Amputation Claims

Our medical negligence solicitors understand that adapting to life after having a limb amputated can be difficult, especially if the need for amputation has been caused by a medical professional’s failure to provide appropriate care.

Making an amputation claim can help to pay for physiotherapy, travel expenses and changes to your home that need to help you adapt to daily life.

What is an Amputation?

If left untreated some illnesses can lead to life changing injuries such as the loss of a limb, also known as amputation. However it is a medical professionals responsibility to ensure that illnesses are diagnosed as soon as possible so that they are able to provide appropriate treatment to prevent life changing side effects, such as the loss of a limb.

Most often amputation must be carried out if a limb has suffered from severe loss of blood supply however it may also be necessary in cases of severe infection, gangrene, limb cancer and serious trauma.

In some circumstances the loss of a limb is unavoidable however our solicitors have acted on behalf of many clients where the loss of one of their limbs was caused by medical negligence.

If you have suffered from the loss of a limb as a result of medical negligence our solicitors will help you to secure the compensation you deserve.

Common causes of Amputation

Some of the most common causes of an amputation include:

  • Delayed or misdiagnosis of limb cancer
  • Surgical error
  • Wrong site amputation
  • Severe infection in the limb
  • Failure to diagnose ischemia
  • Inappropriate care for diabetes

There are many circumstances in which an amputation claim could be made however these are the most common reasons that our medical negligence solicitors have seen in cases we have acted on.
