Losing a limb is traumatic in itself, but it also makes work and daily life extremely hard. For people who have lost a leg, getting around is problematic. The difficulty of working can cause serious financial loss, and many of the ordinary daily tasks that were done with ease in the past can become a real challenge.
Amputation: medical negligence
When medical accidents lead to amputation, awards of damages can be substantial. It is important that your solicitor has the skills and experience to do the best for you. Awards of compensation can make life a lot easier, enabling people to:
• Adapt their homes or arrange more suitable accommodation
• Obtain help and equipment for the home
• Buy a more suitable car and good-quality wheelchair
• Have better-quality prosthetic limbs than are available on the NHS.
