How our limb loss & amputation specialists can help

limb loss & amputation frequently asked questions

Yes, it is possible to bring a claim for prosthetics on a private basis, subject to a legal test of reasonableness. Our team of expert amputation solicitors will work with you to ensure that you receive the most advanced prosthetics suitable for your individual situation.  For some amputees, fitting a prosthetic limb or body part in the traditional way, without any permanent attachment to the body can be too difficult for them to manage. In these circumstances, the client may benefit from osseointegration. 
Osseointegration is a relatively new method that permanently attaches an artificial body part (the prosthesis) to the human body. It can be defined as the direct contact between the living bone and the surface of synthetic (often titanium based) implant.  We may be able to include osseointegration technology as part of your compensation claim. 
The true amount of compensation you can expect to be rewarded will depend entirely on your unique situation. It will depend on the limb loss, the number of amputations and extenuating factors such as loss of income, rehabilitation and home adaptations.
As above, your compensation does differ depending on the amputation and limb loss you’ve sustained. Medical experts will need to assess you in order to provide the information needed to determine your compensation, which your lawyer will share with you throughout your case.
As with any personal injury claim or medical negligence claim, the time limit for bringing an amputation compensation claim is three years from the date of your accident. To claim for a child under the age of 18, you have no time limit. However, once they turn 18 and they still haven’t claimed, they have three years from their birthday to do so.
