Experiencing an amputation in your lifetime will undoubtedly have a serious impact on you. If it has resulted from a serious injury or from medical negligence, then we can help you to make an amputation claim and get the compensation you need to adapt to your new way of living.
Who can make an amputation claim?
There are a number of known scenarios that have ultimately led to making an amputation claim. Some of these are:
- The result of a workplace accident
- The result of a crunch injury
- The result of a road accident
- The result of a laboratory accident
- The result of a military accident
- The result of serious medical negligence
Whatever the reason that may have caused your accident, having a limb amputated is clearly life changing. Getting the right compensation for you is important in order to move on with the next stage in your life. It is important to consider that the amount of time that an amputation claim could take can be dependent on a number of different factors relating to your accident. Generally, amputation claims can also only be reviewed once the original wound has fully healed. For this reason, it is sensible to be in discussions with legal professionals as soon as you feel able, so you can be supported throughout your recovery process and any unexpected events can be taken into account.
What can loss of limb compensation cover?
When you have suffered an injury, there are a number of different things that may cause you to fall into financial difficulty. When going through the amputation injury compensation claiming process, there are a number of practical things that will be considered when your compensation amount is being calculated, as well as compensation for physical pain. These are:
- Loss of income
Suffering from an injury that is as serious as this will clearly mean that you will not be able to work for a significant period of time. All of the potential earnings that you could have been making during this time will be estimated and calculated.
- Medical expenses
When dealing with a serious injury, you may find that there are unexpected expenses involved in finding the very best care. With an injury of this magnitude, there also needs to be considerations for mental health support. A loss of limb settlement will allow you to get the treatment and support that you need most.
- Assistive Equipment
After surgical amputation, you will likely need further surgeries, prosthetics, care and assistance, adaptations to your home, medical equipment such as crutches or a wheelchair and car adaptations.
