Medical accidents resulting in amputation are almost always life-changing. When amputation occurs as a result of medical negligence, compensation can be substantial because of the radical change to one’s life and the need to restore the person to as normal a life as possible.
The level of compensation received will potentially need to cover the cost of: –
- Loss of earnings (including lost future earnings/pension entitlement)
- Relocation (Relocating to suitable accommodation, such as on a ground floor)
- Adaptations (Wet rooms, handles and rails, slopes and ramps for access, wider doorways, chair and bed raisers, adapted toilets and special mattresses).
- Equipment (such as crutches, walking sticks and Zimmer frames)
- Special Care
- Prosthetics (suitable prostheses can be obtained to suit your needs and activities)
In addition, compensation is awarded to recompense you for the pain and suffering that has been caused by your injury.
