If you have had an amputation and you feel medical or clinical negligence was to blame, you have a right to claim compensation.

An amputation or loss of a limb through trauma or medical necessity can be a difficult thing to come to terms with and have drastic effects on the victim’s life, ranging from the challenging to the life changing. However, the loss of a limb through medical negligence or due to circumstances that could have been avoided i.e. misdiagnosis, lack of safety precautions, can leave sufferers feeling extremely angry and distressed.

How Can We Help with your Amputation Claim

In either case, Forbes solicitors can help you or your loved ones claim compensation to help you get your life back on track.

Whether you have lost a limb through an accident or through medical negligence, Forbes Solicitors can help you claim compensation for your injuries and fight to make sure your best interests are looked after.

There are many reasons that would require someone to have an amputation, but the main categories involve traumatic amputations and surgical amputations.

Traumatic amputations can occur during serious accidents, where a person’s limbs or digits are literally torn from their body. These types of accidents are usually associated with road accidents and accidents at work especially where there is heavy machinery involved.

Surgical amputations are sometimes necessary if someone is a victim of clinical negligence. If there is a delay in diagnosis of cancer or meningitis and an infected limb needs to be removed this can be classed as clinical negligence. In addition, failure to diagnose or treat a disease, infection or condition such as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) or a circulation problem can lead to a victim needing a limb amputated.
