If you have been involved in an accident that has resulted in an amputation, you may be entitled to compensation if it was the fault of someone else. Our Personal Injury team has lawyers who are experts in dealing with such compensation claims.

Amputations can usually occur in two instances:

  • Surgical Amputations - If a body part has been badly damaged in an accident or suffers a serious infection it may need to be surgically amputated as a last resort if it cannot be saved. Amputations can sometimes be necessary after clinical negligence has occurred.
  • Traumatic amputations - During a serious accidents a body part may be forcibly detached and this is described as being an amputation caused by trauma.  Accidents which sometimes cause amputations can be road accidents, motorcycle accidents, cycling accidents or accidents at work caused by machinery.
