Very few injuries are as physically and psychologically damaging as an amputation. The loss of a limb is a traumatic and life-changing experience. It can affect your mobility and independence, hinder your ability to work, and make it impossible for you to do the things you previously enjoyed.
That’s why, if the amputation occurred due to the mistake of a medical professional, it’s worth getting in touch. You could be entitled to compensation, and our specialist amputation solicitors can help you to make a successful amputation claim and get the financial justice you deserve.

Hassle-free amputation compensation claims
Suffering an amputation due to medical negligence can be particularly devastating.
Aside from the initial shock of losing a limb, there are many long-term repercussions to deal with. It can take a long time to adjust to the amputation. And every aspect of your life is likely to be affected, from relationships and personal interests to your work status and finances. You may even be faced with hefty bills, for adaptations to your home, physiotherapy, prosthetics and more.
Unfortunately, we’re unable to turn back the clock and we can’t change what has already happened. But we can help with your amputation compensation claim – taking care of the legal side of things for you, whilst you focus on your rehabilitation and adapt to a different way of life.
We understand the magnitude of your injury and the severe impact it’s likely to have had. Which is why, we strive to make the claims process as easy and hassle-free as possible. We’ll simply listen to your case – including the medical events that led to the decision to amputate. And if you’re eligible, we’ll oversee the entire ‘loss of limb claim’ on your behalf. Getting your life back on track should be your priority. And with our help, it can be.
Claims for all types of amputation
Avoidable amputations can vary greatly in terms of their severity – from a single finger to an entire arm, leg (or both) – and they can arise due to a broad spectrum of medical mistakes.
Some of the most common include surgical errors and failure to diagnose and properly treat sepsis, meningitis, encephalitis, vascular disease, and cancer. But whatever the circumstances of your amputation, if it was caused by the negligence of a medical professional, we should be able to help.
In addition to our team of specialist amputation solicitors, we have access to a cohort of consultant insurers, medical negligence barristers and medics – who are all experts in this area. As such, we can assist with both upper- and lower-limb amputation claims, including (but not limited to):
- loss of a finger
- loss of an arm below the elbow
- loss of one or both arms
- loss of a big toe
- loss of all toes
- loss of one or both feet
- loss of one leg, above or below the knee
- loss of both legs below the knee
- loss of both legs
Our goal, ultimately, is to win the amputation compensation that you rightly deserve. And whatever the nature of the medical mistake – or the type of amputation you have sustained – we will apply our knowledge and experience, and do everything we can to achieve the best possible outcome.
