We have a great deal of experience in dealing with military amputation claims, and our specialist solicitors are on hand every step of the way throughout the legal process to ensure we get the best result for you. We act on a no win, no fee basis, which means you will not have any additional financial concerns brought about by making a claim. 

Many loss of limb compensation claims are resolved with multi-million-pound settlements due to the fact that amputations almost always require medical discharge from the armed forces and therefore loss of earnings - including substantial benefits and pensions rights - are considered. 

Another factor that is considered during the legal process is the need for prosthesis and other aids and equipment, as well as rehabilitation, care and assistance following such an incident. 

We are committed to providing comprehensive, superior quality and practical legal advice, whatever your circumstances may be. We will take every detail of your injury into account and ensure you receive compensation to reflect this. 


What is life like after an amputation? 

A former soldier’s life can change dramatically following the amputation of a limb or digit. Aside from the psychological impact of such an event, many people suffer ongoing physical pain, as well as issues such as: 

  • Phantom limb pain
  • Contracture 
  • Necrosis 
  • Chronic neuroma 

Very often, amputees are unable to work all together and will require specially-adapted items to assist them in their day-to-day lives. The family home will also need to be adapted to ensure that the amputee is able to navigate it properly. 

Is there any advice available for amputees? 

Undergoing an amputation because of an incident that took place while serving in the armed forces will undoubtedly lead to psychological trauma for the person involved. However, gaining an understanding of what lies ahead can help individuals to prepare for what lies ahead.
