Amputation from a Road Traffic Accident

Every year in the UK thousands of people are injured in road traffic accidents, but unfortunately some of these injuries are more severe than others and when it comes to amputation, this type of injury can have a direct impact on your lifestyle. If you are injured to the point where you require amputation then you will most likely lose the ability to move one of the most important parts of your body – and this can have a direct impact on your lifestyle. As a result you may be eligible for a compensation claim to cover any costs that you incur.
