Amputation compensation amounts
The full amount of compensation you will receive for traumatic amputation injury or surgical amputation will depend on a number of factors. These may include:
- What part of the body has been amputated
- How much of the body part has been lost
- Effects of any psychological injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of earnings
- Cost of suitable prosthetics and ongoing maintenance/replacement
- Cost of ongoing care and rehabilitation
- Cost of home modifications
- The effect the injury will have on your life and employment prospects
No win no fee amputation claim process
We believe everyone who suffers due to another person's or organisation's negligence should have access to justice. Amputation claims are complex and require the knowledge and expertise of solicitors who are experienced in this field; this can therefore make them costly.
At Thompsons Solicitors in Scotland, our No Win No Fee package is available for most amputation claims and allows you to go ahead with the case in the knowledge that should the claim be unsuccessful, you will not be left with a bill for the costs.

How long will it take to get my amputation compensation?
The complex nature of amputation claims mean they can take many months and even years to settle fully. The long-term effects of an amputation may take some time to become apparent as you may need ongoing surgeries, rehabilitation and prosthetic adaptations throughout your post-injury journey.
Thompsons will be by your side the whole way through this journey and one of our main priorities will be to ensure that your most pressing financial needs will be met. When appropriate, we will request an interim payment of compensation to ensure you can receive early treatment, mobility aids, prostheses and rehabilitation therapies as soon as possible.
How will I get to the Thompsons' Dumfries office?
Wherever you live in the Dumfries and Galloway area, we will ensure you receive the support of an experienced solicitor who can come to you at home or visit you in hospital if necessary.
Much of our work can be carried out over the phone or via digital platforms such as Teams, Zoom, email, etc. so while we will always be happy to see you and your family members face-to-face in the office, we will be able to meet you and work on your case in the most appropriate place for you.
How does an amputation compensation claim work?
Amputation injuries, even minor ones such as the loss of a finger or toe, will have an irreversible impact on your life. As such, this type of claim, especially for loss of entire limbs, will involve significant work and numerous stages to ensure you receive the fullest amount of compensation possible.
You can find out about the entire process of making a claim on our dedicated Amputation Injury Claims Process page.
