Frequently asked questions about amputation claims

If you have lost a limb as a result of an injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to make an amputation compensation claim.

Contact our specialist amputation lawyers for free, no-obligation advice about whether you can make a claim.

There is a three-year limit on making an amputation claim. This means you have three years from the date of your accident to make a claim for loss of limb compensation, although there are some limited exceptions to this rule. We advise speaking to our amputation claims lawyers as soon as possible if you're thinking about starting a claim.

We have a range of funding options available to help fund your loss of limb claim. If you are a trade union member, your membership means that you get free legal advice and representation from our amputation claims lawyers.

If you are not a trade union member, there are other ways to fund your claim, including a conditional fee agreement, also known as ‘no win, no fee’. When you make a no win, no fee amputation claim, you will only pay legal fees if your claim is successful. Our amputation solicitors will explain all fees and charges to you before you decide if you want us to take your case forward – call 0800 0 224 224 to find out more about our fees.

The amount of compensation you can expect to receive depends on your individual case. However, you can rest assured that we will do all that we can to secure the maximum compensation we can get you.

When calculating your compensation, our expert lawyers will take into account the medical expenses and loss of earnings incurred, as well as the physical and emotional impact your injury and amputation have had on you and your family.

Your compensation claim will compensate you for any financial losses your injury has caused, as well as the emotional impact it has had on you and your family’s lives. This will include any financial losses incurred because you are unable to work or medical expenses you face as a result of being in and out of the hospital.

We’ll make sure you are compensated for any care needs and adaptations to your surroundings. At Thompsons, we work with leading charities and support groups to ensure you have access to the best care possible.

We understand the impact an amputation can have on you and your family. That’s why wherever possible, we will seek to secure an interim payment to help you cover the cost of any medical expenses or adaptations that need to be made to your home following your injury.
