If you’ve suffered an amputation because of medical negligence, we can help
Although the majority of medical professionals work to a very high standard, unfortunately medical negligence does sometimes occur and the repercussions can be life-changing.
Understandably, as a patient you might be nervous before surgery and the last thing you want to have to worry about is suffering from a surgical error leading to either:
- An amputation being needed
- An amputation being carried out unnecessarily
- The incorrect limb being amputated
If you or a loved one has suffered an amputation due to medical negligence, then we’re sorry. Aside from being physically and emotionally painful, recovering after an amputation can also be financially difficult.
We’re here to help you claim compensation to cover the costs of your injury and the impacts it has had on your life.
If you’re ready to speak to somebody, you can contact our friendly, legally trained advisors free of charge on 0800 540 4258 for helpful, confidential advice.
Our service is completely obligation-free, but we can let you know whether we think you can make a claim.
What is medical negligence?
All medical professionals have a duty of care to treat you safely and to work to a high standard so that errors and accidents are avoided wherever possible.
If they’ve failed to uphold their duty of care and you’ve undergone an amputation as a result, then this could be considered medical negligence and you may be able to make a compensation claim to cover the costs and impacts of your injury.
Nobody deserves to suffer through pain or financial hardship due to an accident which wasn’t their fault. That’s why we’re here to help you to get the compensation you deserve.
Our solicitors look at each case on an individual basis so that you can get the full amount of compensation you’re entitled to.
When making your case, your solicitor will consider any impacts your accident has had on your life and your family, including:
- Lost earnings from time off work, or from leaving your job altogether
- The costs of treatment, rehabilitation and care, even if given for free by a family member
- The effect on your social life and hobbies
- Your physical pain and suffering
- The impact on your life and your family
For an estimate of the amount of compensation you may be able to receive, you can use our industry-leading compensation calculator. Our calculator is free, and gives an approximate figure based on cases similar to yours.
