Amputation injuries are, of course, very serious indeed.
As well as amputation from traumatic Injury, medical amputation may be necessary from suffering a serious injury or a serious infection to allow for a better quality of life, or to prevent an infection spreading to the rest of the body and affecting your health. It can also be required to help control pain.

What can you claim for?
If someone else is to blame for an amputation needing to take place, in cases such as medical negligence or personal injury accidents, you might be able to claim compensation for a variety of things:
On becoming an amputee, a person’s whole life will change in what they can and cannot do anymore. This means needing to adapt your surroundings in order to make it easier to live, which can be very expensive. This could mean having to move or renovate your home in order to make it more wheelchair friendly.
You can include this as part of a claim, as well as looking at medical devices too. Wheelchairs or prosthetic limbs may be required as well as other walking aids, which can all be claimable. This can all be very expensive and not something you would have done or needed otherwise. You are able to claim for adaptations to life style if you have had to had a body part amputated.
