When a member of the armed forces is involved in an accident while on duty one of the most common consequences is loss of limb. The personal injury solicitors at George Ide have a proven track record in the fields of both military accident claims and amputation claims and this experience can help ensure that any forces member who has suffered an amputation accident, which was not their fault or only partially their fault, will receive highly specialist legal representation from some of the most experienced solicitors in the South and, indeed, the UK.
Partner Claire Watson specialises in the field of amputation claims and has represented clients in a number of high-profile cases following loss of limb accidents. Claire is recognised by Chambers for her sensitive and friendly approach to work which is always conducted with a calm and clear approach. One of Claire’s particularly noteworthy amputation claims resulted in her client being fitted with a state-of-art myoelectric prosthetic limb which has helped the client enormously in her rehabilitation post-accident.
Paul Fretwell, partner at George Ide LLP, has experience in dealing with military accident claims and has acted for a client who was catastrophically injured in a military accident while on active service in Cyprus. Paul worked hard to maintain good relations with the defence solicitor at Treasury Solicitors and ultimately helped to gain his client a substantial settlement despite opposition from the MOD.
In all cases, our personal injury solicitors work closely with independent case managers who will liaise with the client to ensure he or she receives access to all appropriate treatments, rehabilitation therapies, prostheses and aids, plus help with such matters as finance and benefits, and the need for immediate living adjustments such as house alterations or finding suitable accommodation for disabled living.
The case managers’ findings ultimately help the solicitors fight for maximum compensation including, where appropriate, interim payments.
As amputation claims progress, if necessary, our personal injury solicitors can introduce clients to George Ide’s in-house investment advice team who can help amputation claimants set up a personal injury disability trust and to advise on all ongoing financial matters so as to help ensure the future financial security of our clients.
If you have been injured in a military accident and have suffered loss of limb as a result, the expert amputation claims solicitors at George Ide LLP are here to help fight your case for full compensation.
