How do I make an amputation claim


How do I make an amputation claim

There are statutory time limits involved in making any personal injury claim, so it is important that you or a relative speaks to us as soon as possible so we can gather medical and financial evidence in support of your amputation claim.

Access Legal’s specialist lawyers will listen to you and give you and your family initial advice without any cost or obligation to use our services. We will happily visit you at home, in hospital or wherever else is convenient for you.

If you proceed with your claim, our immediate priority will be your health. If needed we can arrange early treatment, obtaining interim payments from the other side to fund any private medical care in order to ensure your needs are met as quickly as possible.

We will also arrange for medical experts to assess your injuries and prepare comprehensive reports in order to properly value your claim. If your injuries were caused by another motorist, your claim will be made against their insurance company. We can also help with amputation claims involving uninsured or untraceable drivers, obtaining settlement from the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB).

Any damages award will be based on loss of earnings since it is likely that your ability to work will be significantly affected, and all your other out of pocket expenses as well as remuneration for the pain or suffering you’ve experienced. The claim will also cover the need to fund any specialist equipment and prostheses or modifications to the home you may require as well as any ongoing therapy for as long as you need it.
