Limb injuries in road traffic accidents
Road users owe all other road users a duty to take reasonable care not to cause them injury. “Road user” includes not only motorists, but cyclists, motorcyclists, passengers, and pedestrians.
If someone breaches their duty of care to you, such as driving while using a mobile phone or driving carelessly or recklessly, and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to make a negligence claim.
Limb injuries in the workplace
Your employer has a legal duty to keep you safe from harm. If your employer breaches this duty, for example by failing to comply with or implement health & safety procedures, they can be held liable if you suffer an injury as a result. Common workplace injuries include:
- Faulty or unsafe machinery
- Falling from a height
- Wet or uneven flooring
- Poor lighting resulting in trips or falls
- Tripping or falling on stairs
Limb injuries in public places
Limb injuries occur in public places where the owners or occupiers of the space have failed to keep the area free of hazards. Common injuries often involve slips, trips, and falls as a result of dangers like wet or uneven flooring, poor lighting, faulty handrails, broken stairs, or objects causing trip-hazards.
If you’ve had an accident in a public place, including supermarkets, shopping centres, parks, train stations, town centres, and leisure centres, we can help you take legal action against the owner or occupier responsible.
In the vast majority of cases, doctors and other medical professionals uphold rigorous standards of care to ensure their patients are diagnosed and treated quickly and appropriately. However, unfortunately, in some circumstances these standards slip, sometimes resulting in injuries which can range from inconvenient to life-changing.
If you’ve suffered a limb injury and you suspect it is due to the negligence of a medical professional, we can help you claim compensation. Some examples of negligence include:
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, for example, a doctor missing the signs of sepsis resulting in amputation
- Poor management of conditions such as diabetes which results in limb injury and amputation
- Injuries during surgery, such as severe limb compression resulting in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
How do No Win No Fee claims work?
We understand that the idea of starting a limb injury compensation claim can be daunting and that you are probably concerned about the costs involved, particularly if you’re currently unable to work due to your condition.
That’s why we offer most of our clients our legal services on a No Win No Fee basis. No Win No Fee Agreements (also known as Conditional Fee Agreements) allow you to make a compensation claim with no financial risk to yourself.
You won’t pay any of our fees upfront; in fact, you’ll only pay some legal fees if you win your case, the majority of which we’ll seek to recover from the defendant.
We offer a free initial consultation for all new clients to discuss your case and our No Win No Fee Agreement structure. We can also discuss alternative fee arrangements if necessary (such as obtaining funding from your legal expenses insurer or trade union). Get in touch to set up your initial appointment today.
How much compensation can you get for a limb injury?
The amount of compensation you can get for a limb injury will depend on the individual circumstances of your case. However, depending on the severity of your injuries and the impact on your quality of life, you could receive compensation for things like:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of earnings
- Loss of earning capacity
- Costs of home help and home adaptations
- Costs of childcare
- Costs of travelling to and from medical appointments
At the beginning of your case, we will discuss your short-term and long-term needs for restoring your quality of life and aiding your recovery, as well as providing advice on the kind of compensation you could claim. We will specifically discuss early rehabilitation.
