Failure in Diagnosis and Treatment Leading to Amputation

If a medical professional fails to diagnose or treat a condition or delays in treating a condition then this may ultimately lead to the need for an amputation. Improper management of an infection, overlooked complications or delays in providing treatment may sometimes lead to amputation. Errors during surgery also lead to this type of negligence claim. Sometimes surgical procedures may be carried out on the wrong part of the body. Infections may occur due to surgery leading to amputation. Neglect in post-operative care may sometimes result in the need for amputation.

Making an Amputation Negligence Claim

In order to make an amputation negligence claim, it will be necessary to prove that the treatment provided was negligent and that the amputation would not have occurred without the negligence occurring. 

Time Limits

You normally only have 3 years to start Court Proceedings from the date that you knew or could reasonably have been expected to have known that you had suffered an injury due to something a doctor or nurse had done or had failed to do. There may be some circumstances in which a court may allow a claim to proceed after the 3-year time limit has expired however we highly recommend that you pursue making a claim as soon as possible should you feel that negligence has occurred. 

Medical Expert Evidence

During your claim, it will be necessary for us to obtain evidence from a medical practitioner to confirm that amputation would not have occurred or been required without negligent treatment occurring. 

We understand that an amputation is a life-changing event that has serious physical and psychological consequences as well as significant implications for the financial position and day-to-day life of you and your family.

Our compassionate team will support you at all stages of your case and help you pursue compensation for amputation negligence.

Making a Compensation Claim With Thompson & Co

We will usually deal with your claim on a No-Win-No-Fee basis unless we identify a more suitable method of funding your claim that you wish to use. You will not have to enter into any credit agreements. 

If your Claim is Unsuccessful

  • you will not have to pay our costs
  • We will usually arrange an insurance policy so that you do not have to pay any disbursements (medical report fees, court fees etc) incurred on your behalf. You will not have to pay for the insurance policy if you are unsuccessful. 

You will therefore not have to pay anything if you lose your claim. 

If your claim is successful you will usually be able to recover part or all of our costs and disbursements from your opponent. 

You will pay out of your compensation

  • any shortfall in costs that we are unable to recover from your opponent 
  • and disbursements that we are unable to recover from your opponent 
  • Our success fee
  • The premium for the insurance

we will however cap the amount you have to pay out of your compensation at a maximum of 25% of the compensation recovered. You will therefore receive a minimum of 75% of any compensation recovered in your claim. 

We charge a success fee to reflect the risk we take when we make our fees conditional upon the success of your claim. The success fee we charge allows us to indicate to clients that we will not charge them for our work if they are unsuccessful with their claim

Losses

Keep a record of any financial losses you have suffered as a result of medical negligence. This will include for example any wage slips or P60s. You should also keep any receipts for other losses which may include:

  • The cost of medical treatment or medication
  • Damage to clothing
  • Loss of earnings
  • Travel expenses to and from your GP or Hospital for treatment
  • Care and assistance someone has had to give you because of your injuries
