An amputation is where a body part, or parts, have been removed either as a direct result of trauma, or through medical necessity.
The most common body parts to be amputated include:
- Hands and fingers
- Feet and toes
If you have suffered an amputation as a direct result of someone else’s actions or negligence then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Tenbury Wells.
What can I make a compensation claim in Tenbury Wells for?
If you have suffered an injury within the past three years which resulted in the loss of a limb, and the accident was caused by someone else (i.e. you were not to blame) then you may be able to make a compensation claim in Tenbury Wells.
This can also be the case if you have lost a limb as a result of medical or clinical negligence.
If you have suffered such a trauma then you will be significantly affected, both emotionally and physically. We know that there is no amount of money you can receive that will make up for the loss of a limb; however, a successful compensation claim in Tenbury Wells may give you the financial assistance you need to cover unexpected costs as a result of your amputation.
- If you have lost a limb or body part then you are likely to experience loss of earnings as you take time away from work to fully recover. This recovery can take an exceptionally long time depending on the injuries sustained, for example, you may need to learn to walk again if you have a prosthetic leg fitted.
- Amputation results in often lengthy treatment, both in terms of emotional and psychological support, but also physiotherapy and rehabilitation, not to mention potentially high prescription costs. A successful compensation claim in Tenbury Wells may be able to help cover these costs.
- Depending on the extent of your injuries you may have to make certain adaptations to your lifestyle and home. You might have to sell your car and replace it with a specially adapted one to accommodate your changed abilities. Equally, you might have to adapt your home to allow for wheelchair access, you might even have to move if your home cannot be adapted suitably to your changing needs.
