The impact of amputation is enormous, both physically and psychologically. But if it was a result of misdiagnosis or medical negligence, we can help you claim compensation for the pain and suffering you have endured.

What is amputation negligence?

The two main reasons where amputation leads to medical negligence claims are:

  • Misdiagnosis – for example, if infection sets in after surgery, but it goes unnoticed and untreated, leading to blood poisoning.
  • Mistreatment – this is usually sub-standard care, such as failing to monitor diabetes, or surgical error, such as accidental nerve damage during surgery.

Why make a claim?

We understand that life is turned upside down and you will go through traumatic change as you adapt to this life-changing event.

You will learn that there are many changes you can make to considerably improve life – whether it’s therapies, mobility aids or, perhaps, major adaptations to your home. A compensation award can help you make these changes.

Compensation can also allow you the financial security to plan your future. For example, if you can no longer continue in the work you were doing, you could be able to retrain for another career.

How can First4Lawyers help?

Our medical negligence solicitors have the legal expertise and sensitivity to support you all the way through a claim for compensation. They will investigate the evidence and put together a case to help you achieve maximum compensation. We offer a No Win No Fee service for negligence cases in England and Wales.

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Where we offer No Win No Fee services typically customers pay 25%* of the amount recovered by our solicitors, although this will be subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be less than this. Success fees are common practice and they were introduced when the law changed in April 2013.

First4Lawyers are an award-winning claims management company with a track record of delivering service that our clients love.

*Excluding Road Traffic Accident related claims where the accident happened on or after 31st May 2021. Here customers you will typically pay 30% + VAT due to changes introduced through Civil Liability Act 2018.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

There is usually a three-year period, from the date you became aware of the negligent action. The timeframe is different for those with limited mental capacity and those under 18 years of age, so it’s worth getting in touch with us to find out more.

I think I have a claim – what do I do next?

Get in touch with us for a free and confidential consultation. We’ll ask you about what took place so we can establish your situation and advise you of your options.
