Losing a limb can have a massive impact on a person’s life. When an amputation occurs as a result of substandard medical treatment, it can be even more difficult to come to terms with.
Our team of specialist medical negligence solicitors have dealt with claims where an amputation has become necessary due to:
- Infected pressure sores caused by substandard nursing treatment
- Surgical and chemical burns
- Delayed diagnosis of meningitis
If you think you have lost a limb as a result of medical negligence, our specialist solicitors can advise you whether you have a claim for compensation. Compensation can be claimed to help improve your quality of life by covering the cost of items such as state of the art prosthetics, specially adapted accommodation, aids and equipment, therapy and adapted transport.
