Claiming injury compensation for amputation

If you have lost a limb in an accident that was not your fault, our experienced personal injury lawyers can help. Expert legal advice is essential in amputee cases; we will represent you throughout your claim to ensure your best interests remain at the very heart of the process at all times.

Whatever the cause of the accident, losing a limb is a traumatic event. Thankfully, modern medical techniques and appliances allow many amputees to resume a reasonably full life after their treatment and once their rehabilitation is complete.

At George Ide, we understand the stress and distress brought on by such a sudden and traumatic change in your life.

How can we help?

When appropriate, our independent, healthcare-trained case managers can assess, review and manage your care plan while our specialist personal injury lawyers negotiate the financial compensation you deserve. If required, we may be able to arrange for an interim payment to cover any early costs while you are undergoing the treatment, therapy and rehabilitation needed to restore your health.

We will also liaise with benefits specialists to review your entitlement to state benefits and make sure you get the full amount of financial support to which you are entitled while you are incapacitated – helping to offset any loss of earnings you may suffer as a consequence of your accident. And we are on your side when it comes to going back to work, whether you return to your old job or take up new employment – if after the accident you need vocational rehabilitation or retraining, we will vigorously pursue funds to cover your costs.
