Compensation can be extremely important in helping someone who has gone through a limb amputation to start their rehabilitation and build a new life. Depending on the situation, it may not be possible to work anymore, or a change of job may be needed. Compensation can cover this financial expense. Other expenses may be incurred too. Care and support in the home may be required temporarily or permanently. Private medical treatments and expensive prosthetic limbs may also be required. In addition, alterations to your living space to make life easier may be necessary too. All these financial implications of your injury can be covered by amputation compensation claims.
The loss of a limb may occur in several ways:
- Surgical Error
- Traumatic Amputation
Surgical error – Infrequently mistakes happen during surgical procedures which result in the loss of a limb. A clinical negligence claim or a medical negligence claim may be possible in these cases.
Misdiagnosis – Limbs can sometimes be amputated to prevent dangerous diseases such as cancer from spreading. In cases where this was later proved unnecessary, then a clinical negligence claim may be possible.
Traumatic Amputation – This is when a limb is amputated due to the traumatic impact of an accident. Unfortunately, many cases like this happen every year resulting from car accident, road traffic accidents or accidents in the workplace.
