Amputation Claims

If you have suffered a personal injury that resulted in a limb being amputated, the expert solicitors at Potter Rees Dolan are here to help you claim the compensation you deserve following your traumatic experience.

We have worked with many amputation victims and have seen first-hand how distressing the experience is, and how difficult the trauma of losing a limb is to overcome. Our specialist personal injury solicitors are highly experienced in helping amputees to gain the compensation they need to re-adjust to their new circumstances.

By working with Potter Rees Dolan, you will have peace of mind knowing that your case is in the best possible hands.

What injuries can lead to loss of limb claims?

Amputation may be considered or carried out for a wide range of reasons, including:

  • Serious trauma, such as a crush or blast injury, or severe burns
  • Degloving injuries
  • Complications of diabetes
  • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) - a build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries that severely restricts blood flow to the legs, causing critical limb ischemia (CLI)
  • Serious infections
  • Buerger’s disease
  • Certain bone or skin cancers
