Amputation Compensation Claims

Serious injuries and accidents which lead to loss of a limb can be a very traumatic events, often resulting in the need for big readjustments to all aspects of one’s life. Beyond prostheses, there may be a need for physical and mental rehabilitation, adaptions to lifestyle and home, and readjustments of relationships with employers and loved ones.

We understand that these adjustments come at a significant personal and financial cost. Whether your injury is a result of a motor vehicle accident, work place accident or medical negligence, the experts at Shine Lawyers will ensure that this cost is compensated.

Amputation involving trauma

Traumatic amputations refer to the loss of a body part as a result of an accident or injury. Trauma is one of the leading causes of amputation, and is most often a result of a workplace injury involving heavy machinery, motor vehicle accident or exposure to combat and conflict. The immediacy and shock of such a life-altering event will often result in emotional trauma and, thus, the need for multi-faceted and holistic rehabilitation support.

Amputation involving diseases

Disease or infection is the most common causes of amputation. Peripheral arterial disease, which results in damage to or narrowing of the arteries often leads to poor blood circulation and may result in amputation. The often long road to surgery, and post-surgery recovery are emotionally and financially draining times for both the patient and their family. If the disease has progressed as a result of negligent or inadequate medical attention, we may be able to assist you.
