Amputation Claims

(I was tasked with writing extensive copy for the Irwin Mitchell website)

Combining Commitment with Sensitivity

At Irwin Mitchell, we understand how deeply an amputation can affect all aspects of your life. Our specialist team of solicitors draws on years of experience in helping people get through what is often a hugely traumatic time. We do not stop at claiming compensation but make certain you are able to adjust to new circumstances following the loss of a limb.

We strive to win the best outcome for all our clients and are sure to use all the resources at our disposal to fight for your corner. We are well known for our understanding of the problems and potential pit-falls that can face you and your family due to amputation. Furthermore, we know what positive actions to take to help you reach physical, psychological and financial wellbeing.

Our lawyers have won the reputation of offering top-level professionalism and expertise, combined with commitment and sensitivity.

We always aim to make you our number one.

We Aim to Offer Full Satisfaction

It can be difficult to know where to turn when a loved one suffers an amputation. It can be a confusing and frustrating time. It is a time when much will have to be rearranged, from transport to home to activities. There is a chance that the amputee will have to change their job.

There is also the potential need for:

Rehabilitation or retraining
Adaptations to your property
Specialist equipment
Care support and assistance
Private medical treatment and therapy
Extensive prosthesis

Our experienced team of specialist amputation claim lawyers offers advice that is second to none. It is important to note that we also fight to secure compensation claims to fund you while your main claim is being worked on.

We pride ourselves on finding the delicate balance between a careful handling of a traumatic situation with a proactive philosophy that helps sort the various practicalities that arise after amputation.

We focus on a multi-tiered approach, providing legal advice, support and guidance to get you through a difficult situation.

  1. I have read a few of your articles and I find it refreshing to find a journalist whom is not only honest but a joy to read. So often journalists use "artist license" to embellish their articles that it makes it difficult for the reader to get at the truth. Yours however are easy and enjoyable to read. I wish there were more like you in the journalistic world.
