Severed Limbs Compensation Claims Information
The event of losing a limb can be extremely distressing, both for the victim and those close to them, and can have devastating consequences that can, and most likely will, last a lifetime. Almost immediately, a normal, physically-mobile, able-bodied person becomes disabled: they may not be able to work in the current job, and they may experience significant phantom limb pain in addition to debilitating psychological stress. A person who experiences amputation often has to adjust to a whole new life an relearn fundamental skills.
If you have suffered a severed limb injury that wasn’t your fault, and you are no longer able to work, travel or socialise as you did previously, you may be entitled to make a claim for severed limb compensation.
What is a Severed Limb Injury?
A severed limb injury is when a person undergoes traumatic amputation, being the partial or total loss of a body part. This is usually a finger, toe, arm, or leg, that occurs as the result of an accident or injury. Amputation occurs when any limb or piece of the body is severed, either in an accident or in a planned surgery. An amputation can be partial or total, but in any instance, losing a limb can have devastating consequences. If you have suffered a severed limb and it wasn’t your fault, contact us today to claim the compensation you deserve.

What are the Most Common Types of Ankle Injury?
Spraining is a common ankle injury and happens when the muscles and tendons that surround the bone become overstretched. In more serious cases, those muscles and tendons can be torn, and surgery may be necessary to repair the damage. One of the immediate results of a sprained ankle is extreme pain followed by rapid swelling around the joint. It is important to keep weight off a sprained ankle until the swelling has gone as well as applying a cold surface to the wound as medical attention is sought.
