We understand that a successful compensation claim following an amputation can’t turn back the clock but it can go a long way towards alleviating the financial and practical difficulties that you may be facing.
Compensation can help you regain your independence and help you and your family adjust to lifestyle changes as a result of your amputation.
We use our specialist amputation claims experience to make a real difference for our clients. We ensure our clients get the maximum compensation possible and facilitate access to the most appropriate and effective rehabilitation to get their life back on track.
Your amputation compensation claim will be tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. It is our aim to help you to get back to your pre-amputation lifestyle as far as you possible can.
We are here to listen to you, to support you and to understand your lifestyle requirements and what you want to achieve every day.
You may need adapted accommodation, a modified car, customised prosthetics and other bespoke mobility aids to make life easier following an amputation. You might want to return to pre-accident hobbies such as water sports, swimming, cycling or skiing and need the right prosthesis to do so. We will work with you to accomplish your aims.
An amputation compensation claim can also help you gain access to therapies and specialist rehabilitation facilities who offer support to you and your family. They can help to increase your self-confidence and support you through the psychological impact of your amputation, including phantom pain.

We have established relationships with amputation support organisations, prosthetic and rehabilitation experts. This enables us to have a strong understanding of amputation related challenges and how to tackle them, as well being up to date with the latest in prosthetic technology.
We also work closely with experts in the fields of orthopaedics, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, accommodation and care to implement the best, and most suited, amputee rehabilitation. We are here to provide help and support in the immediate and long term future.
You may not have to wait until the end of a successful amputation claim to receive financial assistance.
In certain cases, early financial assistance can be obtained to help cover financial losses incurred as a result of the amputation, for example as a result of not being able to work.
Early financial assistance can also help to pay for immediate needs such as rehabilitation, medical treatment, mobility aids, prosthetics and care.
Mr P instructed us to investigate a claim for medical negligence following an above knee amputation at his local hospital. According to our experts, if Mr P had received appropriate hospital treatment, he would have avoided the amputation.
We negotiated a substantial six figure compensation settlement for Mr P, despite the claim being denied.
“Finding myself in the dungeons of despair having lost my leg, my job, my self-respect, I was fortunate to be recommended Boyes Turner as a firm of solicitors that could help me…I send my own and my partner's heart filled thanks for the brilliant work they did, which helped through the last few years and secured us a more positive future.” Mr P
The compensation settlement has been life changing. Mr P has since purchased a suitable prosthesis and is adapting his home.
