Advice and representation for amputee cases.

George Ide LLP personal injury solicitors can help with advice and representation for compensation claims in amputee cases where the injury has been caused in an accident which was not the fault of the claimant.

Losing a limb is a traumatic event, however it happens, but, fortunately, with modern medical techniques and appliances, amputees can usually resume a reasonably full life once treatment and rehabilitation has finished.

Our independent case managers provide George Ide with a comprehensive assessment of a client’s needs which enables our solicitors to swiftly negotiate the payment of interim funds by the at-fault party’s insurers to ensure the best possible treatment and rehabilitation is provided as soon as possible.

Loss of earnings and other financial disadvantages from being disabled may be mitigated through a successful damages claim and the severity of the injury as well as the circumstances of the accident will determine the amount of compensation which can be sought from the person or organisation deemed at fault.

We can help clients obtain support with regard to state benefits and in retaining their job by pursuing funds for vocational rehabilitation or retraining costs.

With more than 30 years’ experience in helping personal injury claimants from Chichester and Bognor Regis and throughout the south of England, George Ide’s combination of professional expertise and straight-forward approach has benefited many people who have suffered non-medical amputation.

These include victims of road traffic accidents and work-related injury as well as servicemen who have suffered a military injury.

George Ide for amputee claims

If you are entitled to a damages settlement, one of the specialist personal injury lawyers at George Ide LLP will be pleased to advise you. If you are unable to travel to the office, home visits from a solicitor can be arranged.

Our specialist in this field is partner Claire Watson who has been involved in a number of high-profile claims after amputation accidents. Claire has been described by our clients as bringing a “personal touch” to her work and, in Chambers’ legal directory, as “friendly, sensitive” and “hugely talented with an impressively calm and clear approach”. Claire is proud of her achievements in this field and has worked for a client who, partly as a result of her efforts, has been fitted with a state-of-the-art myoelectric prosthetic limb.
