Not only does it affect you physically, but it can also cause psychological problems, even more so when the amputation was a result of medical negligence or through a situation that could have been avoided.

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.

Excellent, professional and caring. Michaela and her colleagues made the whole process very easy.

Ms A

I have been using McHale and Co for both the sake of my property and the purchase of my new home. Joy handled my sale and was extremely professional, helpful and persevered when dealing with my buyers solicitors who were less than professional to deal with.
Phillippa was equally professional and extremely knowledgeable on purchasing new build properties due to her years of experience in this specialist area. She was supportive and gave me confidence that I was getting a first class service. Would use them again and recommend to my friends and family.
