How much can I claim for a limb injury?

As you would expect, compensation payments for limb injuries and amputations vary greatly, as factors such as loss of mobility, loss of earnings and trauma suffered are all taken into account. However, our specialist solicitors fully understand the complexities and difficulties of every limb injury, and so will always seek to claim compensation that enables rehabilitation to begin at the earliest possible stage, and for you to get on with the rest of your life to the fullest extent possible.

Where there are future needs, such as house adaptations and modifications, rehabilitation and treatment as well as any loss of earnings, we will always factor those costs into your compensation claim.
