Amputation compensation claims

Most limb loss claims can be dealt with on a no win no fee basis

We offer free legal advice without the jargon and we will assess your loss of limb claim free of charge. When we have reviewed the circumstances that led to the amputation, whether it was as a result of a road accident, work accident, medical negligence or a military accident, we will help you to understand if your claim has a fair chance of being awarded compensation.

The purpose of compensation is to minimise the impact that the injury has on your life and by assisting with your rehabilitation and recovery.

About amputation compensation claims

Amputation compensation claims are dealt with by our specialist team of Personal Injury Solicitors who are experts in securing compensation for victims of catastrophic injuries, and who have the experience and the compassion to understand what you are facing. Our specialist Solicitors also have the tenacity to secure compensation from insurance companies, the NHS and the Ministry of Defence.

Many amputation claims result in compensation settlements that include adaptions being made to home, office and vehicles, along with rehabilitation support and compensation for pain and suffering, medical treatments, prosthetics, rehabilitation aids, lost pay and out of pocket expenses.

Before the claim is settled we may be able to apply for interim payments of compensation to help you sooner rather than later, but in most cases we can only apply for you to receive Interim Payments after the other side has admitted liability (fault) for the incident that resulted in amputation.

In loss of limb claims where the other side deny liability for the amputation, your Personal Injury Solicitor can start litigation (the process of taking legal action) to secure a fair compensation settlement for you.

At Co-op Legal Services we want to ensure that you are properly looked after so we concentrate on you and your recovery as well as your claim. We know that the last thing you should concern yourself with is the costs of making a claim for compensation, this is why our no win no fee agreements offer peace of mind because if your claim is unsuccessful, there is no financial risk to you as all your legal fees will be covered*.

Whether you suffered the loss of a finger in an accident at work, or a life changing amputation injury due to a motorcycle accident, medical negligence or whilst serving in the armed forces; we can help you starting with free legal advice and a free assessment of your claim.

As part of a large ethical organisation we can ensure that you are fully supported throughout and beyond your claim, whatever injuries you are suffering from or your circumstances.
