Amputation claims in Lincolnshire
If you or a member of your family have been seriously injured in an accident that has led to an amputation then you may be able to claim compensation for your pain and suffering, and any financial loss as a result of the accident.
If the accident was not your fault then we can help advise you on claiming against the negligent party, whether that is your employer, another road user or a land owner.
Personal injury claims are made against the insurers of the negligent party, as opposed to the negligent person themselves.
How long after an accident can I make a claim?
The law in England and Wales states that you have 3 years from the date of your accident in which to start a claim for compensation.
There are however some exceptions to this three year time limit, especially in cases involving children or people without the mental capacity to make a claim themselves.
We recommend clients contact us as soon as possible, to not risk falling foul of this 3 year claim period. Contact us today on 01507 609027 and we will be happy to advise you on whether you can make a claim.
Can I claim if I was at fault or partly at fault for the accident?
Sometimes accidents are not the fault of one single party. If you think you may have been partly to blame for the accident we still recommend you contact us to discuss the accident circumstances, as you still may be eligible to make a successful claim.
We have over 20 years of experience in dealing with all types of personal injury claims that involve amputations so will be able to give you a considered view on whether you will be able to make a successful claim for compensation.
How much can I claim?
The amount of compensation you can expect to receive for your amputation claim depends on a number of factors including the type of injury you have sustained, the severity of your injuries, how you recover, if you incurred any financial losses such as loss of earnings as a result of the accident and your employment prospects in the future.
The actual amount that you are able to claim for your pain and suffering is based on a set of national guidelines and fall into different bands.
The amounts set out below are based on figures published in the 15th edition of the Judicial College Guidelines for the assessment of damages in personal injury cases, published in November 2019.
- Amputation of both arms – £225,960 – £281,520
- Amputation of one arm at the shoulder – not less than £128,710
- Amputation of one arm below the elbow – £90,250 – £102,890
- Index, middle or ring finger amputation, leading to almost total loss of grip and dexterity – £58,100 – £85,170
- An amputation, severely affecting the hand – £27,220 – £58,100
- Total loss of a thumb – £33,330 – £51,460
In addition to financial compensation for your actual injury and pain and suffering, our amputation claim solicitors in Lincolnshire can also help you to claim for “special damages”, which usually include loss of earnings and the cost of medical care and rehabilitation. These “Special damages” can often increase the value of a claim significantly, with some claims worth hundreds of thousands or even millions of pounds.
Every amputation claim is different and you may be able to claim more or less than the examples above so contact us today to discuss your potential claim.
