How do I make a negligent amputation claim
If you or a member of your family has undergone an amputation which you suspect was due to negligence by a medical practitioner, you may be entitled to make a claim. Damages awarded in amputation claims cover financial compensation for particular injuries as well as the need to fund adaptations to the home or purchase specialist mobility equipment and prostheses.
Medical negligence claims are complex and demanding. The first thing to do is to contact an expert law firm like Access Legal which specialises in these sort of cases.
It is important that your chosen law firm has relationships with the appropriate medical and other experts who can be instructed to assess the right amount of damages you should claim. Their evidence will be absolutely crucial to the success of your claim and improving your chances of recovery and regaining as much independence as possible.
You normally have three years to issue a claim in Court from the date of the incident but you should seek further advice about this from your solicitor.
