90% of well run personal injury claims involving amputation injuries resulting from road traffic accidents, clinical negligence or accidents at work are settled favourably for the injured person.

Those claims which fail usually do so because of poor preparation or faulted analysis of the issues.  A tiny proportion fail because the claimant is not truthful.

Since 1948, when we started these chambers, we have represented thousands of  amputation injury claimants with unparalleled success.

We will work with the best solicitors in England and Wales to construct and settle your claim.   Choosing and managing the right experts, treating you and your family with respect and dealing with the insurers on the other side with integrity and professionalism  is the key to our success.
