange your free, no obligation consultation. Our expert team of personal injury claims solicitors are ready to help you.

How Much Compensation Am I Likely To Receive For My Amputation?

Every compensation claim is unique, as it reflects the exact details of your personal situation. It is impossible to give an accurate figure, as this will almost always be dependent on the outcome of negotiations. It is possible to give a guideline figure, however, based on a number of factors.

Any compensation claim for personal injury, including amputation, is made up of two parts. The first is based on the specifics of your injury. The level of compensation payable as a result of different injuries is set nationally by the Judicial College. They give a broad range of values for compensation amounts for each injury, reflecting the fact that some broken legs (for example) are worse than others. Amputation injuries attract some of the highest amounts of compensation, as a reflection of the extremely serious nature of these life altering injuries. Our expert team of personal injury claims solicitors have years of experience in interpreting these guidelines and will be able to give you a much more accurate estimate than a simple online calculator.

The second part of the compensation due to you following amputation injury claim is more variable, as it is based on any costs and expenses you may have incurred as a result of your accident and injury. This would include having to make modifications to your home, increases in transportation costs or any expenses associated with reducing your recovery time such as physiotherapy or finding high quality prosthetics. Our claims team are highly experienced in making sure that we understand the full impact that your amputation injury has had on your life and ensuring that we include everything that you are entitled to in your amputation injury claim. This money is designed to help you get your life back on track and to help you complete your recovery after your amputation injury and we want to give you the best possible chance to get your life back to how it was.

What If I Can’t Afford To Make An Amputation Injury Claim To Help Fund My Recovery?

We understand that the period following an accident, especially one so serious as to lead to an amputation, can be a stressful and financially difficult time. We believe that justice for your amputation injury, and the help with your recovery that this represents, should not be dependent on your being able to make large, up front payments for expert legal advice. This is why we offer our services on a no win no fee basis to the majority of our clients. A no win no fee agreement allows us to act on your behalf without you having to pay anything up front. It also removes the risk and worry that comes from wondering how you might pay the legal fees if we are unable to get you the compensation you deserve. If we do not win your claim, you won’t have to pay anything. This means that you will never be left worse off because you made a work injury compensation claim.

The no win no fee agreement also means you don’t need to worry that your legal fees may exceed the amount of compensation you are awarded. With the traditional payment model for legal services, the costs associated with making your claim could quickly exceed the amount of compensation you are awarded, which doesn’t fit our idea of justice at all. Our no win no fee agreements cap our fees at a percentage of your compensation payment. This means that you can relax, knowing that you will always receive the lion’s share of the compensation you are awarded.

We are able to offer a no win no fee agreement to the vast majority of our clients, though there are some unusual cases where this is not possible, for example in cases of medical negligence. If you would like to find out whether your work injury compensation claim is eligible for our no win no fee agreement or if you have any other questions, call us on 0121 565 4317 or fill in our claims form.

How Do You Claim Compensation For A Amputation Injury?

Making a compensation claim for an amputation injury as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault is very straightforward. As with all personal injury compensation claims, we strongly advise that you obtain legal advice before beginning your claim. We offer our services on a no win no fee basis to the majority of our clients. This means that you won’t need to pay anything up front to make your amputation injury compensation claim to get the money you need to finance your recovery.

1. Once you have signed a no win no fee agreement with us, we are able to act on your behalf. This means that we will write to the person who was responsible for your accident, letting them know that you are making a compensation claim for your accident, asking them to accept liability for your accident (this is the legal term for them accepting that they were at fault) and giving them a deadline to reply. This is the start of the claim process. Some people or organisations will accept liability immediately, especially if it is very clear how the accident or injury was their fault. If this happens, we are able to move straight away to step 3. In many cases, however, the other party does not immediately accept that they were at fault. If this happens, we move to step 2.

2. If the other party does not accept liability for your accident, we will need to gather evidence to support your claim. This could be through obtaining pictures of the accident if you have any, witness statements, police reports or through obtaining testimony from industry experts as to whether the other party was taking sufficient care or not. Once we have gathered sufficient evidence, liability is almost always agreed. In the very rare situations where the other party does not accept liability, we will not be able to conduct any negotiations for compensation and will have to move to step 4. Otherwise, once liability has been agreed, we move to step 3.

3. Once the other party has been notified and liability has been agreed, it is necessary to conduct negotiations to agree how much compensation you are entitled to. The other party will often offer a much lower figure than you deserve initially, to see whether you might accept it and also to lower your expectations for the rest of the negotiations. Our expert team of personal injury solicitors will notify you of every offer the other party makes, and it is always your decision as to whether you choose to accept. We will give you the benefit of our experience, however, advising you as to whether we believe that an offer is fair or not. This way, you are in control of the process but still gain all of the support you need to make the best possible decision for you.

4. If we are unable to agree on a figure for compensation or if the other party refuses to accept liability, you may need to go to court to explain your amputation injury claim. If this happens, we will be with you and supporting you throughout the process, making sure that you are clear on what is happening at all times. It is worth stressing that this is very rare. The majority of cases are resolved long before they get anywhere near a courtroom.

5. Payment. The final step is that you receive the compensation that has been agreed. This is the first time that you will have to pay any fees at all, and our fees are set as a percentage of your payment. This means that, if we are not able to obtain the compensation you deserve, you will not be left with any legal bills. It also means that you will always be left better off as a result of your successful amputation injury claim.
