Amputation Claims

When things don’t go right, we are here to get you the answers you deserve.

An amputation is the surgical removal of part of the body such as an arm or leg. As a surgical measure, it is typically used to control pain or the spread of disease following a serious injury or illness in the affected limb.

Unfortunately, amputations can also be caused by medical (clinical) negligence resulting in life-changing injuries.

If you or a loved one have required an amputation because of negligent medical treatment, our experienced medical negligence specialists can advise whether you have a claim.

When things don’t go right with your medical treatment, we are here to help you get the answers you deserve and the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Amputations and Negligent Treatment

Amputations are sometimes required due to unforeseen circumstances or for necessary medical reasons. However, they may also be required due to:

  • mismanagement of an infection
  • failure to manage certain medical conditions, for example, diabetes or vascular conditions
  • a delay in treatment – such as cancer or a serious infection
  • failure to diagnose
  • surgical errors

If you have required an amputation as a result of negligent treatment by your GP/hospital or your amputation has been carried out to a poor standard you may be entitled to compensation.

As medical negligence solicitors, our role is to examine your medical records in conjunction with experienced medical experts to establish what happened in your case and whether the care you received was negligent.

Our medical negligence solicitors will guide you through the process of making a claim, fighting for you to receive the compensation you deserve. We also work alongside some of the most highly regarded professionals in rehabilitation, pain control and prosthetics to ensure you have access to the supportive medical care you need following your procedure.

We know that clients worry about how much it will cost to pursue a medical negligence claim. We are obliged to provide you with information about all funding options that are available and which would be the best option for you in line with the Solicitors’ Code of Conduct. Bridge McFarland LLP is able to offer all types of funding from legal aid to a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement*.
