Losing a limb in an accident is devastating for everyone involved. You will be in pain from your injury but also trying to come to terms with your future circumstances after losing a limb. In addition, your family will also be concerned about your injury and your limb loss too, whilst also considering any practical changes which may need to be made in your home or at work.
This is a huge adjustment for you to make and the implications your injury will have on your life will be massive. We understand that this will be a difficult time for you, but if your accident was the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Why Should I Make A Personal Injury Claim?
Many people feel uncomfortable about making a claim for personal injury because of the allegations made by the media in England that there is a ‘Compensation Culture’ where people are claiming for money they do not deserve. However, losing a limb means you have a life changing injury which may affect your ability to continue in your chosen career and indeed live in the house you have chosen to. Compensation will never be able to make up for your loss, but it will be able to take the financial worry away while you focus on recovering.
Your compensation will also help you to obtain the best prosthetic limb possible which can be custom made to fit you rather than the standard fit prosthetic available on the NHS. If you need adaptations to your vehicle or your house or if you need to move house or change your vehicle as a result of your injury, your compensation will allow you to be able to do this without any concerns about how you will afford it.
In addition, you should be able to get an interim payment quite early on to allow you to concentrate on getting well again rather than worrying about how you will pay your bills.
