How we can help
Suffering a traumatic injury or medical condition that results in the loss of a limb is life-changing. This is particularly tragic when the injury or condition leading to the amputation could have been avoided. If this is the case, we may be able to help you claim compensation.
We have specialist lawyers who advise clients who have suffered limb loss because of:
• Medical negligence
• Road collisions
• Accidents at work
• Military accidents, both on and off duty as part of the claim.
We will consider your individual situation and needs following your injury including:
• Care, support and assistance;
• Private medical treatment and therapies;
• Adaptations needed to your property; and
• Specialist equipment.
From the outset, our experienced team will advise you on the claims process, making it as straightforward as possible for you and will provide you with regular updates throughout your case. We will also work to get some of your compensation paid early – known as interim payments – so that your immediate needs can be met whilst the claim continues.

We are also able to offer immediate financial assistance through the Hugh James Emergency Fund which might help you to fund travel expenses or accommodation costs for your family whilst you are in the hospital. Find out more.
Hugh James Major Trauma Service
Patients and their families often need immediate practical advice, help and support following life-changing incidents. This cannot always easily be provided by the medical staff at the hospital due to other pressures they face and time constraints. Hugh James offers a specialist service where our lawyers work in partnership with medical professionals to identify a patient’s needs and deal with the challenges they face in the early days.
