Amputation Negligence

Medical negligence can lead to life-changing conditions, including the loss of a limb. You don’t anticipate that when you entrust your health to the expertise of the medical profession that the result will be amputation but this devastating outcome is all too real for The Medical Negligence Experts clients who have asked for help claiming compensation.

What is Amputation Negligence?

Losing part of your body due to negligent care is something no patient should ever have to suffer. Medical negligence implies this situation was avoidable, and caused entirely by a failing, or several failings, of the staff providing your diagnosis and care.

The fact that limb loss from clinical negligence makes up only a small proportion of the number of medical negligence claims processed every year is of little comfort to someone who has suffered this way. Amputation affects every aspect of a person’s life. They and their family have to cope with the stress of lengthy physical and mental rehabilitation, and having to adapt their lives to cope with their physical limitations. For some patients this can also mean having to give up their career and retrain in a new field.

Causes of Amputation from Medical Negligence

There are two main medical reasons behind the majority of amputations due to medical negligence: misdiagnosis and mistreatment.

Misdiagnosis can include instances such as an undetected infection which leads to sepsis and loss of blood supply, or cancerous cells which are not detected in initial tests; while mistreatment can include surgical errors, inadequate post-surgical care, or conservative treatment of an infection when a patient should be referred for specialist care. All of these are real examples of cases in the UK where people have sought – and obtained – financial compensation for amputation negligence.

Types of amputation can range from a digit amputation where an entire finger or toe, or the tip of one, is removed, to a pelvic or shoulder disarticulation where the whole leg or arm is removed together with part of the pelvis and shoulder.

Amputation Compensation Claims

NHS figures show that between 5,000 and 6,000 amputations are carried out in the UK each year. The majority of these are related to progressive conditions such as diabetes, but some stem from medical negligence.

The Medical Negligence Experts understand that while your situation may appear similar to another person’s on paper, every patient is unique in the way their lives are affected by their amputation, in the nature of their rehabilitation, in their support network, and in how they approach their changed situation.

Sea and Cruise Injury Claims

Injury or illness should not mar your holiday of a lifetime, yet many unfortunate passengers have an accident at sea or an injury on a cruise that ruins their trip. If this has happened to you, you may be able to claim compensation with the help of The Compensation Experts. Our agents are happy to offer a free, no-obligation conversation, so you have the information you need to make the right choice about what to do next.

It doesn’t matter if you are injured on a private dinghy, or fall ill while on a luxurious passenger liner, you have the right to expect that reasonable care has been taken to protect your health and safety. The personal injury solicitors we work with can assist in your claim for fair compensation for an accident at sea.

What are Sea and Cruise Injury Claims?

We have experience of handling a wide variety of claims for cruise injuries and accidents at sea. Some frequent examples are:

  • Slips and trips on unsafe surfaces, such as wet decks or loose flooring in your stateroom
  • Food poisoning or another illness caused by contaminated food or poor hygiene standards
  • Falling while embarking or disembarking due to unsafe or unsuitable steps or gangplank
  • Being injured as the result of a collision or capsize

The Compensation Experts have helped both passengers and crew members, the latter of whom are protected under work health and safety legislation. There are several high-profile accidents at sea where victims, or families of victims, have successfully claimed compensation. These include Mr Richards, the widower of Mrs Richards who was dropped into the Arctic Ocean while being transferred to a lifeboat in 2011, and the Concordia cruise disaster in 2012 which sank with 4,252 people on board, 32 of whom died.

A more typical example of compensation claims was a couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary with a cruise, only to be struck down by norovirus on their second day. While another party is not always responsible for virus outbreaks, in this instance it was found that hygiene and cleaning procedures were not adequately enforced.

Claiming Compensation for Sea and Cruise Injuries

The first step in claiming compensation for an accident or illness at sea is to talk to an advisor at The Compensation Experts. Even if you have not yet decided whether to pursue a compensation claim we can speak with you about your options and give you the information you need to make the most appropriate choice for you and your family.

We offer our clients a No Win No Fee* agreement, so you do not have to pay any legal fees in advance of receiving your payment, and nothing at all if your claim is not successful. We only work with reputable personal injury lawyers with the experience you need to obtain maximum compensation. They can, for example, advise you whether it is better to raise your claim in the UK, the country where the operator of the cruise liner is based (if not the UK), or the country where you bought your ticket, depending on the circumstances around your claim.
