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

Our military solicitors 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 seeking loss of limb compensation after being 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 loss of limb compensation 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.
