Expert Advice from Experienced Solicitors

Your injury claim will be allocated to an experienced personal injury lawyer who will establish a unique understanding of your individual circumstances and needs. We also understand the psychological impact of amputation, which can cause those affected to go through periods of anxiety and depression.

Injuries leading to amputation can occur in a variety of circumstances, including road traffic accidents, motorbike accidents, using machinery or being crushed by a falling object.

We will also arrange a home visit to allow our solicitors to fully understand the circumstances of the accident or injury in the most convenient setting for the injured person.

Arranging a rehabilitation and immediate needs assessment will then be one of the first things we do. We'll work with medical professionals and prosthetic rehabilitation experts to establish the immediate and ongoing needs of our client to create a comprehensive claim that covers the cost of all current and future treatment and care.
