How can our amputation solicitors help?

Limb loss or amputation following a road or work accident can be a devastating experience and will often have profound life-long consequences. These are among the most complex and challenging serious injury cases and are best dealt with by specialist lawyers who understand limb loss rehabilitation and cutting edge prosthetics and who work with the leading medical experts in the field.

Several of Osbornes’ serious injury lawyers specialise in amputation claim cases. Partner Robert Aylott and associate Kate Milton lead in this area.

Advocates for amputee rights

We’re a proud legal panel member of the Limbless Association, a leading national charity devoted to supporting and empowering amputees. We have seen at first hand the work they do through their volunteer mentoring schemes and monthly support and connect hubs, and the difference they make to people’s lives.

We share their belief in getting early intervention and the best care and support following an amputation.

Leading amputation lawyers

Our amputee clients usually come to us soon after the event, when they are dealing with the trauma of the accident and a life-changing injury. Our job will initially involve investigating the client’s rehabilitation needs, with the help of a specialist case manager and neurorehabilitation and prosthetics experts, to put in place a rehabilitation package, funded where possible by the third-party insurer.

That package will usually be multi-disciplinary, with input from physiotherapists and occupational therapists, prosthetists and orthotists, and usually psychologists, psychiatrists and pain management physicians.

Sometimes the extent of an existing client’s injuries are such that they later elect for surgical amputation, and in those cases, we may be able to assist by bringing that process within the ongoing rehabilitation plan to secure access to the necessary funding and pre and post-surgery support.

Alongside a rehabilitation package, we will engage some of the leading medico-legal experts to establish the long-term prognosis and build an evidence base to claim future needs and losses.

Ultimately the objective of the legal claim is to compensate the injured person: to put them back in the position they would have been before the accident, so far as money can do so.  In the case of amputees, that may mean securing funding for advanced osseointegration surgery or myoelectric prosthetics, custom-built cosmetic and sports limbs, assistive technology, future care and case management, medical treatments and therapies.

We’ve helped those who have become amputees following:

We know that the impact of your injury and the needs of you and your family will change over time. With this in mind, it is the aim of our lawyers to ensure you receive continuous support for your long term future. This future may mean not being able to return to a job you previously enjoyed. Your lawyer will take this into account when negotiating the financial aspect of your package.

If you have lost a limb due to someone else’s negligence, then you may be able to make a compensation claim. Find out how our team can help you after a loss of a limb.
