Understanding the bigger picture
Although we make securing the maximum possible compensation for your amputation injury our number one priority, Thompsons' Edinburgh based amputation lawyers understand the need to address the bigger picture.
This is why, in addition to helping you receive compensation, we are also committed to assisting you in securing the best care, the most appropriate treatments and rehabilitation therapies, and the breadth of support available. Sometimes this may involve seeking an interim sum of compensation to meet the most urgent needs. Such interim payments are only ever paid with the agreement of the defendant or their insurer and are used to relieve the immediate financial burden. We are also committed to helping you make a detailed analysis of your longer-term needs so that appropriate plans can be put into place for the future.
Areas where we may be able to assist include the following:
- Rehabilitation or retraining
- Home adaptations
- The provision of specialist equipment
- Occupational therapy
As such, whenever appropriate, we can help you take steps to establish a Personal Injury Trust for your long-term financial security.
Amputation lawyers in Edinburgh
Amputation injuries most commonly cause loss of the limbs. For example, the fingers, toes, hands, feet, arms or legs. However, other parts of the body may be affected, including the eye, tongue or genitals.
In cases where a limb has a chance of being saved, doctors are usually very reluctant to amputate unless there is a risk of much greater harm occurring without the amputation being carried out. The decision to amputate may be made a significant time after the initial injury is sustained.
Thompsons amputation compensation claim lawyers in Edinburgh can help you secure settlement for a catastrophic accident that has resulted in the loss of limb. This includes incidents of the following nature:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Machinery accidents
- Construction accidents
- Medical accidents
Regardless of the type of accident that caused it, the loss of a limb can be overwhelming and devastating. The experienced amputation lawyers at Thompsons' Edinburgh office can help you claim the compensation you deserve for your injuries, all on a No Win No Fee basis; this means that you have nothing to pay unless your case is a success.
