How Hadi Law can help you to rebuild your life after Amputation.
The word amputation refers to the removal of a body extremity. This can be done surgically or as the result of a trauma. There are over 5000 amputations carried out in the UK every year. Common body parts to suffer amputation include fingers, toes, hands, feet, arms and legs. Even an eye may need to be removed if badly injured.
If a body part has been badly damaged in an accident or suffers a serious infection it may need to be surgically amputated as a last resort if it cannot be saved.
During some serious accidents a body part may be literally torn off and this is classed as being an amputation caused by trauma. Accidents which sometimes lead to this type of amputation.
Amputation Case Specialists
We are Hadi Law Solicitors; one of the UK’s leading personal injury experts with many years of experience in achieving multi-million pound compensation awards for our clients.
If an accident or medical negligence caused your amputation, we’ll use our experience and knowledge to secure the highest possible level of compensation to support you for the long-term.
And whilst the early days following an amputation will inevitably focus on your physical and emotional healing, pain management and coming to terms with what has happened, you may still have money worries. Can you still cover the looming bills? Will you be able to return to work? How will you pay for adaptations needed to your house?
To help you, we organise early interim payments (advances on your final compensation award) from the other side’s insurers to cover your lost earnings and expenses, as well as anything to help you adjust to your new condition.
Our team of expert solicitors fight to secure the justice and compensation award that you deserve. What’s more, our help for you goes far beyond financial assistance.
