Ottawa Amputation Injury Lawyers

Amputation and disfigurement both involve a permanent injury and change in your life. When determining compensation, we take into account lifelong losses and costs.

We also take into account the sensitive nature of the injuries involved, and the emotional damage that loss of a limb and permanent disfigurement can cause. Our firm works closely with counsellors, physiotherapists and other trusted professionals who understand what you are going through, and can help you adapt to your injuries.

We stand firm in our determination to ensure that your needs are met, and that your lifelong injuries are treated with the seriousness they deserve.


Amputation is considered a catastrophic injury in Ontario. This means that the cost of dealing with this injury is higher than for most other injuries.

For every client, losing a limb creates a unique situation which must be carefully considered with relation to your life and career before the injury. Loss of a hand, for example, may have a very different impact on you depending on whether you are a teacher or a professional pianist.
