More about amputation claims

Every amputation solicitor in Access Legal’s specialist personal injury team knows that securing rehabilitation support at the earliest possible time after an amputation is crucial. We have helped hundreds of amputees regain their independence, self-esteem and mobility and given them renewed confidence to face an often uncertain future.

Wherever possible we use the Rehabilitation Code to access early support to address the obvious and less apparent physical and psychological complications that amputees can suffer, such as phantom limb pain or the psychological impact of losing a limb.

The Rehabilitation Code was developed jointly between insurers and solicitors to promote co-operation and is supported by all the main associations for insurers and personal injury lawyers in the UK.

The Code maintains that ensuring and improving your quality of life should be the first priority of your solicitor and should also be the aim of your opponent's insurance company. The code is designed to promote the use of rehabilitation and early intervention in the claims process so that you make the best and quickest possible recovery.

That’s why Access Legal will take the lead in assessing your medical and financial needs and make sure any immediate needs are met by securing interim payments as required and negotiating the best possible award to enable continuing treatment, support and assistance for the rest of your life.

We will work with you and your family to understand your individual case, identify your individual needs and help you gain access to tailored rehabilitation so that you can return, as much as possible, to independent living.
