Amputation Injury Claims

Amputation Injury Claims

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.

These types of claims require specialist injury lawyers like us who have lawyers used to representing amputee injury victims.

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:

Pain and suffering
Having a part of the body amputated is a very traumatic experience. A person would be able to claim for pain and suffering due to what they would have endured both physical and psychologically.
Loss of earnings
A person who has had to have a limb amputated may suffer a loss of earnings due to having time off work, or potentially not being able to return to work at all. If an amputee is able to return to work, they may not be able to continue the job they were doing, meaning they may face a reduction in pay. If this was to happen, an amputee could claim for loss of earnings.
Adaptations to lifestyle

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.

Healthcare costs
Ongoing medical treatment will be a regular requirement for a person who has had a body part amputated. Healthcare treatments can include prescription costs and rehabilitation. Not only that, but psychological treatment can be required as problems may arise from the loss of a body part such as depression, lack of self-esteem, and other psychological issues that could be caused by an amputation.
