Amputation can have significant physical, emotional, psychological and financial effects on you and those close to you. There are two types:
- Surgical Amputation which can happen if a body part is damaged badly in an accident, or it has developed a serious infection.
- Traumatic Amputation which happens as a direct result of an accident, where body parts are lost at the time of the incident, eg at work or in a road traffic accident.
Why You Need To Claim After an Amputation
Whatever the cause of your amputation, your immediate considerations will include specialist rehabilitation support, prostheses and interim payments to cover any loss of earnings. You will need lifelong care and support, medical treatment and advanced prostheses.You may also need specialist modifications to your home, plus equipment to help you remain mobile and independent to maintain a decent quality of life.
Why Should You Claim After An Amputation?
Whilst the NHS and statutory support agencies can offer some help, their funds and time are limited and unfortunately, inadequate. The private sector opens up a whole new world of support for you and your family, both in terms of treatment, rehabilitation, care and equipment which goes far beyond anything the NHS can offer.
Making a claim gives you access to all this and allows you to maximise the chances of being able to return to a fulfilling life and, often, work.
