Medical negligence amputation claims

Having represented people in your position who have lost limbs due to medical mistakes and surgical error we are familiar with all the important legal and medical issues that commonly arise. Amputation cases differ from most other medical negligence claims, impacting on every aspect of your life.

We recognise the importance of rehabilitation and can obtain funding for the specialist rehab services that you will need. We can also help with counselling and support.

We will ensure that your compensation package includes provision for modern, state-of-the-art prostheses so you can resume living life to the full. Great strides have been made in prosthetic technology in recent years, enabling you to return to the activities and sports you previously enjoyed. The cosmetic appearance of prosthetics has also improved and by working with experts in the field we can match skin colouring to ensure you feel happy and confident.

Compensation must take into account any need to modify or adapt your living accommodation. The cost of medical and nursing care also need to be factored into the settlement.

Your future career opportunities need to be considered, with funding being made available for retraining if required. And if your future earnings are going to be adversely affected then your compensation package needs to reflect this loss.
