Amputations occur most frequently to the upper or lower limbs, though they can affect any part of the body. Some amputations can result from negligence during medical treatment, for example, where there has been a delay in diagnosis, or poor management of conditions such as diabetes, infection, gout and deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
In these types of circumstances then patients can bring amputation claims for compensation for the injuries and distress suffered.

Whatever has caused it, an amputation is a traumatic event in itself, not to mention the impact it has on your day to day life. An award of compensation can help you to get your life back on track. Compensation can help to put adaptations in place at your home, obtain additional equipment and support, buy better quality prostheses than are available on the NHS, and to have private rehabilitative treatment, together with paying for the care and support that you may need.
If you have had an amputation following medical treatment then please contact the experts at Clinical Negligence Team who can advise you in relation to amputation claims and if you can make a claim.
The amount of compensation you will receive will depend on the type of amputation you have had and the effect it has had on your day to day life and your independence. Compensation for an amputation can be substantial because of the significant impact of losing part of your body, so it is important that your amputation claim is dealt with by a specialist with experience in this type of injury.
The Clinical Negligence Team has excellent working links with many specialists from various disciplines specific to amputations. We work with these experts to offer a full rehabilitative package to help you rebuild your life at the earliest time.
