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 all over 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.

We are panel solicitors for Limbless Association and worked in conjunction with Limbpower to produce a brochure that is available to amputees at all Limb Centres across the UK, providing them with valuable information on how to get the most out of their visit to their Limb Centre. 

Recovering your loss

As with all Fieldfisher medical negligence claims, our solicitors fight tirelessly to recover the maximum compensation possible for our clients as well as early interim payments and specialist rehabilitation where possible, in order to provide financial security and peace of mind for our clients and their family.

Helping you adjust following amputation
