Getting you back on track after serious injury
How an amputation claim helps you to rebuild your life
Find justice. Get long-term support. Secure your future.
There are as many as 6000 amputations carried out in the UK every year. Behind every one, is a story.
There’s the man in his mid-twenties, his routine knee surgery went wrong. He now keeps his vacuum system and carbon fibre prosthetic leg near his bed, ready to put on each morning. That’s before he heads to one of the most dangerous rooms in the house—the bathroom—to lower himself into his shower seat, without incident, and then he’s eager for another day in work.
Or there’s the small child. She missed seven months of school, after she lost her arm in a car accident. She’s since returned and learned how to write again, only this time using her weaker hand. First, she had to endure her classmates’ reaction to her very different appearance, but with the help, of her caring Child Psychologist, she now looks forward to school every day.
The people in these stories, got the right financial, physical and emotional support. If you’re coping with an amputation, help is here for you too.
Amputation case specialists
We are Serious Injury Law; one of the UK’s leading serious injury experts with over 33 years’ experience in achieving high-value and, in many cases, multi-million pound compensation awards for our clients.
If an accident or medical negligence caused your amputation, we will use our experience and knowledge to secure the highest possible level of compensation, to support you for the long-term.
And whilst the early days, following an amputation, will inevitably focus on your physical and emotional healing, pain management and coming to terms with what has happened, you may still have money worries. Can you still cover the looming bills? Will you be able to return to work? How will you pay for adaptations needed to your house?
To help you, we organise early interim payments (advances on your final compensation award) from the other side’s insurers, to cover your lost earnings and expenses, as well as anything to help you adjust to your new condition.
Our team of expert Solicitors fight to secure the justice and compensation award that you deserve. What’s more, our help for you goes far beyond financial assistance.
Helping you beyond compensation
We put in place a complete service, that not only meets your immediate financial needs, but also looks after your long-term independence and wellbeing.
It includes access to private medical care, which may include required cosmetic surgery and skin grafts. We help to arrange a comprehensive rehabilitation programme, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, expert prosthetic input, Clinical Psychologists and Social Workers.
You get access to customised prosthetics and wheelchairs, as well as housing and vehicle adaptations, meaning that the impact of the amputation on your life is managed as carefully as possible.
It is a difficult journey, and there is no doubt that the first year, following an amputation, is tough. The team at Serious Injury Law will do all that we can, to take on as much of the strain as possible, allowing you to focus on your recovery.
Common amputation claim questions
Do you offer ‘No Win, No Fee’ arrangements in amputation cases?
Yes. Unlike many other law firms, we believe, that it is only fair, that you should get the maximum amount of compensation, for your pain, suffering, loss of amenity and financial losses—giving you every chance to get your life back on track.
I might have been partly to blame for my traumatic amputation. Can I still claim?
We have particular expertise, in difficult and shared liability cases, so that even if you are unsure whether you have a case, or if you think that you were partly to blame for what has happened, we will be able to advise your accordingly.
I’m worried about claiming against my employer. Will it affect my job?
Do not worry, your claim is not against your employer—it is against your employer’s insurance company. It is a system, put in place, to make sure that you get help, should anything happen to you.
