  • Medical negligence

Our solicitors will make sure to get to know you and your case thoroughly so that you can come out with the best possible outcome for you in the most stress-free and easy way.

Medical reasons for amputations

Sometimes, amputations are necessary. With illnesses such as cancer and diabetes, when the illness has declined, amputations can be lifesaving. However, individuals can still experience medical negligence leading to amputations when:

  • The doctor failed to diagnose the illness in good time. If the illness is diagnosed in good time, amputations can be avoided if the correct treatment is given.
  • The doctor failed to diagnose the illness correctly, consequently leading to incorrect treatment, which leads to complications including amputations.

It is the doctor’s professional responsibility to take care of their patients in the best possible way and make decisions that could be life-changing if it is for the greater good. Sometimes, amputations are necessary and can be lifesaving, however sometimes if carried out incorrectly they can be catastrophic.

How much compensation will I get?

The amount of compensation usually depends on the seriousness of the injury. The level of physical and mental damage is considered and how much it had to cost you financially. Our experienced solicitors will gather any information or evidence to help you with your case.
