Some medical procedures result in an amputation. In the worst cases, this is devastating for the patient involved, as it can cause disability, loss of independence and major changes in lifestyle. The psychological and emotional impact can also be severe, particularly if the amputation could have been avoided.
This may mean you have suffered an amputation due to medical negligence and you could file an amputation compensation claim. Contact Longden Walker & Renney Solicitors on 0191 5666 500 or tell us your situation via our no obligation online enquiry form.
You could be covered by a No Win No Fee agreement, otherwise known as a conditional fee agreement, public funding (Legal Aid) or a legal expenses benefit attached to your household insurance. In any instance, Longden Walker & Renney will always advise you of your funding options from the outset, so you don’t have to worry.
Some common causes of amputation include:
- Delays in cancer diagnosis;
- Diabetic vascular problems;
- Mistreatment of serious limb injuries;
- Operations carried out in the wrong place;
- Medical mistakes which lead to amputation at a later date.
