Making a toe amputation accident claim
Losing part of your body, even one as small as a toe, can have a significant impact on your life. If you have had to have a toe amputated as a result of someone else’s negligence, you could claim for compensation. A successful claim may not restore your toe, but it can help you with the financial losses you suffered as a result of the amputation. You could be compensated for:
- Medical expenses associated with the amputation of your toe.
- Other expenses arising as a direct result of the toe amputation, such as transport costs to and from the hospital.
- Loss of earnings for any period you were unable to work due to the toe amputation.
- Pain and suffering caused by the toe amputation.
Toe amputations as a result of accident or injury
An accident or injury can lead to the amputation of a toe in one of two ways. A traumatic amputation occurs at the scene of the accident, such as when the toe is literally torn away or cut off during an accident. Surgical amputation may also be necessary as a result of a trauma. A severe injury to a toe can leave no option but amputation if the toe cannot be repaired. If it is left attached, it could become infected and this infection could spread to the healthy tissue in the foot.
Some of the more common accidents that can lead to toe amputations include the following:
- Crush injuries.
- Road accidents, particularly motorcycle accidents.
- Burn injuries.
- Exposure to harmful chemicals such as acid.
- Accidents at work, often involving machinery.
- Clinical and medical negligence.
