Amputation Medical Malpractice Claims

Losing a limb can be hugely traumatic and this can be exasperated if your medical experts make mistakes either in surgery or when treating an infection or disease. If this is the case, you might be eligible for compensation.

How Can Medical Negligence Lead to Amputation?

There are a few different circumstances in which amputation has happened due to medical negligence, for example:

What Are The Main Causes of Paralysis?

  • Surgical error
  • Poor treatment for diabetes
  • Misdiagnosis by GP
  • Failing to diagnose an infectious disease
  • Failure to identify a traumatic injury
  • Delay in diagnosis of cancer
  • Failing to diagnosis meningitis
  • Inappropriate treatment of an infected limb
Our experienced medical negligence amputation solicitors will always put you first and can give you advice on:
  • Adaptions to your property
  • Specialist equipment, such as lifts or adjustments to cars
  • Private medical treatment and therapy
  • Rehabilitation or retraining
  • Extensive prosthesis
