    How do I make an amputation claim?

    The first step in making a claim for amputation is to act quickly. An amputation claim must be made within three years of the injury, or within three years of you being made aware that you have been injured. You will need to get in touch with us, either via telephone, by dropping us an email or using our contact form above.

    We offer a free first initial consultation service where we’ll listen to your situation and then advise you on the next steps.

    • After you contact us, we will: Arrange for medical and other experts to see you and find out who is responsible for the accident. 
    • Investigate the circumstance of the accident and may instruct an accident reconstruction expert. If another party is fully or partly responsible then you can obtain compensation.
    • We understand that early compensation in the form of an interim payment is essential in such a life changing accident. A payment will assist with immediate bills, such as household expenses, that may be incurred whilst you are still recovering.
    • We also understand that early rehabilitation is essential to enable you to regain confidence and the level of activity that you held before the accident. We are able to put you in touch with specialist prosthetics experts as well to ensure that you get the best possible treatment at the right time.
    • Getting you back on track with your life is our number one priority. Specialist equipment and arranging particular care for your needs is something we are skilled at doing.

    We aim to make the whole claims process as easy as possible for you. From an initial free consultation through to fighting for your claim in court, we aim to support you at all times and make it as easy as possible for you to get back to living your life.
