Loss of a limb is hugely traumatic and will often have a catastrophic impact on a client’s quality of life and mental health.
Whilst often an amputation is a dramatic but necessary surgical measure to save a patient’s life, tragically on some occasions it is the case that had appropriate treatment been provided to a patient from the outset then the loss of the limb could have been avoided.
Substandard treatment of a variety of medical conditions can result in an amputation being necessary. These include:
- Compartment syndrome
- Bone cancer
- Vascular problems
- Bed/pressure sores
- Orthopaedic fractures
If you think that you or a family member may have undergone an amputation as a result of failures in their medical care then you may be entitled to compensation.
We know that an amputation care cause profound problems impacting upon every aspect of your life and can result in psychological as well as physical damage.
We at Freemans have a wealth of experience in dealing with all types of Clinical Negligence claims and we will work tirelessly to ensure that not only is compensation secured for the pain and losses caused by the injuries suffered but that support and any further treatment and rehabilitation needed can be sought.
