Recover your compensation

If you consider that your amputation was preventable and unnecessary, we may be able to help you by claiming compensation. This may not take your life back to how it was prior to the surgery, but it can help in so many ways.

Modifications to your home, transport, therapy; all can be brought into the picture once you receive adequate and necessary compensation. Our specialist legal team are skilled in dealing with many such medical negligence claims and understand the trauma and upset that you have already experienced.

Because we have worked with many clients over the years, we understand the processes involved and can therefore work towards obtaining maximum benefit for you from the compensation received.

Causes of amputation

There are many reasons for amputation taking place, but the majority of amputations are done to prevent more serious illness or medical problems. Most amputations are not negligent. However, some amputations could so easily have been prevented with timely and accurate medical and nursing care. The amputation may have been necessary due to reduced blood supply, infection, gangrene, limb cancer or some other form of trauma.

If the medical team or the GP caring for you were not proactive, you can be left with the very real and difficult task of having to face the rest of your life as an amputee. Many clients have come to us with claims due to various reasons, including:

  • Limb cancer being diagnosed too late
  • Improper care of diabetes
  • Ischaemia not diagnosed
  • Infection not detected
  • Error during surgery leading to amputation during or thereafter
  • Amputation of the wrong limb

Many diabetes patients sufferer badly, particularly with ulcers on the feet that, if neglected, result in amputation. Shockingly, 1 in 10 diabetes patients get ulcers, and 50% of amputations within the UK are carried out on diabetics.
