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
Following negations with the defendant, Mr X was offered £250,000 gross of the interim payments of £52,009 to settle the claim. Mr X accepted this offer and was very thankful for our assistance with his claim.
Absolutely amazing service, I had an accident back in 2016 and they fought tooth and nail to get me the treatment and pay out that I deserved, my case handler Amy kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would definitely recommend Howells to anyone.
From start to finish my daughter’s medical negligence claim was handled brilliantly. Communication was excellent and her case was handled sensitively and professionally, with a successful outcome at the end.

Sue dealt with my personal injury claim with professionalism at all times. She kept both myself and my son fully informed throughout the process and always responded to queries quickly and efficiently. I would have no hesitation in using this firm again.

Stuart Marks
I recently used Howells' for a claim. After an initial telephone conversation, Amy (our assigned representative) went through the process of our potential claim. She outlined time frames and the strength of our case. We ended up receiving compensation above our expectations. I was thoroughly impressed the team from Howells and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. They handled the whole process in a manner which inspired confidence, knowing that we were in good hands.

Simon Marks

You were great and I cannot thank you enough for the end result. Also thank you to Glendora and Amy for all your help. 5* service all round

Gavin Herbert
Life changing issues affected our daughter due to a misdiagnosis and then catalogue of errors. We are so grateful to Sue and the team and the lovely Glendora! Thank you so much for all your hard work, perseverance and pure doggedness. Hopefully this has saved another family from having to go through this! Amazing service from such nice people! Enjoy the hamper!
