Amputation claim solicitors

If you are looking for specialist amputation claim solicitors in Devon or Somerset then our team is here to help.

An amputation claim can be made where a medical mistake results in a patient requiring an amputation. This usually involves a failure to diagnose or treat a medical condition promptly enough. Conditions that carry the most risk are diabetes, sepsis, vascular disease, and meningitis. The need for amputation can also arise as a result of a surgical error.

Heading our amputation claim solicitors team is Oliver Thorne. Oliver, who is an AvMA panel lawyer, won a multi-million pound compensation settlement for an elite sportsman who had to undergo a below-knee amputation following a Devon hospital’s failure to diagnose and treat septic arthritis. Our client is now aiming to reach the Paralympic Games.

Oliver is always happy to have an informal chat with anyone contemplating a claim and to answer any questions they have. We offer home visits if required, and can also meet clients at any of our offices in North Devon, Exeter and Taunton.

Our medical negligence team is based in Devon and Somerset and works on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means that the you don’t have to pay any legal fees if you were  to lose your case. We will also fund all expenses, including the cost of medical reports as well as court fees.

Compensation is awarded for what lawyers term ‘pain, suffering and loss of amenity’. However, other claims can also be made for things such as lost earnings, the cost of medical care, rehabilitation and prosthetic costs, and adaptations to your home.

We will work with you and your loved ones to identify precisely what impact the amputation will have on your life and those around you. We will then create a compensation package that truly reflects your needs, both now and in the future.

And while the case is being resolved, we can obtain an ‘interim payment’ (an upfront sum of compensation that is payable where legal liability for the medical error has been established) to meet the costs of your rehabilitation and living expenses.

So, if you are looking for specialist amputation claim solicitors in Devon or Somerset then please get in touch with us.
