Amputation compensation with expert personal injury solicitors in Chichester

An accident which has caused limb amputation is obviously traumatic and life-altering, and if the incident which caused the injury was not your fault, it is your civil right to claim compensation from the person, persons or organisation deemed to have caused it by their action, inaction or negligence.

In any claim for amputation compensation a great deal of importance should be placed on helping the personal injury claimant receive the best treatment, therapy and rehabilitation services possible. The solicitors at George Ide are highly experienced and successful in helping clients receive the best possible care from day one of instruction.

We work closely with independent, health-care trained case managers who can fully assess an amputee’s needs so that our personal injury solicitors can swiftly negotiate the payment of interim funds to enable ongoing treatment and to ensure the financial security of clients as they adjust to life with a recognised disability.

Although, the settlement of an amputation compensation claim cannot, in itself, restore the claimant to their pre-accident abilities or state of health, the expert team at George Ide can help the claimant seek the best possible outcome in terms of use of prosthetics and equipment to help with day-to-day life. We can even help claimants to secure costs for vocational retraining and home modifications.

George Ide LLP boasts several partners who specialise in this field and have worked on a number of high-profile claims. Partner Claire Watson has worked extensively in this field and has helped clients to gain the maximum compensation possible. She has also worked with a client who, partly as a result of Claire’s legal representation and calm, clear approach to the issues inherent in amputation claims, has been fitted with a state-of-the art myoelectric prosthetic limb.

We have also built up a relationship with a leading rehabilitation expert in the USA, Dr Todd Keiken, who can offer advanced techniques for amputee victims

Coming to terms with life after an amputation injury, whatever its nature, can be extremely difficult and George Ide has access to NHS and private practitioners who can offer counselling services for those clients who are finding the nature of their injuries particularly distressing and difficult to adjust to.
