Undergoing an amputation is a life-changing experience, and we are continually inspired by the many people we work with who have suffered catastrophic injuries or medical conditions that resulted in amputation.
It is part of our ongoing commitment to raise awareness of the challenges faced by amputees, so we have recently explored the topic in detail to produce this e-book and answer the question: can we end amputee disability in 2018?
As well as speaking to Potter Rees Dolan’s specialists on the topic, we interviewed a number of prominent figures in the industry, and we asked the public for their views - all of which are included within this e-book.
If you are an amputee and want help or advice, get in touch with our expert team of personal injury lawyers. We are on hand to help you gain the compensation you need to live as comfortably as possible after such a traumatic event. Call us today on 0800 027 2557 or complete our online contact form.

The job was done efficiently and smoothly by Lesley and I will be recommending you to a friend of mine.

Hannah, thank you so, so much for the letter you sent and all the additions you helped with ever so much. In fact I really cannot stress enough how much I appreciate your input and giving your time- it’s beyond words.
Ms JP, London
My sister and I would like to take this opportunity to thank both Hannah and Potter Rees Dolan for your time and consideration regarding our case.
You have shown a depth of feeling towards us that we did not expect. Your support and guidance has been invaluable in as much as we have been able to grasp the complexities behind the pursuit of such a case, cause and effect and potential outcomes.
We still feel strongly that whilst the outcome may or may not have been the same, the diagnosis was delayed due to poor management and lack of pertinent diagnostic skills (lack of cytology). Furthermore, there was a failure of communication regarding the fast-track suspected ‘cancer’ status which clearly did not occur. As a consequence, he was robbed of any ability to receive chemotherapy/radiation at an earlier stage.
Taking all of this into consideration, the physical manifestation of the disease and its subsequent impact, we have decided to soldier on.
For us, his suffering and subsequent demise should not have happened in the manner in which it did. We greatly appreciate the link that you sent us and will be taking full advantage of it. We wish you well and success in all your future endeavors.

Over the years, we have struggled to get the help we need with our daughter's disabilities. At times it has been overwhelming and, as she has gotten older, we have had to face more and more challenges which have been very difficult. Over the last couple of years, Potter Rees Dolan have helped us tremendously and feel now we have a voice and all we want is for her to not have stress in her life. Peter Renshaw has made our Appeal easier to manage and a lot less stressful for us.
