An amputation is defined as the ‘intentional surgical removal of a limb or a body part. It is performed to remove diseased tissue or relieve pain’. Common body parts that can be amputated include fingers, toes, hands, feet, arms and legs. If a body part has been badly damaged in an accident or suffered a serious infection or any other condition, it may need to be surgically amputated.
Our Solicitors specialise in amputation compensation claims. They have represented Claimants where amputations have been necessary after clinical negligence has occurred, for example where an untreated infection has led to an amputation. They have also represented clients who have suffered amputations as a result of accidents for example on construction sites and in road traffic accidents. In just the first two years after undergoing amputation surgery, an amputee can face hundreds of thousands of pounds or more in medical bills.
