Losing a limb is traumatic and life-changing, affecting every aspect of someone's life and identity.
Our team of expert medical negligence solicitors understand that a compensation claim is part of a long period of readjustment and hard work towards rehabilitation and recovery.
We have assisted numerous amputees over the years in the UK and abroad, including transtibial (below the knee) and transfemoral (above the knee) amputees, and those suffering upper limb amputations of fingers, hands and arms. Read our case studies here.
For further information or if you believe you have an amputation claim, please contact any member of our medical negligence team directly.
We regularly host conferences and events to support amputees and to share information from leading practitioners in revolutionary treatments such as osseointegration and psychological therapy. Read our dedicated amputee claims brochure below.
Recovering your loss
As with all Fieldfisher personal injury claims, our solicitors fight tirelessly to recover the maximum compensation for all claims to provide financial security for you and family and to fund specialist rehabilitation to rebuild lives.
Helping you adjust following amputation
Adjusting to a new way of living involves practicalities such as adapted accommodation and prosthetics and often long-term physical and psychological therapies. Our solicitors will ensure you have the correct adjustments in place to achieve the best quality of life.
Our support includes:
- Physical and emotional rehabilitation
- Your move to suitably to adapted property or modifying existing property to ensure your safety and comfort
- Specialist equipment and services tailored to your abilities
- Regular care, support and assistance
- Medical treatment and private therapies
- The best prosthetic technologies including Osseointegration where appropriate
