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.

Injury Claim

Any compensation claim for personal injury, including amputation, contains 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. It tells the fact that some broken legs (for example) are worse than others. Amputation injuries attract 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. They will give you a much more accurate estimate than a simple online calculator.

The second part of the compensation due to you following amputation claim recovery is more variable. It is based on any costs and expenses you may have incurred as a result of your accident and injury. This includes having modifications to your home, increases in transportation costs. It covers any expenses associated with reducing your recovery time such as physiotherapy or finding high quality prosthetic. Our claims team skillfully understand the full impact that your amputation injury has had on your life. We include everything that you can get to in your amputation injury claim. This money helps you get your life back on track. It also helps you complete your recovery after your amputation injury. We want to give you the best possible chance to get your life back to normal.

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, upfront 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 and you pay nothing. It also removes discomfort that comes from wondering how you might pay the legal fees if we are unable to get you the compensation you deserve. If we lose your claim, you won’t have to pay anything. This means that you will be at ease because you made a work injury compensation claim.

No Win No Fee Agreement

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.

Amputation Claims Recovery

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.

Steps to follow:

Step 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.

Step 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, when liability agrees.

Step 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.

Step 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 claims recovery. If this happens, we will support you throughout the process. We will 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.

Step 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. This fee is set as a percentage of your payment.  You will not be left with any legal bills if we fails to obtain the compensation you deserve. It also means that you will always be left better off as a result of your successful amputation claims recovery.
