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.
