Specialist amputation solicitors

Specialist amputation solicitors

Amputation can impact on all areas of your life, sometimes under quite sudden circumstances.

Family situations are forever changed and normal day-to-day activities can become much more challenging.

Specialist equipment and adaptations are often required at home, with changes in working situations also impacting on family finances.

If you’ve needed an amputation as a result of an accident, or as a result of medical professionals making mistakes or failing in their duty of care to you, you could be able to make a claim for compensation.

Our specialist solicitors work to secure the best possible treatment and the compensation to help our clients live as independently as possible.

Was it medical negligence?

Was it medical negligence?

Amputations as a result of medical negligence can be caused by:

  • Complications relating to serious diseases such as diabetes and cancer being missed and not treated promptly.
  • Delays in the diagnosis of a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or the failure to recognise blood supply being cut off to a limb.
  • Poor management of treatment for diabetic patients, particularly foot injuries and vascular issues.
  • Delayed treatment of infections.
  • Surgeons operating on the wrong site.
  • Negligent treatment of fractures.

Since Elizabeth Maliakal took over my case for medical negligence. I am pleased to say her service was outstanding. Her communication was excellent. She was always up to date and made sure to keep in touch with me regularly. Elizabeth made sure I understood what was happening and always answered my questions in depth. Coming from a foreign background, I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings because of the language barrier, but Elizabeth worked her way around this. I am grateful for all her hard work. Thank you to Elizabeth Maliakal and Hudgell Solicitors.

Darrel Fuentebaja
Thank you to Hudgell Solicitors particularly Sarah Moore who was assigned to my case. I was kept well informed throughout the whole process via email and phone, and always received a prompt reply to any questions that I had. It took a long time for my case to come to close for various reasons but never during this time did I feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. Sarah was very empathetic and supported me throughout with her excellent level of knowledge and professionalism. Thank you again.

What is the time limit for making an amputation compensation claim?

If aged 18 and over, you will typically have three years from the date that the injury was caused.
In cases relating to health care, you would have three years from when the negligence occurred, or from the date that you became aware of negligent treatment.
For under-18s, there is no time limit.
However, once a child reaches 18, the standard 3 year claim period comes into effect.

What will an amputation compensation claim cover?

Should you experience the loss of a limb due to the negligent actions of others, your claim for compensation may include:

  • Pain and suffering.
  • Loss of earnings due to time off work.
  • Future loss of earnings.
  • Healthcare costs such as medical treatment, physiotherapy, rehabilitation and prescription costs.
  • Care support.
