Suffering a loss of limb, or digits, in a work accident can be devastating. Not only are you likely to have suffered severe pain, hospitalisation and various surgical procedures, but your rehabilitation may be long and you may have to change your career, or perhaps stop working altogether depending on the extent of your injuries.
Here at George Ide, our team of experienced personal injury solicitors can help you receive maximum compensation for your injuries. We have acted successfully for a number of clients who have lost limbs in non-fault accidents and we believe our knowledge and expertise in this area can really make a difference to your claim.
Although there are many health and safety laws in place to protect employees from accidents in the workplace, personal injury solicitors are still called upon regularly to help workers make amputation claims.
Work-related loss of limb can occur as a result of a number of causes, including:
