Acquiring a disability can be a challenging time, especially if it was not your fault. Medical Solicitors are on hand to support clients with amputation claims.
Adapting to an amputation is different for each person. But, there is certainly an emotional and physical impact, as well as financial.
From losing income whilst taking time off work to rehabilitate, pay for specialist equipment, and meeting daily life obligations such as paying bills: you might be entitled to amputation compensations.
Medical Solicitorsare specialists in providing legal advice for people who feel they have been let down by their hospital or doctor. For people who have experienced an amputation, that could have been avoided with early detection, Medical Solicitors can help.
Loss of earnings and the cost of purchasing adaptations – some of which can accumulate to thousands of pounds for the correct style, model, and fit for each individual person – can make a big impact on a person.
However, compensation is available in certain cases, and can run into the millions.
Amputation claims for compensation can be brought in clinical negligence if amputation has occurred because of mistakes, such as the following:
- A mistake by a surgeon when carrying out an operation.
- A failure of a doctor to recognise that there is reduced blood supply to a patient’s limb.
- Failure to refer a patient for surgery in time to avoid amputation.
- Poor diabetic care, such as where a patient’s toe, foot, or ulcer has not been treated adequately by a GP or nurse. This can lead to gangrene.
The medical negligence experts at Medical Solicitors are on hand to provide support for young and old patients.
All claims are made under ‘no win, no fee’ agreements so, you do not have to worry about how you are going to afford to bring an amputation compensation claim. You have nothing to lose in speaking to Medical Solicitors.
