Amputation Caused by Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice Attorney in New Hampshire

Amputation is without a doubt one of the most devastating of all injuries. People who've suffered an amputation are left permanently disfigured for life, and often experience intense feelings of depression and psychological distress. In addition to the emotional toll that this takes, amputees must also physically adapt to a whole new way of life. People with an amputation are also forced to readapt to life, relearning how to do even basic everyday activities.

Amputation refers to the severing or loss of a body part, usually a limb. Amputations can occur out of a variety of accidents, but can also be the result of medical malpractice. The loss of a limb can be caused by misdiagnosis when a physician fails to properly assess an illness, resulting in the deterioration of an injury or the incorrect decision to remove a limb. Amputation can result when medical negligence has occurred, such as a provider's failure to prevent infection or the spread of bacteria that makes removing the limb necessary to the patient's survival.

Are you eligible to pursue compensation?

If you had to have a limb amputated as a result of an accident, you have the right to file a lawsuit for compensation. Amputation comes with extremely high medical bills. Not only must you pay for the surgery, hospitalization, and medicine, but you must also pay for ongoing medical care, rehabilitation expenses, and adaptive equipment. When all is said and done, these expenses can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars, which already may be more money than you can reasonably afford, and when you add in lost wages, reduced future wages, and the emotional cost of amputation, you are entitled to a large sum.

Fortunately, the law provides relief if you have suffered an amputation as the result of another person's negligence, recklessness, or carelessness. As long as you can prove your injuries were the result of circumstances caused by the negligence of another, you will be awarded damages for your pain and suffering, decreased quality of life, medical bills, ongoing medical bills, lost wages, and lost earning capacity.
