At Unite Legal Services, we believe that losing a limb shouldn’t mean you lose your independence.
Whether your accident is a result of a catastrophic injury or medical negligence, you are eligible to make a claim for amputation compensation. Sometimes an amputation is recommended after the initial incident or as a form of treatment.
Your Unite membership means that we campaign for the highest standards of protection for members at work, but we also offer legal advice and support if you, or a non-working family member, is seriously injured and has an amputation.
Through our experience of dealing with amputation compensation claims, we understand what support is needed for amputees and their family following an accident at work, on the roads, or medical negligence, and help them to rebuild their lives.
Our dedicated team of serious injury and medical negligence lawyers will make sure you are financially supported and will secure an interim payment to cover any immediate costs. We will ensure your amputation compensation covers the costs of medical expenses, as well as adaptations needed to your car and home, or to purchase new, more suitable accommodation. We will also help you to source cutting-edge prosthetics.
If you are a working Unite member who has had an amputation, we will support you in your return to work. And as part of your amputation claim, whether you are employed or not, we will ensure you have access to the very best rehabilitation and care, so you are physically and emotionally prepared for the future. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with amputation claims and work closely with charities and support groups.
