The loss of a limb is an incredibly traumatic experience as you have to completely adapt the way you live your life. 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.

If you have suffered as a result of a mistake or misjudgement from a surgeon or other medical professional, the clinical negligence team at McHale & Co are on hand to offer advice and support if you decide to make a claim. Call us today on 0161 928 3848 or complete our contact form on the right-hand side of this page.

 

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.
