Amputation compensation claims
Our medical negligence solicitors pursue compensation claims for patients who have had a limb amputated as a result of clinical or medical negligence.
Our work covers a wide range of issues but the following are common:
- delay in diagnosing cancer in the limb
- vascular problems in diabetics
- serious limb injuries or infection
Our expertise in amputation claims
With 10 partners, skilled solicitors and two qualified nurses, we can offer in depth knowledge about these complex claims. We can ensure that claims are investigated thoroughly and promptly by specialist solicitors. We have access to the best independent medical experts and barristers. Our medical negligence solicitors are members of the Panel of Expert Amputation Solicitors set up by the Limbless Association, an independent organisation which represents and assists amputees.
Whatever the nature of the case, it is very likely that one of our medical negligence solicitors will have dealt with a similar case before allowing us to focus on the most important medical and evidential issues from the beginning of the investigation. We will ensure the best possible outcome in your amputation claim.
We’re here to help
We recognise that the cost to patients of negligent medical treatment is not just physical and financial but also psychological. We also recognise that patients find it difficult to come forward about a claim arising from medical treatment. We do everything we can to help our clients, whatever their situation.
In particular we are able to draw from the knowledge gained from past cases to identify the issues affecting amputees and their families. We focus on getting the compensation and the expert independent advice that allows our clients to continue their rehabilitation and to purchase aids and equipment which enables them to live their lives to the full. One of our clients for whom we obtained compensation for his amputation has gone on to become a Paralympic athlete!
We have clients all over the country and are pleased to visit families in their homes. We feel that it is important to speak to our clients face to face so you feel comfortable with your solicitor and so your solicitor gets to know you and can better understand your individual needs.
