Amputation claims can cover anything from the loss of an entire arm down to a single toe. Any form of limb loss can be emotionally traumatic and in the most serious cases, life-changing.
An amputation, or the loss of a limb, can occur in a number of scenarios arising from negligence:
- A road traffic accident – as the driver, passenger or a pedestrian
- An accident at work, usually involving dangerous machinery or dangerous substance(s)
- Surgical removal or any other serious injury that makes the limb useless
- Infection from surgery such as gangrene, making the limb vulnerable
We realise the effects of such an injury can be devastating both emotionally and physically. We aim to alleviate some of this stress by providing effective legal advice and bringing an amputation claim to ensure assistance with aids and rehabilitation.
