We understand how difficult life can get after a severe accident and how amputations have lifelong consequences.

We have the knowledge, experience and contacts (with barristers, medical and other experts, rehabilitation and case management providers etc) to provide a nuanced and holistic service to our military clients involved in incidents leading directly or indirectly to amputations. This allows us to provide a service which includes not only maximising compensation for injuries and losses, but also securing appropriate rehabilitation and support.

Many such claims conclude with multi-million pounds settlements as amputations will almost always lead to medical discharge from the Armed Forces and hence there can be very high value claims for losses of earnings and of the substantial benefits and pension rights received during/after military service.

In addition, there can be very substantial claims for prostheses and other aids and equipment, rehabilitation, therapies and care and assistance, accommodation provision and/or adaptation, mobility etc.

Gorvins’ experience in Amputation claims

As an acknowledged expert in the highly specialised field of military amputation claims Gary Boyd, head of our military claims team has conducted cases including ;

  • A claim for a soldier who underwent a below –knee amputation following the development of dystonia after an initial soft-tissue injury sustained during combat fitness training
  • A claim in relation to a below knee amputation carried out due to chronic pain flowing from an ankle inversion injury sustained on a military exercise followed by inadequate rest/ treatment
  • A criminal injuries claim for a soldier who had a below knee amputation following a serious assault
