Compensation for amputation injuries
The loss of a limb can be an incredibly traumatising experience for any person, in many situations we find that we perhaps don’t understand how important a leg or arm is until we aren’t able to use it anymore. Both our legs and arms contribute immensely to our ability to perform regular daily tasks, and without the use of these limbs it can often be difficult to perform a number of common tasks with ease.
Although there are a number of prosthetic limbs now available on the market, these do little to replace the full functionality of our regular arms and legs and if you have been left needing an amputation as the result of a negligence of another person then you may look for a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred.
WHO COULD I MAKE A CLAIM AGAINST FOR ANY AMPUTATION INJURIES THAT I HAVE SUSTAINED?
If you have sustained an amputation then there are a number of people who could consider making a claim against, depending on how your injury was caused. If you were the victim of the direct negligence of another person perhaps through a car accident or a workplace incident then you may consider making a compensation claim against them, whether it’s a member of the public or perhaps your employer.
WHAT HEALTH PROBLEMS OR ILLNESSES COULD I INCUR THROUGH THIS NEGLIGENCE?
For anyone who has to undergo an amputation there are a number of potential problems that they can face later in life, some of these include:
- Full or partial amputation of an arm
- Full or partial amputation of a leg
- Full or partial amputation of a finger
- Full or partial amputation of a toe.
