Amputation Claim Specialists


We understand that amputation affects every aspect your life and that of your family as well, resulting in serious physical and emotional trauma.

We draw upon years of specialist experience to obtain compensation for people who have had an amputation as a result of someone else’s negligence. Our Solicitors are here to help you claim the compensation you deserve and achieve a sense of justice following your injury.

Oliver & Co are proud sponsors of the Amputation Foundation, who provide much-needed support to both amputees and medical professionals in the UK.

Compensation to support you through your recovery

We are committed to ensuring our clients receive the best possible care so they can fully adjust to life after losing a limb. Throughout the duration of your claim, we can help you access the best private care and equipment available, by securing interim payments to cover the cost of these much-needed items.

Examples of items that can be claimed for are:

  • State of the art prosthetics
  • Residential physiotherapy and occupational therapy to maximise the use of the prosthetics
  • Mobility aids
  • Car modifications
  • Professional care and domestic assistance
  • Home modifications and relocation costs
Types of accidents
  • Workplace accidents: Employers are legally required to provide staff with protective equipment, training and a safe working environment. We help many clients each year who have sustained serious injuries as a result of an accident at work.
  • Road traffic accidents: We are specialists in road traffic accident claims, and members of MASS (the Motor Accident Solicitors Society). Road traffic accidents can cause life-changing injuries, which can lead to amputation.
  • Slips and falls: Serious injury can be caused if you slip or trip on a pavement, wet floor, or in a variety of other circumstances. If a fall causes a serious fracture, this can lead to amputation.
  • Medical negligence: A limb may require amputation following surgical error, or a delayed or missed diagnosis by a medical professional. In these instances, our specialist team can help you to claim compensation.
No win no fee

All claims are dealt with on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis which means you do not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful and there are no hidden charges to be worried about.

Time limit for making a claim

You must make a claim within 3 years of the date of injury. If the injured person was a child at the time, they have 3 years from their 18th birthday to make a claim. It is very important you speak with a solicitor as soon as possible to investigate your accident and start your claim within the time limit. If you do not bring your claim within the 3-year period, your claim will be statute barred meaning you cannot then bring your claim.
