Which Injuries Can Lead to Amputations?

Although rare, amputations can occur in a wide variety of ways. These include:

  • Road traffic accidents: such as car, lorry, and motorcycle accidents.
  • Industrial accidents: including those related to machinery and power tools.
  • Medical negligence: includes those caused by surgical errors, misdiagnosis of serious conditions like diabetes or cancer, incorrect treatment of fractures causing tissue damage, and a delay in treating severe acute injuries or conditions.
  • Electrocution: severe electrical injuries can lead to traumatic amputations.
  • Crush or blast injuries: these can deform the limb and cause severe damage.

If you have lost a limb following an accident that wasn’t your fault, no matter where it took place, you may be eligible to make a claim. At Capital Lawyers, amputation injury claim lawyers are able to handle all kinds of claims, securing the compensation you deserve. To find out if you’re eligible, contact us today.

Client case studies

With a 98% success rate, we have a great track record of clients receiving significant compensation awards. Here is one of our recent case studies:

Furniture giant contributes to settlement of £7,000 following claim by employee
Following an accident at work in 2018, a famous furniture company agreed to pay £3,500 to our client. A further £3,500 was paid by a haulage company. Our client reported being in a forklift truck accident at work. While inside a trailer that he was unloading, the floor of the trailer broke, which resulted in the client being injured. The furniture company initially denied liability, blaming the owner of the trailer, which had been making a delivery. However, they later agreed to meet 50% of our client’s claim, with the haulage company meeting the other 50%.

How Do You Make Amputation Injury Claims?

The process of making a no win, no fee claim with us couldn’t be simpler. We understand that you’re going through an immensely challenging time, which is why we keep things as hassle-free as possible, and we’ll guide you through each step at your own pace.

Here’s how the claim process works:

  1. Contact our amputation injury solicitors either by phone or via our website contact form.
  2. We’ll talk to you about your case to understand what took place and how your life has been affected by the injury.
  3. Once we understand the specifics, we can then estimate how much compensation you’re likely to be entitled to.
  4. If you decide to go ahead and make a claim, our amputation injury lawyers will begin working on your case, keeping you up to date on its progress regularly.
  5. If your case is successful, you will be issued with compensation. If it isn’t, you won’t have to pay a thing.

What Can Compensation Cover?

An amputation can affect so many different areas of your life, not to mention set you back a lot of money in treatment costs and travel expenses. Although compensation can’t change what happened, it can enable you to move forward with your life and begin to return to your ‘new normal’ much more easily, as well as provide additional financial support if you’re unable to return to work.

Here are some of the main costs that compensation can help with:

  • Treatment costs and travel expenses to attend appointments
  • The costs of ongoing care for the injury
  • Any necessary adaptations to your home
  • The supply of prosthetic limbs
  • The loss of earnings due to time off work
  • Loss of future earnings as a result of your injury

Frequently Asked Questions

Can amputation injury claims be made on behalf of a family member?

Yes, it’s possible to make a claim on behalf of a loved one. Contact our team, and we’ll talk you through the process.

How much compensation can you receive for losing a leg or arm?

As each and every case is different, it’s impossible to put a precise figure on how much you could be entitled to. However, amputation settlements can regularly exceed £100,000.

Is there a time limit to make a loss of limb claim?

As with most other types of personal injury claims, you’ll have three years to pursue compensation (from the date that the incident took place). However, in certain circumstances, this time limit can be extended.
