Amputation Injury Claims

Carrs Solicitors have experience of successfully litigating amputation injury claims gained over the years to include a recent out of court settlement for over £600,000. These cases are life changing events and the circumstances of every injured client’s case are different.  We provide a very personal approach to representation of our clients and are commitment to holding defendants fully accountable

Traumas which could result in an amputation following work related accidents include:

  • Injuries from fire
  • Injuries caused by road traffic accidents
  • Machine related accidents
  • Severe chemical burns
  • Diabetes sufferers

In far too many of these cases the employer has flouted duties to guard dangerous parts of machinery (dating from Victorian times) - and to isolate live or moving machinery before workers can come within dangerous areas.  In our experience, in all these cases the employer’s insurer seeks to pass as much blame as possible upon the employee. We have significant experience at effectively addressing these issues and protecting our client’s interests. We also have access to the best engineering opinion through longstanding relationships with tried and tested experts.
