Avoidable Amputations

Limb Amputation

Each year people with diabetes or vascular disease receive limb amputations that could have been avoided. A history of ulcers, nerve damage and circulatory problems can all put people at high risk of amputation. Therefore these patients require close monitoring and careful treatment by a well-qualified and multi-disciplinary team. With these provisions, and similar efforts taken by the patient, cases requiring an amputation should be rare.

Where amputations do become necessary, they can sometimes be the result of negligent behaviour of treating medical staff. Should this be the case, the patient should consider a claim for clinical negligence. This is important so as to seek compensation for the life-altering consequences of the situation. It is also important at this stage to choose the right solicitor to deal with your claim.
