  • Surgical and clinical mistakes

  • Delays in treatment and diagnosis

How do I claim compensation?

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.

What will I receive compensation for in a case of this nature?.

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

  • Psychological damage

  • 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.

If you speak to us about your case, we will be able to give you an initial idea of the range of compensation that is generally awarded for the type of injury you have sustained.

How can I finance a compensation claim?

We know that funding an amputation negligence compensation claim might be a worry, so we offer a range of options. These include:

  • Legal Aid

  • Legal expenses cover

  • After the Event insurance (ATE insurance)

  • Private payment

What is the time limit for bringing a claim?

For an adult, there is a three-year time limit for bringing a medical negligence claim in the UK and a two-year time limit for the Republic of Ireland. This is known as the limitation period. It runs either from the date of the negligent incident or the date that you became aware of the injury you suffered.

In the case of a child, the three-year (UK) and two-year (ROI) time limit runs from the date of their 18th birthday.
