Leg Amputation Solicitors

Read our free guide to help victims understand what leg amputation is and how our trained solicitors can help you get the justice you deserve.

Leg amputations are some of the most serious injuries it is possible for you to suffer. Any accident or injury that leads to the loss of a limb is a major, traumatic event. They will take months or even years of rehabilitation. These kinds of accidents and injuries are life-altering. They can require a great deal of readjustment and changes to the way that you live your life.

These difficulties can also be associated with a significant financial cost. You are likely to be unable to work for a significant period of time. If you are unable to return to your previous job or career, you may also have to retrain, which might lead you to a less well-paid position than you had before. You may need to make modifications to your home and transportation. It is to ensure that you are still able to lead as much of a normal life as possible.

Do I Need To Use A Solicitor To Start A Leg Amputation Compensation Claim?

It is not essential to use a personal injury solicitor in order to make any personal injury compensation claim. The more complicated the case, however, the more important it can be to get expert advice from an experienced team of personal injury claims solicitors. Leg amputations are always extremely serious injuries. Therefore they can be very complicated cases. We strongly recommend getting legal advice before beginning your leg amputation compensation claim. If you are unsure about whether you need a personal injury solicitor to help with your claim, ask us. Call us on 0121 565 4317 or claim online. We will arrange a free, no-obligation consultation to help you decide how to proceed.

One of the major advantages of using a team of personal injury claims solicitors in your leg amputation compensation claim is that it allows you to be sure that you are getting the most appropriate amount of compensation for your accident or injury.

An estimate of the compensation amount

Judicial College (a national governing body) sets guidelines that show compensation amounts for particular injuries. The ranges are deliberately very wide, to allow for the huge variation in injuries and prognosis (getting better). For a leg amputation claim, this is likely to be within the range of £66,930 to £87,410 for the loss of one foot, all the way up to between £191,950 and £224,800 for the loss of both legs.

The other part of your compensation claim comes from the costs and losses you might suffer due to your accident. These might include having to make changes to your home (or even having to move to a new, more accessible, home). Also employing a carer to look after you and any other costs for your care and rehabilitation. If you are unable to work as a result of your leg amputation injury, or if you have to change careers, you may also be able to claim for loss of earnings and loss of potential future earnings. The purpose of this type of compensation is to help you to get your life back as close to where it would have been if you hadn’t experienced your life-altering accident and injury. We know that no amount of compensation will make up for your leg amputation, but we want to get you the best possible compensation payment to ensure that you are able to have as full a life as possible and to give you every chance to adapt to your new situation.

Get the appropriate amount of compensation

Using our team of expert personal injury solicitors allows you to know that you are getting the most appropriate amount of compensation for your leg amputation injury. In many cases, the amount of compensation you are able to claim on the advice of our expert personal injury solicitors is far greater than you might have claimed alone, and the difference far outweighs the legal costs necessary.

What If I Can’t Afford A Solicitor For My Leg Amputation Compensation Claim?

At Claim Justice, we believe that high legal fees shouldn’t restrict you from getting the compensation you deserve. This is why we offer our services on a no win no fee basis to the majority of our clients. This agreement means that don’t pay anything upfront. As soon as you sign the agreement, we are able to act on your behalf. You will only pay for our services once you receive the compensation you deserve. If we lose the case, you won’t have to pay anything. Many clients also worry that the legal fees they might incur could be higher than the amount of compensation. We will discuss our fees with you before starting any work. We only take a percentage of the final payment you receive. Please know that we won’t leave you worse off for trying to get the compensation you deserve.

How Do I Go About Making A Leg Amputation Personal Injury Claim?

We contact the responsible

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 organizations will accept liability immediately, especially if it is very clear how the accident or injury was their fault

If they dispute liability

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 upon. 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 take the case to court. This is very rare, however.

Negotiations

Once the other party agrees, it is necessary to conduct negotiations to agree on 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. We support you to make the best possible decision for you.

We may need to go to court

If the other party refuses to accept liability, you may go to court to explain your leg amputation injury claim. If this happens, we will be with you and supporting you throughout the process. We will make 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.

Payment. 

The final step is that you receive the compensation that has been agreed upon. This is the first time that you will have to pay any fees at all. Our fees come from a percentage of your payment. This means, if we fail to obtain the compensation you deserve, we will not leave you with any legal bills. It also means that we will leave you better off as a result of your successful leg amputation injury claim.
