Amputation Claim Solicitors
At P. A. Duffy & Co Solicitors, we represent all victims of amputation negligence claims cases in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Our team are experienced, understanding and sympathetic and will work tirelessly on your behalf to secure the compensation you are owed for what has happened.
One can suffer an amputation injury as a result of a medical condition which is unavoidable. However, amputation injury could have been prevented in some cases if the illness had been properly detected and treated. Such medical errors include:
Failure to diagnose and properly treat conditions, diseases or infections such as meningitis, sepsis and cellulitis.
Surgical and clinical mistakes
Delays in treatment and diagnosis
If you have had a limb amputated and consider it to be the result of a medical error, get in touch with our team of knowledgeable medical malpractice experts. They will offer a free consultation. They'll hear your account and provide you with advice regarding whether or not your claim should be explored further.
If you ask us to represent you, we will start by taking details of the event and assessing what has happened and who is responsible. We will assemble evidence supporting your claim and contact the relevant health trust to advise them of the claim.
We will ask our medical experts to carry out examinations and write a report about the injustice you have suffered. This will form the basis of your case.
If the other side admits liability, we will negotiate with them to agree on the amount of compensation to be paid to you. Where they deny liability or the amount of compensation offered is not sufficient, your case will go to court. We will ensure that you have our support throughout and that you are represented by an expert medical negligence advocate.
Compensation can be awarded for a range of issues, including:
Pain and suffering
Reduction in quality of life, or being unable to enjoy normal activities
Care and support costs
Financial losses, such as loss of earnings
Rehabilitation and equipment costs
How much compensation will I receive?
The size of amputation negligence compensation payments varies widely depending on the severity of what has happened and the specific circumstances of your suffering.
