Amputation clinical negligence

There are many reasons an amputation may need to be administered, but claims for negligence can only be made where a doctor has not performed their duties to the best of their ability. Amputations of this nature are commonly caused by:

  • Delays in diagnosis
  • Misdiagnosis
  • A failure to diagnose
  • Inappropriate treatment
  • Errors during surgery

In some cases, amputations are performed when they are not needed, resulting in patients suffering unnecessarily. This is also classed as medical negligence.
