Amputation or limb loss caused by medical negligence

Medical errors and mistakes can occasionally lead to surgical amputation or limb loss. If this has happened to you, or a loved one, you’ll know how difficult it can be to process and rebuild your life. Compensation can ease the adjustment – and let you focus on recovery.

No win, no fee

We work on a no win, no fee basis, so there’s no need to worry about costs.

Our specialist medical negligence solicitors help people (children and adults) who have suffered an amputation due to medical negligence.  For instance:

  • Delayed diagnosis or treatment of infection such as sepsis, meningitis, necrotising fasciitis, osteomyelitis
  • Failure to identify problems with veins or arteries which affect the blood supply, e.g. compartment syndrome, deep vein thrombosis (DVTs), peripheral artery disease
  • Substandard care of diabetes leading to complications such as peripheral neuropathy
  • Delayed diagnosis of cancer 
  • Surgical error or mistakes 

The amount of compensation awarded will take into account a range of factors, for example, the injury itself; the impact of the injury on your quality of life; your past, current and future expenses and losses including any loss of earnings; care, rehabilitation and medical needs; prosthetics; and specific accommodation requirements.

Claiming compensation for amputation or limb loss arising from substandard medical care can provide you with the support you deserve, including:

  • Advanced prosthetics (which may not be available on the NHS) including Osseointegration if appropriate

  • Specialised physiotherapy and counselling to aid your physical and emotional rehabilitation
  • Suitable housing
  • Adapted vehicles 
  • Specialist equipment and appliances
  • Medication and treatment
  • Financial security for the future

Our team of specialist medical negligence lawyers have helped a range of clients who suffered limb loss to obtain compensation to secure access to the best possible rehabilitation, prosthetics and support to positively plan for their future.
