Royds Withy King has specialist solicitors who are very experienced in dealing with amputation cases.
You may have had to undergo an amputation of one or more of your limbs or fingers following a traumatic impact resulting from an accident where somebody else was to blame. This might be a road traffic accident, accident in the workplace or it might be the unfortunate result of complications arising from what was thought to be less serious injury sustained in an accident. Royds Withy King’s specialist amputation lawyers will be able to guide you through the process of making a claim for compensation when you have suffered an amputation caused by an accident that was not your fault.
Our specialist team has excellent relations with leading rehabilitation and treatment experts in this field. We will consider your individual needs and instruct the appropriate medical experts to carry out an assessment. To help you receive the best possible care and rehabilitation, we may introduce you to a specialist occupational therapist, physiotherapist, case manager and/or prosthetist. We will seek guidance from specialist care experts who will advise on the care and equipment you will need to facilitate your independence. We have strong relations with architects who are experienced in assisting with personal injury claims and ensuring your home is adapted appropriately for your long term needs.
We can secure interim payments for you whilst we handle your compensation claim to ensure you are able to enjoy a high quality rehabilitation package. We will consider whether your future needs are better suited to one lump sum compensation payment or annual periodical payments and advise you accordingly.
